Itinerary

Early rise as our private, chauffeur driven and air-con car will pick you up from your hotel at 05:00 am.

We drive to San Fernando Station, scene of where Filipino and US Prisoners of War where forced by the Japanese Army to march on foot the long way to Camp O’Donnel in Capas, Tarlac.

We then drive to Bataan Pensinsula and pause at the Monument of Layac Junction, a key, first line, defensive position of the Filipino-US forces.

It is also the 68 km point of the Death March in which 75,000 Filipino soldiers, 10,000 US troops and 20,000 civilians were forced to march by the Japanese.

We carry on to Balanga and visit the precise location where Major General King formally surrendered to Japanese Colonel Nagyama on 9th April 1942.

We then stop in the town of Bagac to pay our respects at The Zero Kilometer Death March Marker and on our way from Bagac to Pilar we drive to the Bell Tower, a 27m high tower erected in 1975 to commemorate peace and reconciliation between the Philippines and Japan. We then stop to reflect at the “Battle of the Pockets” marker and the “Pantigan River Bridge” where over 400 men were executed in cold blood.

Following lunch we head to the Mt. Samat Shrine, commissioned in 1966 by President Ferdinand Marcos to commemorate the 25th anniversary of World War II,  and to remember those who lost their lives at the Battle of Bataan. If the weather is clear we can see the city of Manila and Corregidor Island.

The Mt. Samat War Museum has artifacts ranging from pictures and paintings of Philippine and American heroes to armaments used by Philippines, US and Japanese troops during the war.

Finally, we visit the village of Bacolor, home of the San Guillemo Church built in 1576, and see for ourselves the devastating consequences of the 1991 Mt. Pinatubo eruption that buried the church 2/3 in lava.
