DREAMPLAY by DREAMWORKS (A Review): 11 Tips for Planning your DreamPlay Date with your Kids! @CityofDreamsPH

Instagram

Dreamworks Dreamplay-8.jpg
DreamPlay is a DreamWorks movie-inspired creativity play center for kids located indoors inside City of Dreams Manila.

I like that the attractions stimulate the minds of the kids and challenge their creativity. The activities are interactive, like workshop classes and exercise activities for your little ones. 

Although, some say the entrance fee isn't worth it, considering how relatively small the place is, with limited attractions you can finish in two hours. Others comment that it's just an interactive day care where parents, who want to spend more time in the casino, can drop off their kids.

We tried it first hand with the boys and their cousins, and here's our planning guide and review of DreamPlay by DreamWorks...

Taal VolcanoTaal Volcano is an island within a lake, on an island within a lake, on an island! Did you get that? :P

Just an hour away from Manila, this geological wonder is the smallest active volcano in the world. But despite being famous and all, we found that most Filipinos have a hard time locating the actual Crater Lake itself--So we had to figure out the reason for ourselves. Check out Team OAP’s video on debunking the mystery of Taal Volcano...

KAAMULAN Festival: Why is it hailed as the Most Authentic Festival in the Philippines?

Instagram

Kaamulan Festival Centennary 2014-43.jpg

The KAAMULAN FESTIVAL is an annual fiesta of the 7 Ethnic Tribes in Bukidnon -- the Matigsalug, Tigwahanun, Higaunu, Umayamnun, Manobo, Bukidnon, and Talaandig. It is a cultural celebration of the tribes' legendary stories, ancient rituals, ethnic music, and traditional dances.

The fiesta is usually held in March, but it was moved to September this year to coincide with the Centennial Celebration of the province of Bukidnon, which was founded on September 1, 1914.

I was curious to experience it because George Tapan called it one of the best and most authentic fiestas in the Philippines. 

Here's a photo essay of my first ever Kaamulan experience in Malaybalay, Bukidnon...

(I'm interested to see how tourists see Manila so I asked Travel Blogger Milda of Asia Rooms to do a guest post in OAP about "A Tourist's View of Things To Do in Manila" - Anton)

Previously seen as nothing more than a sprawling "concrete jungle", Manila was typically regarded as a layover stop for tourists before they moved on to other Philippine destinations. However, in recent years Manila has grown popularity as a destination in its own right.  Manila city, which is located in the metropolitan region of the same name, has bloomed into a colourful and vibrant holiday location, now attracting backpackers and holidaymakers from far and wide.  This is partly due to the city’s vast and unique districts, each with its own history, culture and cuisine. 

Whether you've just booked your first trip to Manila, or you're researching fun and exotic Asian destinations for your next vacation, this guide will explain what there is to do during your stay in the Philippines' capital city.  

Here are four fabulous things to do in Manila during your stay:
