Full description

Immerse yourself in the rich history of a meaningful WWII location in the Philippines. Join a guided day trip from Manila to the renowned Bataan province. Explore landmarks such as the Mount Samat National Shrine, the Bataan Surrender Site, and Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar.

Get picked up from your Manila accommodation and take in views of the countryside as you drive into the Bataan region. Notice the roadside memorial honoring the grueling Bataan Death March. Learn about this event, as well as the Bataan Peninsula's role during WWII, from your tour guide. Arrive at Mount Samat to visit the National Shrine, erected as a monument to the struggles and sacrifices of the soldiers who fought there. Step into the museum to sense the fury, fear, defeat, and humiliation experienced by the troops after their surrender.

Up next, admire panoramic views of the vast countryside from an observation deck inside the tallest cross in the Philippines. Discover the Bataan Surrender Site, where the exhausted, sick and starving soldiers surrendered to the Japanese on April 9, 1942. Before heading back to Manila, enjoy a guided tour inside Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar. Walk across villages and ancestral homes, all filled with centuries of history.
