Corregidor Island: A travel back into time
Corregidor Island is one of those places that I’ve been dreaming of to visit for the longest time. I’ve watched different travel documentaries, seen creative photos from several travel bloggers about how beautiful the Corregidor Island was. However, I would not categorize myself as a history buff but funny, how I was always amazed by factual remains of historical places and ruins that witnessed how rich and at the same time how beautiful Philippine history is.
Corregidor Island also known as “The Rock” is a small rocky island in the Philippines which is part of the municipality of Cavite and not Bataan. Quite interestingly about it, was, the island is shaped like a tadpole. This island fortress stands as a memorial for the courage, valor and heroism of its Filipino and American defenders during World War II.
The College of SIHM got the opportunity to finally visit the island, and lucky me! I’m a Tourism student! It was through a tour package that was organized by Mrs. Ma. Luisa Doon, Tourism Society adviser, and gladly for P1, 700.00 it shouldered all expenses including our bus transportation from WCC to Pasay, the Ferry ride to Corregidor, a guided tour via Tranvia and lunch pack for our day tour in Corregidor.
Our trip was scheduled last January 24, 2013. We need to be at Sun Cruises Terminal by 7am on the day of our trip as the cruise will aboard at exactly 8am.
