Christmas is just around the corner and that means bringing your kids to place where they can enjoy and play and have lots of fun. For most of us Filipinos, going to theme parks are the best way to treat our kids. Some of the most popular theme parks in the Philippines are Enchanted Kingdom and Star City.
For those who have no extra time traveling to Enchanted Kingdom in Sta. Rosa, Laguna or those on a tight budget that can’t fit the 200 Pesos entrance fee of Star City in Pasay, one of the best alternatives is to go to SM Mall of Asia and have your kids see the tallest Ferris Wheel in the Philippines and get to ride different affordable rides at the SM MOA Theme Park.
