The Garden at Philippine Arena for Your Family Weekend

Posted on Posted in Destinations, Luzon, Philippines, Tourist Attractions, Uncategorized

The Garden beside the world famous Philippine Arena is gradually gaining its place as a local attraction for Filipino families. Your baby boomer dad or your iGen pamangkin and you millennial Tita would sure have a thing to enjoy at The Garden. You don’t know what that is, but let’s!

Glass Dome

This is like a mini Flower Dome of Singapore. It is cool here inside literally and figuratively.  Flowers are at their full bloom it could take over your mood.

Cactus Island

We may like flowers but we all want to love a cactus, don’t we? Get the courage to hug a cactus today. Of course, that’s a metaphor.

There are also other spots in The Garden that would bring out the kid in anyone.

And the romantic gazebo that could bring out the lover in you.

Japanese Garden

Japanese gardens are known for stone works, waterfalls and ponds. A bridge where you can look over school of Koi suggests expansiveness to the whole place. A little zen garden gives you the feeling of tranquility but no time for being calm since the whole place is waiting for you to discover, lol.

When the sun sets, colorful lights will brighten up to what look likes a dojo. You can’t help but notice the dry landscapes. Bonsai art could not be missing in a Japanese garden.

Embrace Cafe

Embrace Cafe and Restaurant serves rice meals, pasta, desserts, and signature frappes. Something that would melt your heart here are the Deaf community that serves your food. You may want to learn how to say thank you in Sign.

The Garden Philippine Arena

My parents loved the 4 Kinds of mushroom worth P180 good for the three of us. It is really tasteful and I can barely taste artificial food flavoring. The natural flavorings are more eminent in the dish. The platter of rice is worth P120. A total of P300 is enough for the three of us and we were really full.

Other Spots

Every spot in The Garden is picturesque that every step you take has an awesome background.

You can take selfies all day until you get haggard, lol.
