The City of Taguig might be known for its flourishing business scene, and thriving bars and restaurants, but there’s plenty to draw families to its ever-changing landscape. Even the littlest member of the family will find something to be entertained with. Whether it’s indoor play areas, parks, or museums, Taguig’s got you covered.
This indoor play facility is perfect for little ones who enjoy creating their own make-believe worlds. Designed as an interactive city, Kidzania offers a unique play experience by offering realistic role-playing action for children where they can learn about different adult professions. Kids can dress up as firefighters, fast food workers, construction workers, veterinarians, radio broadcasters, and more while immersing themselves in actual activities of their chosen job. Also, they can earn KidZos,
Kidzania’s own currency, when they work, and they get to decide if they want to spend it on goods and services around the city or save it in the bank. This helps them understand about career choices, and teaches them financial literacy at the same time.
Tucked in a corner at Bonifacio High Street, this recreational facility is a favorite among children. A 3-storey massive indoor playground, it promotes exercise and physical activity in a fun and safe environment for kids of all ages to play in. They get to develop motor and coordination skills as they jump on trampolines, climb endless stairs, crawl through tunnels, and slip on giant slides. Active Fun also offers Party Celebration packages for a variety of occasions. They can easily customize features, themes, and entertainment options for birthday parties, baptisms, graduation parties, and many more.
The Mind Museum
The Mind Museum has the distinction of being the first world-class science museum in the country. More than an educational experience, it’s the fun way to explore science with its popular attractions that visitors come back to again and again. The museum is divided into five main galleries: the Atom Gallery shows the world of the very small in terms of forces and particles; the Earth Gallery tells the story of our planet; the Life Gallery shows us the various habitats and organisms that surround us; the Universe Gallery indulges our fascination with outer space; and the Technology Gallery shows us how the tools we invented have evolved along with our humanity. Filled with interactive exhibits, 3D films, planetarium shows, and experiment demos, the museum keeps things interesting by hosting traveling exhibits such as “Dinosaurs Around the World” which features life-size creatures that use animatronics to bring them to life. There is also an outdoor Science in the Park beside Jollibee where kids can play.
Family time doesn’t always have to be a big production. Sometimes it means just chilling and relaxing at the mall — you can shop, eat, or catch a movie. Uptown Mall’s VIP cinemas are topnotch. You can get the full experience with reclining seats, while enjoying unlimited popcorn and drinks with butler service. Once the sun sets, a giant Vegas-style dancing fountain located at the front of the mall becomes the showpiece of the night. From 6pm onwards, kids and kids at heart can enjoy a Light and Fire Show that will keep you riveted with its dazzling visual display and upbeat sounds. The Uptown Tower also lights up at night with customized designs, similar to the Empire State Building in New York City.
Taguig Lakefront Community (TLC) Park is the city’s first community park. Since it opened in December 2014, locals have regularly flocked to it. There’s a basketball court for those who want to shoot some hoops. A bike path extends to the perimeter area in front of the park. Kids will enjoy feeding the fish in the koi pond, and playing in the mini sand bar. A Pixie Hollow themed area makes a great backdrop for cool selfies and groufies. An activity area holds free mini shows and performances. Visitors can even hop on a train as it takes them around the park. And the best part? Everything is free.
Flying Trapeze Philippines
If you used to dream of running away to the circus, and of flying through the air, then the Flying Trapeze may just be the thing for you. It’s the first and only one of its kind in the country, and all the equipment is provided by the best circus supplier in the world so you can be assured of your safety. Not only do you learn new skills, but you also get a good workout. Beginners are welcome; no prior skills required. Professional coaches are always on hand to guide and assist you. What better way to bond with the family than with a new adventure?
