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. 

Tram Buses are waiting at the port to tour around us, we are designated at the Bus Number 5.  We had so much fun during our day tour in Corregidor. Thanks to our tour guide Kuya Armando for his humor and knowledge about the history of Corregidor. We went all parts of Corregidor – from the tail to the north and south part of the island where we learned about the Word War I and II history. How our great Filipinos tried to defend our beloved country from the Japanese. We are all in awe to know that there are so many facts that are not in our History Textbooks, but that’s the beauty of traveling and being on a tour because it’s a never ending learning about our history and place itself. We’ve seen lots of ruins in Corregidor, see pictures below:

South part of Corregidor has a nice beach and tourist and guests can swim at the beach. 

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.
