Culture and Corregidor: Night Tour

The night tour begins with a sunset viewing at 5:30 pm. Our guide was so enthusiastic that he taught us how to pose creatively for sunset shots. Unfortunately, none of my shots were good enough to share. Nyahaha.

Lovely sunset. Lovely colors.




















Culture and Corregidor: Daytour

I tagged along Beth and her friend. They are touring the Philippines. Since April 9 was declared a holiday (Araw ng Kagitingan), tourists were expected to flock Corregidor. We opted for an overnight stay for April 7-8, 2010. That’s two days worth of leaves for me.

I made it on time...barely. A coaster bus will take you to the drop off point of the ferry boat. Remember to take the meds if you get seasick. Since Araw ng Kagitingan was near, it was quite a special day for the war veterans. They had this ceremony/event ongoing and they were quite a big group.
