  8. I haven't been to Subic yet. But if I had to pick one attraction, I'd go for the Zoobic Safari. Never been up close with tigers before! The mirror maze looks tempting though. Ugh, I can't decide. Thanks for this list though! I'm gearing up and planning my trips next year to make it easier for me. So, this helps a lot!

  9. These are some really nice parks to visit with your children. I am against zoos though and I believe that animals should be allowed to live in their natural habitat, in freedom. The tree top adventure sounds like a lot of fun, it would be my favorite to visit.
