Family friendly travelling in Manila

With its wonderful climate, exciting world-class attractions, and fascinating history, Manila is a vibrant city that welcomes families with open arms. Amid its jumble of colors and culture, you'll discover superb museums and parks, fragments of its colonial past, and the latest in entertainment—for both kids and the young at heart. The warm Filipino welcome ensures that the allure of the ‘Pearl of the Orient’ is one that cuts across the generations.

Things to see in Manila

It's along Manila Bay, and the long sweep of Roxas Boulevard, that you'll find some of the most kid-friendly sights in town, starting with Manila Ocean Park. Whether it’s watching the mermaids dance underwater, walking the stunning 220-degree curved walkway underneath the prowling sharks, or feeding the penguins, educational fun can be had by all. Nearby is Rizal Park, Manila's much-loved green space. Here, your little ones can let off steam amid the gardens, famed monuments, and playgrounds. The ruined walls and forts of the Intramuros provide plenty of food for the imagination, while the Mall of Asia supplies the real thing. Once the largest mall in the Philippines, its endless fast-food outlets, top fashion stores, and skating rinks offer entertainment for everyone. And don't forget the Manila Zoological and Botanical Garden—with its tigers, elephants, and hippos—and the Mind Museum, which takes you on an exciting journey through science.

Look out for crèches, babysitting services, play facilities, and pools designed with kids in mind at family-friendly Manila hotels.

Where to stay in Manila

You'll find some of the best Manila family-friendly hotel strung along Manila Bay in the Ermita district. Not only do you get great sea views here, you're also close to the capital's best attractions, found along the Roxas Boulevard. Another good location for kid-friendly hotels in Manila is Makati City. Close to the Mind Museum, you'll also find high-quality restaurants and fashion stores that'll keep the adults entertained, too. The Ortegas Center, a recently developed part of the city, boasts plenty of family-friendly hotels in Manila's west side. While business is a big part of this district, it's also known for its wonderful parks and vibrant malls.

How to get to Manila

Ninoy Aquino International Airport is the main point of entry for those wanting to travel to Manila. This city center airport is actually very close to Ermita and Makati City, two of the top family-friendly hotel districts. You can take a pre-booked transfer to your hotel from here, or hire a taxi. The city's buses and jeepneys are probably best avoided by those with kids. Taxis make sense for most trips, but lots of fun can be had traveling around Manila in a pedicab. Even better—hire a traditional horse-drawn carriage, or calesa, to tour the old town's narrow streets.
