Enjoyable emotional journey

I am so glad we came here, our dad was a POW in WW11, so it was quite emotional and very comprihensive in telling their story. Very easy to get to and worth a visit.

Well laid out and full of WWII memoirs. The guides made a good effort but lack the age and knowledge of old.

We met someone from the airport, Mang Rolly of Summertime tricycle driver, who patiently took us everywhere we wanted to go. And this is the first place, a historical visit about Palawan. They may say its boring looking and reading all the posted reminisce pictures of WW2, but not us, we spent almost an hour inside the museum, we used... More

The story is sad but very educational. Nice that they honor the dead through this memorial. This is part of the City tour.

they need to improve the place. Add more epitaphs to read.Our tour guide is awesome, he showed us the tunnel and told us the story behind this place. It would be nice if there will be a short reading about the place for the tourist to know.
