TIEZA Bloggers Tour at Corregidor
The Philippines has 7,000+ island, Corregidor Island is located in Cavite and under the TIEZA (Tourism Infrastructure and Enterprise Zone Authority).
Corregidor is an island where Japanese and Americans occupied during the World War I and World War II. This place is a passageway to Manila Bay that’s why it is one of the places that became a Harbor Defense. Many Filipinos, Japanese and American soldiers died on the island.
I’ve been wanting to visit Corregidor for a long time because I knew it’s just a few hours away from Manila by sea. And thanks to TIEZA for inviting us bloggers to tour around this historic place. I and my fellow bloggers met at the Mall of Asia Seaside Ferry Terminal of the Sun Cruise at 7 am, the cruise will depart from Manila at exactly 8 in the morning and about 1 1/2 hour travel by sea.

We also went to the Malinta Tunnel (Ma-Linta/Leech) is one of the creepiest place here (well, for me, lol). It is where more than 2,000 Japanese soldiers died inside thru bombing. Japanese soldiers would rather die by their own hands than to be killed by their enemy – the American soldiers.
It was a tiring yet worthy whole day trip. Knowing our history, seeing a historic place and learning at the same is a precious moment to treasure.
