This place is unbelievably peaceful and clean, thus making it highly commendable to be in your travel itinerary. It's not only built and opened for the remembrance, but it's also a place where one could learn more about the history of the Philippines. It's located in Taguig City and I am still sure that there was no jeepney passing by... More

This is one of my favorite places in Manila. It is a reminder of service and love for the US. It is also a reminder of the cost of war. It is a must see. And if you happen to be there over Memorial day weekend, call about planting flags. Awesome service.

A tranquil, well maintained memorial to history and those who played a part in making sure we live the lives we love. Smack dab in the middle of the new BGC urban development, this place stands as a testament to all our American friends who laid down their lives fighting for us all. Take a walk and take time to...

This place is an amazing tribute to both the American and local lives lost in Asia during World War II. The place is huge, well maintained, and will certainly make you reflect on what the greatest generation of Americans did to ensure our lives, liberty, and freedom. Depending on how interested you are it likely takes only 30 minutes to... More

This was a peaceful and beautiful place to spend a morning before the heat of the afternoon set in. If you like history, this is a very interesting place to visit.

It is green with lovely white marble crosses with trendy BGC skyline on one side and Mckinley Hill on the other side. It is flawlessly maintained .... Worth a visit when in Fort

Pay respects here. Come humbly with hat in hand and you will never forget this hallowed ground. Feel the soft breeze and noon day sun. Hear the carillon softly mark the passage of time, you have plenty as they have none left to give. Listen quietly and you may hear; Under the wide and starry sky Dig the grave and... More

This is a vast great well maintained green park in the Taguig/BGC area and worth visiting if you are in the area or appreciate green spaces. You will forget that you are in busy smoky Metro Manila.
