Historical Landmarks Like a historical archive, the province of Bataan harbors vivid stories of the past. A picturesque peninsula where soldiers and civilians once staged patriotism like no other and stood firm against what seemed to be the impossible as they fought valiantly against the Japanese forces during the Second World War. From the verdant plains to its rolling mountains littered with stories of struggle, hope and gallantry, the Filipino’s uncommon valor and love for freedom resounds where guns and canons once rang. Today, the Peninsula is the History Hub of Central Luzon. It is our pride to share with you the historical significance of the province.
Eco Tourism Bataan is a proof of God's wonders from the seas to the land and up to the mountains. Indeed, the peninsula satisfies not only the historians but people from all walks of life, especially nature lovers. One of the preferred destinations is the Bataan National Park, a protected area of the Philippines located in the mountainous interior of the province. Found in the middle of the park is the Mt. Natib. There are abundant resources of water identified such as springs, rivers, waterfalls, and creeks. Various species of birds and mammals are found inside. Activities in the park involve nature viewing, bird watching, and trekking to its several peaks and waterfalls. However, there are no communication facilities established in the area but your experience is surely worth it.
Sports and Adventure Bataan is famous for being the site of some of the most heroic but hopeless Filipino soldiers. It also became the last stand of the Second World War. But aside from that, Bataan is also rich in nature. For mountain bikers, the province is equally famous for the feared Bataan Killer Loop–a mountain bike route so mythically knotted and twisted. Many sports adventure can be done here in Bataan while you get to see the rich environment of the Province. Be high with Nature!
