Places to See

“Places to See” features the field trips we’ve taken for our homeschool and R&R. The words in italics are the subjects we covered for each location (feel free to use in other subjects if applicable). A simple Google search will give you a lot of information you’ll need to get to these places. I’ve linked the posts I’ve written for some of the places we’ve been to. I’m working on the others and will post as they become available.  I hope the information I share will help you with your travel planning and homeschooling.

National Museum – the National Art Gallery – art museum and gallery (Pre-colonial and Colonial History, Art)

Butterfly Garden Pasig

Pasig Rainforest Park – lots of trees, a flower nursery and a zoo. Our go-to place to look for local plants, flowers and animals. (Science)


Pasig City Library – the homeschooler’s best friend, next to the Internet and computing machines. (General Information, History)

Pasig City Museum – full of historical exhibits and art from local or city artists. The exhibits describe the history of Pasig, the name of the major river that forms the heart of Metro Manila and the city itself. (History, Politics, Culture)

Immaculate Conception Parish Church – one of the oldest churches in the city. It managed to survive the inroads of urbanism but the facade of the church has been modified. Despite that, much of the original Spanish architecture can still be seen. (History, Art, Religion)

and because the Beloved comes from the Zambales area, we’ve also been to these places:

Olongapo City Museum – shows exhibits telling the history of Olongapo City – the city grew to support the naval and military base of the US – from the origins of the name “Olongapo” to the eruption of Mt. Pinatubo and beyond that. (History, Science, Economics, Politics, Culture, Art)

Old Spanish Gate – the remains of the old Spanish fortress where the Subic Bay US Naval Base was built. (Military History, Art)

Subic Bay Freeport Zone Pier – you can watch the ships come in, commercial, private and military and see how they work. (Social Studies, Economics, Math)
