"SUBIC BAY METROPOLITAN AREA" Olongapo City by lemon4juice

Olongapo City Travel Guide: 114 reviews and 239 photos


SBMA - Subic Bay Metropolitan Area. This was once a very huge US Military base in the Philippines. In 1904 Theodore Roosevelt have said " If we are to exert the slightest influence in Western Asia…it is one of the highest importance that we have a naval station in Subic Bay." Before WW1 Subic Bay was the largest US Marine Corps Training Facility . Until now, you can still these traces inside.

For any inquiries about SBMA you may call this number SBMA Tourism Department (63-47) 252-4242/4123/4180 or Freeport Services Corporation Tourism Department (63-47) 252-2313 to 2317. I'll be focusing more of the SBMA rather than the Olongapo City itself. Because I myself have not gotten exposed yet outside SBMA.
