A beautifully maintained and peaceful memorial to the American servicemen/women who died in the Manila conflict. A welcome respite from the frenetic Manila traffic and an important visiting place to understand the significance of America on the history of Manila and the Philippines.

I am so glad I made the effort to visit the Manila American Cemetery near Fort Bonifacio! My father had 3 friends loose the lives in the Asian theater during World War II. This is considered the most beautiful of American cemeteries outside of the...More

Beautiful grounds. For American veterans, this is a must see. Impressive display of grave-markers and story of the War in the Pacific. Pray that this never happens, again!

This is a very sobering place to visit to see the many rows of graves knowing that each headstone represents a young man and a devastated family. It is a very peaceful and calm setting surrounded by tall buildings and the chaos of Manila. It's...More

Better to book accommodation in Makati area. There are many serviced apartments near the Ayala Center (shopping, dining and entertainment area). I personally like the Somerset Olympia. They have spacious 2 and 3 bedroom suites complete with living and dining rooms with full kitchen which would be perfect for you. Some 3 bedroom suites even have 2 levels. Ayala Center is a short walk away. You can book the Corregidor Tour through Sun Cruises Philippines. There is a Tagaytay (Taal volcano)...More

If 10 days is the maximum length of your stay you don't have a great deal of time. If Bohol is your priority, one viable option would be to split the trip with this island and either Cebu or Boracay.
