In this article, allow me to shorty share with you the scenic spots in the province.

1.Shrine of Valor

Also known as the Dambana ng Kagitingan, this Bataan Tourist Spot is widely known throughout the archipelago. Situated at the peak of Mt. Samat National Park in Pilar, the cross at the top of the place is a bitter and sweet reminder of the thousands of people who sacrificed their lives back in the Japanese occupation era. This also serves as a viewing deck of the area. At the bottom part, there is a 64-stepped staircase that serves as a commemoration of the arrival of the president on the historic fall of Bataan back in the World War II era.

2. Bataan Nuclear Power Plant

This is a safe facility. I repeat, no need for you to worry because it is secure. Why? It was built, but it was never used. So, no worries about radiation and other harmful effects to one’s health. This educational tour will give you a glimpse on the step by step of energy production.

3. Ambon- Ambon and Limutan Waterfalls

The 60-feet high waterfall will be a sight to behold. Feel the beauty of nature as you explore this Bataan tourist spot and at the same time, beat the heat by taking a bath at the basin part of the waterfalls.

4.Pawikan Conservation Center

The initiative of the province of Bataan to conserve the Philippine marine turtles is indeed admirable. Once hatchlings are declared to be healthy and well, they are being released in the ocean. This way, their population is protected.

5.Bataan Techno Park

This place is a remembrance of how we welcomed and cared for the Vietnamese refugees during the Vietnam war. In going here, you will see a commemoration of the structure built for them back then along with the fusion of culture of the Vietnamese to the people of Bataan. It is believed that the way people in Bataan prepare some of their dishes is similar to the Vietnamese. A manifestation of cultural fusion and adaptation.

6.Wetland and Nature Park

Are you interested in bird watching? Then heading to this Bataan tourist spot is a great idea. The place is flocked with a lot of migratory birds in a particular month of the year. The wetlands along with the lush mangrove are estimated being visited by about 25,000 migratory birds yearly.

7.Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar

Situated at Bagac, being here will make you feel that you are back in the days of Maria Clara. The houses, the costumes, and everything in it resembles the old towns of the country back in the Spanish occupation. This Bataan Tourist Spot is famous for its scenic spots, educational tour, and beach escapade.

Rates at Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar: start PHP 9,500 for four (4) pax

8. The Ground Zero

The 100-kilometer Death March had two-kilometer zero. Once it is in Mariveles while the other one is in Bagac. Seeing this significant marker allows you to somehow know a part of the history of the country and its people.

9. San Miguel Rock

Situated in Barangay Sisiman in Mariveles, the San Miguel Rock or also locally known as “susong dalaga” is found. Though it may not be spectacular at all, I can see a lot of potential for this rock formation. An activity center for those who are fond of rock climbing or the likes for instance.

10.Orani Fish Port

Looking for some bargaining of seafood? You’re at the right place! With the teaming life of seafood industry here, I am sure that you will find the entirely fresh food that you want in your perfectly suited budget.

11.Plaza de Mayor

The European vibe of this plaza is enough to make you feel delighted. The city hall, mall, hotel, and all other nearby establishments add up to the overall vibe of the place. During a special occasion, events and shows are also held in this plaza.

12. Mt. Binutas and Sinagtala

The view from the Sinagtala can bring you the solitude that you’ve been searching for. For one, the surrounding is filled with greeneries matched with the fresh cold air. Having a glimpse of the place from the top is never a bad idea.

13.The Surrender Site and Bataan World War II Museum

Situated inside the Balanga elementary school is the actual site when back then American Major General King signed the surrender document to the Japanese. Also known as the Fall of Bataan, this place deserves a visit for a thousand reason. One of which is to give utmost respect.
