It's my first time to visit this amazing zoo called Ark Avilon Zoo. I got to know of the existence of this zoo from the photos posted by my 'friends' in the internet. Residing from Paranaque and Cavite, I am not familiar with the directions of any place in the north so I parked my car at SM Mall of Asia, we had lunch then hailed a taxi cab. Read the directions to the taxi driver from my notepad stored in my Nokia N95.

The Ark Avilon Zoo is designed to look Ark from Noah's Ark

The white tiger's name is Claudia (written on a poster)

Feeding the carps at 30 pesos per cup of fish food, it's fun !

You have to supervise your children because some of the birds do bite !

Feeding the hamsters and rabbit with a carrot on a stick, P20 per carrot. Imagine the amount of veggies and fruits needed to feed all these creatures plus a number of tigers, bears, birds, sheeps, donkey, deers, crocs etc. P300 per head on entrance is acceptable to compensate for the maintenance of the place. What's really unique about Ark Avilon Zoo is that you get to interact with some of the animals, a far cry from the old and outdated Manila Zoo in Malate, Manila.

Farm Ranch is just besides Ark Avilon Zoo. It has kiddie rides and venues for your kid's parties. One particular ride is Space Quest which brings memories to the Buzz Lightyear's Astro Blasters in Hong Kong Disneyland.

Just across Farm Ranch is Tiendesitas which houses Antique shops and the Pet Village which consists of a number of pet shops and dog parlors for your pet dog. To cap the day we ate dinner at the food court section of Tiendesitas and we were treated with a cultural dance show from different ethnicities in the Philippines.

Ark Avilon Zoo, Farm Ranch and Tiendesitas are located at Ortigas Avenue, Pasig city near Eastwood city, Libis, Quezon City. cheers !
