Philippines - Around Manila (Chapter)
This is the Around Manila chapter from Lonely Planet’s Philippines guidebook.
The area south of Manila is home to a clutch of interesting military history sights and some of the most dramatic landscapes you’ll find anywhere. Volcanoes are the speciality, with some impressive sea- and townscapes thrown in. Head north and you’ll run square into the most notorious volcano of them all, Mt Pinatubo, in the underrated Zambales Mountains. It overlooks the twin ex-military bases of Subic and Clark, now struggling to become tourism hubs.
