The hillside cemetery contains 17,000 white marble crosses remembering the military who died in World War II in the Pacific region (mainly in New Guinea and the Philippines).
The marble crosses are aligned in eleven plots set among a wide variety of tropical trees. The cemetery is well kept and beautiful. It is the largest American Cemetery outside the United States.
Inside the circular memorial are huge mosaics depicting the battles of the Pacific. On the other walls within the hemicycles are inscribed the names of 36,285 missing soldiers.
From the cemetery you have impressive views of Laguna de Bay, Fort Bonifacio and Metro Manila.
Where: The American Cemetery is located on McKinley Road in Bonifacio Global City.
My rating: 9/10
A very quite and serene spot near Makati City. Well kept and beautiful. Very impressive. A must see.
