CORREGIDOR ISLAND, PHILIPPINES
Part 1

Corregidor is a small rocky island in the Philippines about 48 kilometers west of Manila which is stragetically located at the entrance of Manila Bay. This island fortress stands as a memorial for the courage, valor, and heroism of its Filipino and American defenders who bravely held their ground against the overwhelming number of invading Japanese forces during World War II.

Also known as "the Rock," it was a key bastion of the Allies during the war. When the Japanese invaded the Philippines in December 1941, the military force under the command of Gen. Douglas MacArthur carried out a delaying action at Bataan. Corregidor became the headquarters of the Allied forces and also the seat of the Philippine Commonwealth government. It was from Corregidor that Philippine President Manuel Quezon and General MacArthur left for Australia in February 1942, leaving behind Lt. Gen. Jonathan M. Wainwright in command.
Currently, it is an important historic and tourist site and is managed under the jurisdiction of Cavite City.





















Throughout the trip, Mr. Alonzo kept telling us to watch out for monkeys throughout the island. We did not see any and when I pointed that out to him, he tells us that the monkeys are all riding the tramvias. I knew I'll like him from the start.













Throughout the tour, we found the island well maintained and run professionally by its keepers. The grounds are well maintained, some of the keepers are dressed in Filipino World War II uniforms and they really look sharp.

It holds the single distinction as the first successful wildlife translocation
