This complex is a very impressive tribute to those that fell during battle in the pacific. I believe it is the largest cemetery for American servicemen outside of America. It is a serene place within the busy city which you can freely wander around, it provides detailed drawings in mosaic form of the battles and campaigns of WWII. A great... More

Need a break away from the city noise, traffic and to fulfill the need for meditation then this is a wonderful place. Just a 10 to 15 min walk from area known as The Fort at 26th str near McDonalds and Max Restaurant, you'll enjoy the peacefulness and breathtaking skyline vistas of the surrounding bldgs.

The American Memorial gave me a glimpse of its sacredness & heroism..the serene & cool ambiance,the tombstones that stood proud yet peaceful..the walls that immortalized the love for freedom,why is it that only high ranking deceased officials were decorated with the "purple heart"? gonna come back again to this sacred ground...,be proud! hail to Filipino valiant soldiers too.

Beautifully manicured lawns in one of Manila's very very few open spaces, and an area meticulously groomed and organised - it really feels a long way from the rest of Manila. This is the resting place of US and Filipino army, coastguard, navy and air force personnel, the majority of whom are technically missing in Acton, meaning their remains have... More

Seventeen thousand two-hundred and six Americans have their eternal rest within this not-huge but moving site. Its pristine condition – green hills punctuated by waves of crosses and 160 Stars of David – affords a starling contrast to the bustle and occasional decay of Manila.
