This place is adored by older Filipinos who miss their more simple, communal upbringings—assuming they’re from the provinces. The restaurant is great—my halo halo was superb—but I don’t have much else to praise highly. Many people enjoy the rafting experience, so be sure to visit...More

Would not advise it for kinder students as the museum has many delicate pieces and the waterfall restaurant is not safe for them. I think it would be best for Grade 5 students and up.
