Things To Do in Corregidor during the CIHM

What do you do before and after the race in Corregidor?

Choose what suits you most or do everything on that weekend!

1. Do the island guided tour on the tranvia. For P250 only, runners and their guests can get to visit the exciting historical landmarks around the island.

Visit the Pacific War Memorial and the Museum. On display are World War II memorabilia. From this area, the Topside, you get a magnificent view of the island’s tail side.

Battery Way

Since Corregidor island is strategically located on the mouth of the Manila Bay, it was used as an island-fortress by the Spaniards, Americans and later on the Japanese. Much of the heavy artillery batteries are still standing today.

2. Watch the Malinta Tunnel Light and Sound Show.

Did you know that during World War II the Malinta Tunnel was the Office of President Manuel L. Quezon and Gen. Douglas McArthur? At the same time it was a military headquarters, armory, barracks and a 1,000 bed hospital.

Discover more interesting facts about the tunnel during the show. The show costs P150 per head.
