“Interesting”

Surrender Site Marker
Reviewed 15 December 2015 via mobile

This monument is interesting to see as part of a tour, I found it nice tobsee but no so impressive as some of the WW2 museums I had seen here, the 2 or more day trip to Corrigedor is by far the most impressive trip to do.

Tucked away behind the Balanga Elementary school is this surrender site. It's takes some time to work out exactly where it is and if not for the help of a young boy sitting in the playground, we may not have found it.

This is worthwhile seeing for two reasons, the first its historic reference to WW2 and the second bonus is that it is opposite the Balanga War Museum which offers a variety of entertaining features.

I highly recommend seeing both of these historic landmarks.

This is where Major General Edward P. King Jr surrendered Bataan on WWII to stop or prevent further loss of lives. It is surely a memorable day and after this event is the start of the Death March. It is located inside a school, you can hear and see teachers and students participating in class. Infront of this is the WWII museum and just 1-2mins walk is the torture chamber used by Japanese during the WWII.

This is an important site as it is where General King surrendered the US/Fil forces on Bataan. A sad time for the US, but they DID comeback.

Bataan is the last defense before the Japanese occupation. And all the valiant heroes stood their ground until the eventual surrender.

This marker is a life-size diorama under the mango tree at inside a public elementary school. It is quite interesting and the statues are interesting. It's a definite must-stop if you want to commemorate the heroes of Bataan.

To get there, just ask a tricycle from the city to drop you off at the public school near the oval/tennis club. Then just ask the vendors/teachers to point you to the surrender marker/Diwa ng Bataan.
