Malinta Tunnel Jul 19, 2008
When you visit Corregidor the tour will take you around the island and on a day tour most sights will be included on your tour. But one sight will not be included the Malinta Tunnel complex and the sound and light show.
Hence you basically got two options - you can forget about the sound and light shown and stay on the tour bus which will then drive you around the tunnel and meet the rest of the group on the other side. Or you can go on the tour and see the sound and light shown. Keep in mind there is no air condition on the open trolley buses which make the prospect of sitting outside a lot less appealing hence you may consider forking over the 150 peso to go inside the tunnel.
I went on the tour in the tunnel where the sound and light show will take you through the different faces of the battle of Corregidor and a bit of the life of the island. The tunnel served as the headquarter of Douglas MacArthur during the battle of Corregidor until he had to leave the island. And next to the tunnels entrance Manuel Quezon were sworn in as the president of the Philippines.
The tunnel also served as the last hide out for the Japanese troops during the reconquest of Corregidor during the later stages of World War II.
