Visit Mt. Samat Shrine for a relaxing experience. It will be appreciated by both young and young at heart:) Entrance is very cheap (20 pesos per pax i.e. $0.50) and it already includes the entrance to the Museum. What more can you ask for?

This is a must - visit place for every Filipino. My grandfather was in the death march and he ended up in the death camps. He survived to tell us stories of his experience but I never imagined how it truly was.
