oo nga sis, parang yun dalawa lang muna mapuntahan namin tas gala gala nalang sa vicinity. sayang nga eh, may tree top adventure pa. saka iniisip nga namin, hindi kami makakagimik/makakapag night life dahil walang bantay si dion, haha! kinoconsider pa namin kung magsasama kami ng isa pang adult.

by the way sis, may isa pa akong nakita, Subic International Hotel P2,500 lang yun Bravo Deluxe Room nila, naka promo ata sabi sa email. may feedback ka ba dun? malapit lang kaya yun? ang sabi sa website nila, "ideally located in the heart of Subic Bay Freeport Zone." address ata nila: Labitan & Sta Rita Roads, Freeport Zone Subic Bay, Olongapo City, Philippines 
eto yun website nila: http://subichotel.com/accomodations/

tatawagan ko sila tomorrow, para makapagbook na. nakakapagod na din kase magresearch haha.

hindi ko pa natry magstay dun sa Subic International Hotel, but yes, nasa gitna nga siya. hehe yung pool malapit dyan ako tumatambay pag feel ko magswimming nun :) di ko lang masabi kung maganda pa rin. medyo matagal na kasi yang Subic International Hotel. parang isa siya sa mga unang hotel sa Subic nun. elem pa lang tayo, meron na yan (magka-age tayo halos sis!) di ko lang sure kung naupdate na nila yung mga amenities nila. pero dati, pag may mga artista na pumupunta ng Subic, usually dyan naka-billet.

..We went to Subic last Dec and we booked Subic Park Hotel as recommended by sis Vanenie (thank you sis)..small but very cozy place, may swimming pool and walking distance lang if you want to exp the night life and near din sa Puregold and Royal Duty free.....nagustuhan ni hubby ang place..

Zoobic Safari entrance fee is around P400+++ pero hindi na enjoy ni hubby dahil sa init?? or sobra taas ng expectation niya..while my teen daughter naman nakapunta na kasi dati nun nag fieldtrip nila pero sa butterfly sila nagpunta nun or mas advisable ata eto pag fieldtrip..na enjoy lang namin yun actual feeding sa tiger while inside the jeep tapos tatalon ang tiger sa taas ng jeep (may takot effect)..wala bayad ang 2 year old son ko sa Zoobic Safari..parang overrated ang Zoobic Safari or hindi worth ang P400 kasi ang Camel lang yata ang nakita ko na animals na di ko nakikita sa mga zoo dito sa Manila..although maganda din yun milk feeding sa mga baby sheep and free makalaro ng mga kids...sina hubby and teen daughter inip na inip at gusto na matapos ang trip..parang most of the trip eh nasa car lang kami waiting na matapos and we proceed to the next place...may kasabay kami na nag stay lang din sa car..ha ha..

...mas na enjoy or worth ang entrance sa Ocean Adventure around P500 (forgot ko na exact amount)..we also saw Gladys Reyes and Christopher (hubby) and kids there..nakasabay namin sa Whale presentation and Sea Lion show..nakakaawa din sila kasi pinagkaguluhan as in maya't maya may magpapapicture..parang naisip ko wala na ba sila karapatan mag relax..he he..eh that time may nakasabay pa kami na nag field trip sympre dami nagpapicture sa kanila..

..worth ang travel via SCTEX...eto talaga na enjoy namin ang nature and yun ease ng travel..tuwang tuwa si Gelo sa mga nakikita niya and also my teen daughter enjoyed the travel...
 
..and sympre enjoy ang shopping..mas gusto ko ang Puregold over Royal duty free mas madami and bago mga selection pero pag perfume sa Royal pa din...nakabili si daughter ng Mossimo na shorts for P300 lang ang ganda sa Puregold..on our way home nakabili kami ng rubber shoes sa Pampanga Stop Over and yun design kasi na nabili namin di ko nakita sa malls dito sa Manila and 50% off sila...

Thanks sa reviews mommy onie. we'll drop by at subic this March for miggy's birthday. Di na kasi tuloy ang party dahil hindi ko kayang pagsabayin ang preschool applications niya at birthday preparations. :D

Kung sobrang init sa Zoobic, di na kami pupunta kasi kamusta naman ang araw around March? Di uubra ang sunblock.

DocEon:


At least 2hours for ocean adventure. There are four attractions/show namely Walk on the Wild Side, Dolphin Friends Show, Sea Lion Marine Patrol Show, and Adventures of Olongapo Jones. Upon entry, binigyan kami ng flyer na may "schedule" kung alin yung mauunang show para sa amin depende sa kung anong oras ka pumasok.

Dumating kami 11 AM, naka-mark na #1 yun Olongapo Jones, pero nun andun kami, parang hindi masyado type ng son ko yun mga mascots na animals. Na-amaze lang sya sandali sa acrobats na talon nang talon pero other than that, nag aaya na sya maglakad. From the theater, natatanaw yun El Capitan Theater, yung theater for Dolphin Friends Show, eh sa sked namin, #4 pa sya at 1:15 PM. Pero nakasulat dun na may viewing ng 11:45 AM. Eh since nakikita namin na nagpupuntahan na yun ibang nagfield trip dun, nag assume kami na malapit na magstart kaya pumunta na din kami, para may maganda kaming seats.

So hindi na talaga namin sinunod yun sked na binigay sa amin. Nagskip nalang kami dun sa tingin namin interesting sa son ko. After that, nag sea lions kami, then pumasok kami sa Aquarium, ala Manila Ocean Park ang dating. Tas hindi na kami nakapunta sa Walk on the Wild Side kase sa mga nakita naming pics, parang magdidiscuss lang ata dun ng mga animals ala Kuya Kim (not sure), eh since pupunta naman kami ng Zoobic, hindi na kami pumunta dun.

Tas naglunch na din kami sa may parang cafeteria sa loob ng Ocean Adventure. Syempre pahinga konti, around 2 PM nasa Zoobic na kami.



Mommy France:


I suggest kung gusto mo talaga pumunta sa Zoobic pero hindi masyadong mainit, afternoon kayo pumunta. Like sa amin, around 2-2:30PM kami andun, pero pinaghintay pa kami para mapuno yun group namin sa tour. Siguro 3 na kami nagstart sa tour.

Mapuno naman sa Zoobic kaya hindi naman tirik talaga yun araw. Or siguro dahil December kami pumunta kaya medyo malamig lamig yun hangin. Though nakakapawis talaga yun tour dahil maglalakad ka talaga at konting sakay sa train/jeep.

This time, hindi na kami makapagskip. Hahaha! May mga areas kase na hindi pala interesting (like Forbidden cave na puro preserved animals lang naman). Tipong sana hindi nalang dinaanan. Syempre mas gusto namin yun main attractions na may live animals like Tiger Close Encounter, Croco Loco at Tiger Safari Ride. Pero masaya din yun Animal parade. Yun sa mga cave yun hindi masayado interesting.

Sharing some photos na hindi naman tirik yun araw sa afternoon.






Generally, nag enjoy yun son ko, as in pag pinakwento mo sa kanya yun Subic, ikwento naman niya yun mga nakita niya. Ang alam ko may Zoobic Night Safari din, nakikita ko kase sa mga tarp sa Zoobic. Hanap ka nalang siguro ng reviews online. Ang haba din kase ng byahe, 4-5 hours din. So sayang naman kung Ocean Adventure lang ang papasyalan sa Subic.

helo sissies! Im residing here in Subic Bay, tama sabi ni sis Vanenie the best f you will stay in the Central Business District lang (ibaba) kase everything is accesible. If you want mga sisiies na magandaang place i highly recommend The Villas, maganda talaga ang place ang the pool is good too especially for those who have little ones. Im sure mag enjoy ang mga tots sa pool kase meron talaga pambata and cozy ang place and the food is good din! Travelers Hotel is good too. Hotels here have special rates on week ends, mas mahal ng konti compared to week days. RK hotel is okay din cheaper sya kaya lang medyo malayo sa night life. The best mga sissies if you will stay in a hotel sa loob ng freeport for you to really have a quite vacation far from the noisy streets of Manila.

I suggest you bring your own car here because transportation is quite hard, halos walang public transpo dito sa loob ng freeport kung meron man very very expensive at ang hirap hagilapin.

You can PM me mga sissies if confirmed na that you will be coming here, il help you with your itinerary. Ocean Adventure and Zoobic Safari has discounts din from time to time. Try nyo din Tree Top adventure, its fun and exciting!

@angel_cleopatra :hi sis! Johan's Beach Resort is between Subic town and Olongapo na po bale hindi na po sya sa loob ng freeport. if you plan to visit ocean adventure or zoobic safari sobrang malayo na po yon sis. Im not quite familiar po sa mga galaan sa area na yon.

@DocEon:Hi sis, i called Ocean Adventure for possible promos  but sad to say they dont have any as of this time so you have have to pay for their regular admission and so with the Tree Top Adventure. They have an all-in tickets which costs 1,120 per head, that includes Canopy Tour (350), Silver Surfer (250), Superman Ride (200), Tree Drop (150), Trekking (100), Inter-Active free Fall (250), enclosed in parenthesis are their rates for each particular activity in case you dont want to book for an all-in. It will take 3 to 4 hours to finish all of the activities. I suggest sis pareserve kana so that you dont have to wait kase marami talaga tao pag long weekend.

Sis, have you booked for a hotel already? If you want sis, you can rent a house, you can cook their at meron din swimming pool. Its very economical.
