This vacation house of the late dictator and his family is a living proof of wealthy living while they're in power. Every Filipino must visit this place especially students to have a view of what the Marcoses had during their era. After the visit, you...More

This Shrine-Museum represents Philippines and its government, old, sick, crumbling, and needing new, true, healthy, and young blood. It is riddled with neglect, dilly-dallying, passing responsibility to the next (is there???) abled-body to handle its needs, but is there anybody abled out there? You'll get...More

Sequestered by PCGG in 1986, this place will open your mind on the narcissicm of the Marcoses. You need to ask many questions to the PCGG staff. Bonus if you have read on the Marcos clan (from Imelda's siblings and the whole immediate family) The...More

The day we visited the Museum had few visitors so we felt we had exclusive access to it. The collection of ivory was particularly interesting, however, the exhibits were not very well displayed, but I guess this comes down to funding, as does the issue...More
