Summer is fast approaching and the weather can be tough in the Philippines. The summer heat and rays of the sun can be harsh for a child’s skin while playing outdoors. Moreover, this is the season wherein kids now have their days off at school and have all the time to have fun before the next school year starts. For those who have babysitting duties this summer, there is a place in town to bring the kids, whether a young child or a child at heart.
Okada Manila has opened its PLAY, short for “Purposeful Learning and Activities for the Young”, wherein kids can learn new things while having fun. It is an indoor fun facility where young kids and kids at heart can share a fun experience. PLAY offers play areas for guests one to 16 years old. These areas are actually “eight purpose-built play areas or neighborhoods” that cater to the fun and adventure they want to experience.
