The Manila Zoo is set to reopen its doors to the public today, Monday.
In a video, the Manila Public Information Office gave a glimpse of what to expect from the renovated tourist attraction.
Located on M. Adriatico Street in Malate, Manila Zoo will be open daily from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tickets may be bought through https://www.manilazoo.ph.
Also called the Manila Zoological and Botanical Garden, it will feature animals and plants that will be of additional knowledge to visitors, especially children, in a more visually appealing setting.
Entrance costs P150 for Manila residents. Those residing outside the city, meanwhile, would have to pay P300. There’s a P100 off discount for students, and kids below two years old get in for free.
The entrance fee has gone a bit higher than previous operations. Manila Mayor Honey Lacuna’s office said this is for the zoo’s maintenance.
Since the fee is higher for non-Manila residents, the city government said the extra pay will be “worth it” as the zoo can now compete with others worldwide.
