Corregidor

For those who remember or are familiar with stories of World War II, the island of Corregidor in the Philippines is a place worth visiting. This tadpole-shaped island, also known as The Rock, because of its rocky landscape, is only 6 kilometres long and about 2.4 kilometers at its widest point.

It was the headquarters of the Allied Forces. Now, it is a historic monument. I went to Corregidor twice for an overnight tour. Our tour group took the ferry from Manila to Corregidor and from there we rode a tour bus that looks like the old electric trams. On the island, the US government built the Pacific War Memorial to honor the Filipino and American soldiers who participated in World War II. The Malinta Tunnel now also has an audio-visual presentation of the events that took place in Corregidor. It was a unique experience for me to actually see the batteries, ruins of buildings, and tunnels that were part of a war that killed many people.
