Subic Bay- Mount Samat- if your coming from the US, this area of the Philippines holds a lot of US Naval and Military history. Subic Bay, was the home of the largest US Naval station for some 60 years, up until 1992 when the base was closed and the US withdrew entirely from the Philippines. At this point, in more than 450 years of Philippine history, was the first time the Philippines had not been occupied by foreign forces.
As we enter the bay, you will see it’s beauty and military significance, We will visit the old Spanish fort just near the bay, which first used the bay area for the 400+ years of Spanish occuptation.
