I booked our tickets with Klook since it is cheaper and with Klook I can use may earned points to redeem this activity. It was my second time here and I am proud to let my cousin & niece from abroad see these "Art in Island" here in Manila. Our date was on weekday afternoon and we were lucky that there were only a few people inside. She enjoyed the museum & the light show. I was just the photographer noting to shot the best angle with the arrowed tips on the floor.
Thanks Klook...till next time 😊
Very beautiful set up and must visit if you are in Philippine. Just next to Mall of Asia Manila Bay Pasay. Prepare a lot of camera or phone memory space for instagram photo. A lot of corner for photography plus to understand the knowledge of 11 regions of Filipino you may not know. Highly recommended!
For tourists, Manila is often just a stopover between flights on the way to another destination.
If you have a short time to spare in the metro, why not visit this IG-worthy museum that allows you to travel and experience 11 Regions of the Philippines without having to leave Manila?
Lakbay Museo offers 14 unique experiences in 11 different destinations and lets you travel to Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao and get to know more about Philippine history and culture without having to spend days of traveling and a lot of money.
we had a great time at Art in Island. there were a lot more rooms and murals than we expected!!
the Higawa room was lovely but we probably could have passed it. the general exhibitions were already amazing. I liked that it had some exhibitions of Filipino scenes. I also liked that you couldn't find the same art elsewhere, they are painted by local artists making it a uniquely Manila experience!
we didn't have a chance to stop but we passed by a little alley behind art in island that seemed to have lots of arty stores and cool restaurants to make your visit even better. I'd highly recommend!
Thanks Klook! another way to experience Manila... Good thing in klook no need for lines!!! literally.... no papers no lines at all.... when we get there just present digital voucher then proceed immediately 😄😄😄😄 that's great! Always use klook for convenience.. and most likely discounted prices 😍😍😍😍😍
Definitely a must see attraction in Manila. You get to learn about Filipino culture and heritage and promote the tourists destinations in the Philippines. You get to explore Luzon, Vizayas and Mindanao without leaving the metro. It's also a nice way to bond with family. They have interactive exhibits plus you get to taste some of the Filipino food and drinks.
