Kuya Kim tours Tales of Illumina, IG-worthy attraction featuring Philippine mythology in QC

A new picturesque attraction featuring Philippine mythology has opened in Quezon City!

On Wednesday’s “24 Oras,” Kuya Kim explored Tales of Illumina, which features 36 Instagram-worthy spots inspired by elements of the country’s rich culture.

A talking tree named Dalakit welcomes guests to the magical forest-like place, which also displays renditions of the Ibong Adarna and Florante at Laura.

The museum showcases Philippine folklore creatures, such as the “kapre,” which lives in trees. Its name came from the Spanish word “cafre,” which means “non-believer.”

A three-headed dragon can also be seen inside the attraction. According to local mythology, we have two dragons who are believed to eat the moon and the sun. They are called Bakunawa and Minokawa, respectively.

According to its website, Tales of Illumina’s attractions that will look nice on guests’ social media feeds are Moon Magic, Whimsical Path, Spectrum, and Pearls of Joy.

“It’s all about the mythology of the Philippines. Of course, you’ll see a light show and performances. It’s a family-oriented place,” said Lawrence Li Tan, owner of Tales of Illumina.

Tales of Illumina is located at the second floor of Ever Commonwealth. Tickets are sold for as low as PHP799 on their website. – Franchesca Viernes/RC, GMA News
