Pasig City: Ark Avilon Zoo

Located in Frontera Verde in Pasig City, Ark Avilon Zoo is an interactive indoor zoo that is famously known for its Noah's Ark themed facade.

Ark Avilon Zoo boasts its "star-studded" line up of friendly animals. These animal celebrities are: Ayla the Palawan bearcat, Alex and Nardo the cockatoos, Andy and Mercy the penguins, Busty the pony, Krusty the donkey, Tyson the Burmese python and last but definitely not the least Jenny the Bornean orangutan. Visitors could interact and have a picture taken with these "celebrities" at a given price though. These animals are spread out in the different parts of the two-storey zoo.
Nice architectural design
It really is an ark!

Aside from the said animals you could also see other animals in the zoo. They however can't be interacted with and is only for viewing purposes. These animals are; the tortoise, lion, tiger, marmoset, lemurs and some different species of birds. 
I spy Guinea Pigs
Feed them rabbits!!!
Feed them fishes!!!
Visitors would also enjoy the Farmland Feeding Station where visitors could feed farm animals like rabbits, sheep, goats guinea pigs and even a pony. You have to buy the food though.

Here's what your kids could see in Ark Avilon Zoo:

I visited Ark Avilon Zoo during the outbound education (field trip) of my class. I have observed that my students truly enjoyed their time in the zoo. I think interacting with the animals is way better than just watching them. I personally enjoyed feeding the farm animals.

Overall, Ark Avilon Zoo is the best place to bring your children for some hands on learning. It is also a good place to conduct a field trip for grade school kids.

Getting there:
From Manila, ride the LRT going to Baclaran. Board down at EDSA Station and transfer to MRT going to Shaw Boulevard Station. 

Walk to EDSA Central Jeep Terminal and ride a jeepney to Ugong, Pasig. Board down at Tiendesitas and walk to Ark Avilon Zoo.
