Philippines Things to Do: 495 reviews and 1,012 photos


One of my most favorite things to do is visiting Karen (birgitte) in her hometown in Bataan.
Standing proudly atop Mt. Samat is the Dambana ng Kagitingan or Shrine of Valor. Historic and beautifully well kept, the shrine also has a museum that houses WWII memorabilia.
Drop by Karen's home to visit and see her loving (believe me) pitbulls as well as her beautiful watercolors. Of course I won't mention her mom and sister's cooking...that's our secret ;-)

Address: Pilar, Bataan
