About This Blog
Flight chronicles of the backpacker Tutubi, with travelogues, pictures/photos/videos, travel guides, independent and honest reviews, affordable, recommended resorts and hotels (including inns, guesthouses, pension houses, lodges, hostels, condotels, bed and breakfast and other cheap accommodations), commuting guides, routes (sometimes street maps and GPS coordinates/waypoints) and driving directions to answer "how to get there" questions, information and tips on tourism, budget travel and living in Philippines, Exotic Asia and beyond!

Backpacking, independent travel, and flashpacking are cheaper than the "cheapest package tours" and promotional offers around but you can also use travel information for family vacations, even romantic honeymoon destinations.

More than the usual tourist spots and "places to see," this blog advocates heritage conservation, environmental protection, and history awareness for Filipinos, foreigners, and ex-pats wishing to explore Paradise Philippines and Exotic Asia!

    How to Get to Manila Zoo: Entrance Fee, Map, Commute, Directions

    Just to answer a question on some commenters asking "how to get to Manila Zoo" on Tutubi's other posts, instead of answering endlessly on the post, these directions and How-to will more than suffice. Please read thoroughly before asking and hitting the comments, most commenters though are too lazy tor read and ask questions with answers already present on the blog post if only they bothered to read.

    the resident and lonely elephant Mali, about 40 years old which gained fame due to being alone for many years now

    Manila Zoo Entrance Fee, Admission prices:

    Adults: PhP100.00/head
    Children below 4 feet in Height: PhP60.00
    Children 2 years old and below: PhP60.00
    Residents of Manila with valid ID: PhP50.00

    How to get to Manila Zoo:

    How to commute to Manila Zoo:

    Via LRT 1, the nearest station is Quirino Avenue where you can actually walk westward (towards Baywalk) about 300 meters. From MRT, you can get there via MRT Taft Avenue Station (or North Avenue Station in the future). From LRT 2, you can transfer to LRT 1 at Recto Station then connect to LRT Doroteo Jose station.

    Jeepneys from Quezon City passing by Espana and Quiapo, take jeepneys with sighboard Harrisson/Vito Cruz and Mabini. Just request the driver to drop you off in front. This is the same for jeepneys on Rizal Avenue (Avenida) and Sta. Cruz.

    From Baclaran, you can take the LRT and get off at Quirino Avenue station or better, just ride a jeep to Quiapo/Sta. Cruz/Divisoria with Mabini on the signboard (never the ones with Taft as they don't pass by in front of the zoo)

    Driving directions to Manila Zoo:

    From Makati (or those from Laguna, Batangas, Quezon Province, take SLEX), you can drive down to Osmena Highway, left to Quirino Avenue then left to Adriatico Street (landmark: children's playground or formerly Paraiso ng Batang Maynila) where you can see Manila Zoo on your right. There's lots of parking spaces there (no idea on parking fees though). Beside Manila Zoo is Harrison Plaza

    From Cavite, head towards Aguinaldo Highway, Manila-Cavite Expressway Roxas Boulevard then turn right to Quirino Avenue (landmark: Ospital ng Maynila) then right to Adriatico to Manila Zoo entrance gate and parking.

    From Quezon City, Caloocan, Malabon and Navotas, best to go there via Radial Road, Delpan Bridge then Roxas Boulevard, left to Quirino Avenue then right to Adriatico.

    Manila Zoo:
    Entrance Fee/Admission Prices/Tickets: PhP100.00 (PhP60.00 children below 4 ft in height). Fifty percent discount for Manila residents with valid IDs.
    Address: Quirino Avenue corner M. Adiatico St. Manila
    Telephone Number: +632.400.1884;
    Zoo Hours: 8am to 5pm daily (no information if they're open in Holy Week, particularly on Holy Thursday, Good Friday, Black Saturday and Easter Sunday. They're open on Christmas day and New Years Day and probably other holidays)

    Kinder Zoo:

    all in rate: PhP250.00
    Entrance fee: P100.00

    zipline, wall climbing

    Boat ride: PhP60.00/boat for 30 minutes (up to 5 persons/boat)

    some animals to be seen in Manila Zoo:
