It was a peaceful bird filled space in the shadow of the high risers, without too much invasion of tourism attracting elements, but a respect for those who have died, and a discussion of why they did so.

The cemetery is awe inspiring. So many people died in the defense of our way of life. These men and women of all faiths were heroes. The cemetery is a reminder to all of us that this can never be allowed to happen again.

A lovely place to be in. Be sure to go before 5.00 pm in the evening because on the dot it closes. It is somewhat like Arlington in USA. It gives you a very peaceful feeling standing and overlooking the line of tombs. A must place to visit.

Informative place and rich in history. The place is filled with serenity which is perfect for a short getaway from the busy city. Walking around and reading the historical events and names of soldiers who died for a cause. There are some 5 names that are all the same, probably siblings or relatives. Generally it is nice to walk and... More

I took a taxi here and waived one down to get back into town. If you are from the United States they ask to see your passport and record your name and some other information. The expectation is that you dress "respectfully." From a historical/intellectual perspective, it gives one an interesting window into how the United States saw itself during... More

A tribute to the American heroes. Very serene place, excellently managed and maintained. Perched atop the highest point of Metro Manila (I am told, at least)

A nice tourist spot to commemorate the soldiers who have fought for us. Very solemn and quiet. But needs a car to visit
