Clean and well-maintained place. Better than Arlington, USA. Nice place to visit and especially if it is a guided tour.

It's a beautiful and quiet place to escape from noisy Manila and relax for few hours. And if you are lucky you can also enjoy cool breeze while you walking around.

After visiting other WW2 sites in the Philippines, it seemed fitting to attend the final resting place for the many brave people who have fought and sadly paid the ultimate price.

Beautiful, peaceful place in the heart of a bustling city. Very well maintained. It's good to remember the sacrifices made for us, and this is a fitting memorial.

I thought it was just a nice place to walk around, but it was surprisingly cooling and nice to hang around just to understand the pieces of history information displayed.

This cemetery is one of the main international WWII memorials to the men and women in the American services who died in the Pacific region. It is a beautiful, peaceful and well maintained park located in the Fort Bonifacio district of Metro Manila. There are several acres of crosses as well as a marble portico with the names of the...
