Las Farolas, The FISH World - Part 2

Two days after the anticipated inaugural, we had the chance to see this one of a kind aquatic world. My husband and I along with our three children headed to Las Farolas to experience how it is to be inside the so called labyrinth-like fish museum with mysterious pathways.

Pye paid for our admission fees : 2 adults for  P800.00 and 3 discounted student-rates for P900, a total of P1,700.00 for an exciting tour inside the amusement center that showcases ornamental freshwater fishes bred from captivity to prevent some species from extinction due to natural adversity and indiscriminate human acts.

As we enter the oceanarium, we were welcomed by friendly usherettes. According to them, we're the second group of visitors who came that morning of April 26.

This latest attraction in Pasig City opens up a whole new world for general public to enjoy. It is envisioned to be a tourist destination. It can definitely captivate the hearts of local or foreign travelers.


We were allowed to take pictures inside using only cameras without flash. Good for us, we brought along our iPad 3 and these are the awesome shots my daughter Lizette had captured.

Once you set feet on its interior grounds, you will be amazed with the world-class design. Lagoons are situated at the center of 2 two-story hubs and around them are aquarium tanks displaying the wealth of aquatic resources... freshwater fishes coming from different continents of the world.

We were privileged to meet the Chief Operating Officer of Las Farolas in the person of MR. BERNIE JALANDONI REPALBOR.  He even accommodated my request of taking a photo with him.

  7. All along I thought that Las Farolas offered Free Admission. =P It's quite expensive still. Anyway, the first thing that came into mind when I read and saw the photos was Ocean Park. Is it comparable though?
