Looking for ideas on how to spend your free day or afternoon other than going to the mall and spend on gadgets? Why not visit a zoo. And not just any ordinary zoo but the largest one, the Avilon Zoo. To add,it  is just 2 hours away from Manila.Avilon Zoo has  the biggest collection of animals in the Philippines and also ranks in first in terms of land area!

While I am not yet ready for that wild African safari tours, why not visit a zoo to see in person wild animals that are uncommon in our country? Some would  oppose to the idea of going to a zoo to check on caged animals. In my own opinion, I don’t see anything wrong with that. Through the zoo (since not all of us can travel to Africa to experience the wildlife, isn’t it?), one becomes aware the importance of conservation and animal care. Some are visual learners that by witnessing firsthand animal behavior,moreover, interacting with them is one way for them to learn about these animals, what they look like, how they sound and what they do or what they eat. All these can never be understand fully in the 4 walls of the classroom. Isn’t it a fun learning approach ?

More than the educational benefits, going to the zoo allows family bonding , especially between parents and children or even partners. Who says zoo is only for children? It’s for grown-ups as well. Actually , it’s for everyone. Having a zoo date? Doesn’t it sound like an adventurous kind of date instead of doing the usual dinner or movie watching together with your partners?

In a zoo, you can have a picnic, walk around which is a good form of exercise, learn some few or queer facts about animals that you can talk about later, and a lot more. Research says that if you spend time with nature, by just seeing green scenery, listening to the sounds of the birds chirping or leaves of trees falling lower our stress from the hustle and bustle of daily life.

These are what I realized after my trip to Avilon Zoo. Price can be a little pricey for me but the zoo is really huge and they have a wide collection of animals which is worth it for me. Staying 3 hours in this zoo would be more than enough to see all the animals unless you ‘ll take your lunch there too or would like to prolong your time in every sections, then, it might take more than that. But if you can  devote whole day, why not?!
