For a typical weekday, most office hours start at 8 o’clock in the morning. At the same hour, in a Saturday morning, the sun welcomed me to the windy Tagaytay City. I’m gonna meet animals! Yes, a bunch of wonderful animals!
Spending a day or two to travel and explore distant places, far from daily paperworks and client engagements, help us feel refreshed. At least, our mind rests from rush works, strict deadlines and everyday heavy traffic in the metro.
The Residence Inn Zoo offers a unique experience with both nature and animals. Kids and adults would truly love the experience with awesome creatures from all around the globe.
Birds come with different sizes and colors. It’s nice to stare at them moving inside their cage as if they are the stars of the whole zoo. They are so cute but remember neither to tickle nor tease them because they might think you’re going to grab them. J
But wait, there’s a spot where you can feed the hungry birds!
I actually had an encounter with one so cute bird!
Snakes! Spiders! Your knees might tremble while heading towards the Serpentarium but there’s nothing to worry. Snakes and spiders are scary creatures so they are highly secured in thick glass home. Their home is also child-friendly.
The encounter with the animals is a precious moment. The usual home pets are dogs, cats, love birds and gold fish. Here, the animals are those we don’t usually see. Aside from animal encounters, the zoo is surrounded with trivia about the animals.
Hey, turtle! How about giving me a cowabongga kick!
Here’s Aslan! This white lion was too lazy to entertain the guests. I suppose he was tired and sleepy. I need to zoom the camera to get a nice selfie photo of the king of the jungle! Roarrrr!
There’s an animal show at 11am. While sitting pretty at the theater-like seats, talented animals showcase their talents. Guest volunteers are able to touch the amazing animals such like cute parrots, lively lizard, hairy tarantula spider and weighty yellow snake!
I think this creature from the Middle East won’t get tired of chewing. He’s so prepared with the selfie shot.
WARNING. Meeting these animals can cause kids (and adults too!) to miss them. The zoo has thought of that already so they put a Zoovenir Shop! Huggable and lovely animal stuff toys are available.
Don’t miss this zoo-per fun experience of watching tigers show off its might! The clawed huge cats are trained and tamed so that the guests can have a souvenir photo with them. Oh, don’t be surprised that this 2-year old tiger drinks fresh milk like a baby!
The Residence Inn is one of the strategic places where you can appreciate nature, meet beautiful animals and have fun. One more thing: Don’t miss the zipline!!!
