  • This place is deeply rooted in Philippine history. I personally think its more than its World War character. The island itself has more to offer than site seeing ruins. I must return for eco-tourism a...  read more »

  • It's hard to imagine this beautiful island once was a major battleground during WWII. Scattered about are the remnants of barracks, assorted buildings, and armament. The scars of war are quite evident. Huge cannons thrown hundreds of yards from it's pedestal lie undisturbed, in the exact position when the attacks occurred. Time really has stopped and history is quite palpable. Truly amazing.
  • Ganda dto lalo n pag nka bike.. Un nga lng mhl ng sprite n mbbili lng ng 8pesos. .pero dto s lugar n to 47pesos wow........
  • A really fascinating piece of history and a highlight of a trip to Manila. The original buildings are still there - as are many of the guns. You get a good sense of the history because most of the island has not changed since WWII. The guided tours are excellent.
  • A full day of activities on this historical island. I heard that Japanese tourists get a separate tour due to the... umm.. sensitivity surrounding the WWII events.
  • What an unbelievable historical gem is this island. Few places known to WWII focus was at the forefront so prominently at the beginning of the war and then at the end. It is said to be the most well preserved battlefield of the war. After having visited twice and spent a total of 5 days here, I can tell you it lives up to the reputation. This islands holdouts, along with the "Battling Bastards of Bataan" slowed the Imperial Japanese assault and saved Australia from the Japanese advance. You will see gun emplacements, memorials, historical ruins, and other attractions too numerous to name. An overnight (or 2) stay is HIGHLY recommended, although, at least do the day tour if you are pressed for time. This place is worth every minute of your time. And don't worry, even someone not into military history will be blown away by the magnitude of the history that is the "Island Fortress of Corregidor".
