Corregidor: Visiting the Past with Manila Hotel




When in Manila, sometimes we feel the need to break away from the hustle and bustle of the metro. We look for a breath of fresh air and a taste of adventure especially now that it’s summer. For me, the best getaway is that which offers a chance to relax and learn at the same time. Luckily, I found just that with my Experience Corregidor trip by Manila Hotel.

Corregidor is a testament to our country’s rich history. It is home to memories of heroism and Manila’s naval defenses. An island at the forefront of Manila Bay, it is shaped like a tadpole with a rocky landscape.

In partnership with Sun Cruises, you’ll surely enjoy the scenic views during ferry transfers and learn a lot from visiting historical sites as tour guides deliver informative background of the places in Corregidor! If you decide to join the tour this summer, I highly encourage you wear light clothing.

Corregidor is a gateway to visiting the past and reliving the spirit our fellowmen passed upon us. It’s an adventure you shouldn’t miss when in Manila because I bet — like I did — you’ll be saying this after the tour: I shall return!
