I walked there from BGC (6km each way) just to see the grave of the late President Ferdinand Marcos. The location is quite a contentious one for Filipinos due to Mr Marcos activities in life. They are open from 6am and you need to register...More

This is a special place to visit. Names of those killed or missing in action are displayed on huge tablets all around and it's mind-blowing to see all those thousands of crosses each depicting someone who was killed in the wars.

The world war killed more than 32k Philippines, and that's a good way to remember them, in a nice and safe park-cemetery, worth it to visit

This was our first stop in our Manila city tour. Our guide Nick explained us about this place and the rest of explanation is for the photos and wallpapers. Neat and clean area. Very quiet.

It is just amazing how the American government pays tribute to thier soldiers thousand miles away from the country. Amazing is the word. Calm, Serene and majestic.

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
We will be in Manila at the end of March. My husband's father is buried in the American Cemetery. Our main purpose for going is to visit the cemetery and his grave site. Will we be able to get a guide to explain things and show us around? Are there tours available at the cemetery? What is the best way to get there from the International Airport? How much time should we allow for our visit? Thanks.
