Tour Around the World at MERALCO Liwanag Park

Manila Electric Company, MERALCO, opened their doors again to Filipino families as they let them step inside their compound at Meralco Center, Ortigas Avenue, Pasig City to tour around Liwanag Park this holiday season. 
This year, MERALCO will let each member of the family take a glimpse of the famous landmark of different countries that are strategically placed inside Liwanag Park.

Liwanag Park has five areas where different attractions specially made by MERALCO for  Filipinos are placed.

Upon entering the park, enchanting trees with white lights will welcome their guests.

To reach the fifth area guests should ride  Meralco’s shuttle. The shuttle will lead the guests to Meralco’s Robots that looks like the robots in the movie Transformers. Along with the robots is the famous Meralco machine that their employees use when they fix electricity lines. This time, instead of using the machine to fix or check the electricity lines, the machine will lift the guests high above the air so that they will see the whole Liwanag Park and Meralco Compound.
