Expat Philippines - Travel Philippines - Remembering Corregidor

The Philippines is much more than heavenly beaches and breathtaking natural attractions. This Southeast Asian nation, an archipelago comprising 7,107 islands, is among the countries in the world brimming with a rich historical past. It has undergone centuries of colonialism before finally achieving a total independence in 1945.

Talk about a Philippine travel guide and it'll likely advise would-be tourists to pay a visit to Corregidor to get a look at the country's past. Also known as "The Rock," Corregidor served as an important fortress for your Allied Forces during World war 2. The cannons in this island have been for a while silent but they remain a loud reminder of the pride, valor, and courage of Filipino and American soldiers who offered their lives for that greater honor of the united states.
