Bataan will always be intertwined with the rich history of our country. The province is often associated with the historic Battle of Bataan, wherein Filipino and American soldiers fought the Japanese forces during World War II. Filipinos’ defeat to Japan was followed by the brutal Bataan Death March—an atrocity that caused the demise of more than 10,000 prisoners of war after around 75,000 troops were forced to undertake a 65-mile march to the prison camp.
Aside from its historical significance, Bataan is also blessed with beautiful tourist attractions that you can check out when in Central Luzon. More than three hours away from Manila by bus (or around an hour away via a ferry boat ride across Manila Bay), the province is home to iconic landmarks, gorgeous beaches, waterfalls, mountains, resorts, local dishes, and festivals. Whether you’re into sightseeing, swimming, hiking, or other outdoor activities, you’ll never run out of options here in Bataan.
Infrastructure developments such as Bataan-Cavite Interlink Bridge will even make it easier for you to visit, live, or even invest in this piece of historical and eco-tourism haven. In this list, you’ll discover why it’s best to invest in Bataan, an industrial investment hub.
Infrastructure, Accessibility and Strategic Location of Bataan
The 32.15-kilometer Bataan-Cavite Interlink Bridge project aims to shorten travel time between the two provinces to 20 to 30 minutes instead of the usual five hours. It will begin from Barangay Alas-asin in Mariveles, Bataan, then it will cross Manila Bay and finish at Barangay Timalan in Naic, Cavite. According to reports, as of March 3, the P175.7-billion four-lane bridge’s detailed engineering design is at 34 percent. It is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2023. Infrastructure developments like this may help enhance connectivity, spur economic growth, and attract investors to the province.
The province is accessible via the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX) and North Luzon Expressway (NLEX). It is notable for its strategic location amidst the Philippines’ growth triad of Subic Bay Metropolitan Area, Clark Special Economic Zone, and Metro Manila.
Eco-tourism and Historical Sites in Bataan
Bataan is also teeming with must-visit spots for history buffs and nature lovers. Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar is a 400-hectare heritage resort in Bagac that displays stellar local craftsmanship and old-world charm for those who wish to travel back in time. It features a glimpse of the Spanish colonial era through its restored houses and immersive tours that the whole family can enjoy.
History enthusiasts will love exploring the ruins at Corregidor Island, a former Allied forces headquarters under Gen. Douglas MacArthur, or paying tribute to our country’s war heroes in Mount Samat National Shrine (Dambana ng Kagitingan). Bataan World War II Museum, Zero Kilometer Death March Marker, Plaza Mayor de Ciudad de Balanga, and St. Joseph’s Cathedral are not to be missed.
For tourists wanting to indulge in the beauty of Mother Nature, you can head to Five Fingers Cove in Mariveles, Anvaya Cove Beach and Nature Club in Morong, Pawikan Conservation Center in Morong, Tarak Ridge in Mariveles, Bataan National Park in Samal, Mount Natib in Orani, Dunsulan Waterfalls in Pilar, and Tala View Deck in Orani.
