I finally found a Day Tour escapade ideal for the family which entails fun and learning for the kids. We traveled around the world — with no passport required, low budget requirement and you can tour the iconic places in the world in just 100 minutes! Impossible? Read more to know HOW⤵️
I learned about this resort on Facebook, it suddenly appeared on my newsfeed and I instantly fell in love. We decided to celebrate my son Conan’s 3rd birthday at a low budget resort but at a place that will leave a remarkable memory, we traveled to Torres Farm and Resort, which to our surprise was only less than an hour drive from us (General Trias), and only 1-hour and 30 minutes for those of our friends who came from Manila via public transport. The accessibility of the place made us more excited to explore the place.
Torres Farm and Resort was originally a 14-hectare mango farm. Wherein the very accommodating owners, Mr. Frederick and Anna Baylosis resides. The idea started when the couple decided to have their own private pool, then little by little they enhanced the idea of creating replicas of the iconic places of the world. Then just 2 years ago opened the place to the public. I was amazed by the humbleness of its owners and their hearts generosity of sharing their humble place to the people of Cavite & all others who want “to view the world” at a low-entrance fee rates.
Upon arrival, we were ushered to the office of the Resort, and were given wrist tags as a proof of paying the entrance fees.
The entrance fees are as follows:
- Adult – P180
- Kids (4ft. below) – P120
You will be reminded of some simple rules posted on the wall outside the office.
Travel the world in 100 minutes!
→ The 100-minute travel challenge applies to the traveling time from Manila to Naic
→ You can also tour the place in 100 minutes or more depending on your love for IG feed, and of course, photo shoot is so hard to refuse in this place
Let’s Start Our Virtual Tour ⤵️
Easily recognized around the world is the famous Santorini of Greece. The rendition of Torres Farm, its white and blue colored structure gave dignity to the real Santorini. This has been an inspiration of the Function Room found at the Torres Farm and Resort – Greece Theme. We spotted a wedding celebration during our stay at the resort and it can cater quite a number of guests as well as its car parking space can accommodate at least 20 to 50 cars.
GREAT PYRAMID OF GIZA IN EGYPT
The Egyptian pyramids are ancient pyramid-shaped masonry structures located in Egypt. Built during the time when Egypt was one of the richest and most powerful civilizations in the world. – http://www.history.com. The Great Pyramid of Giza is the most likely to be replicated because it is the oldest and the largest of the three pyramids found in El Giza, Egypt. Now, you don’t have to go to Egypt to experience the aura of the Pyramid era, just drop by here at the Egypt Theme.
Remember to make fun photos with your family when you visit the Pyramid of Egypt.
The Merlion is the mythical symbol of Singapore and it has the head of a lion and the body of a fish. Tourists flock at the Merlion and is one of the most popular attraction in Singapore.
