Get a unique look at the Philippines’ military history, indigenous culture and amazing wildlife on this day trip from Manila to Subic Bay. With your local guide, tour a former US naval facility, now a modern free port, and learn jungle survival skills from Aetas, the indigenous people. End your tour with an exciting tiger safari or marine animal show!

After early morning hotel pickup, take a scenic drive to Subic in the province of Zambales, 75 miles (121 km) northwest of Manila. As you pass through the provinces of Bulacan and Pampanga, witness the aftermath brought by Mt Pinatubo’s eruption in 1991, considered the strongest volcanic eruption in the last century.

Reach the Subic Naval Base, a former US naval facility that was America’s largest naval facility in the Pacific region until it was abandoned after the volcano’s eruption. Your expert local guide will explain how this area has since been converted into a modern free port and tourism zone.

Tour the facility and learn about its history during the Battle of Manila Bay and the Philippine-American War. Then, visit a JEST (Jungle Environmental Survival Training) Camp, where you’ll witness Aetas, the Philippines' indigenous people, demonstrate skills needed to survive in a tropical jungle.

At midday, you'll head to a local restaurant to enjoy some delicious Filipino food.

Finally, experience a Zoobic Safari, an exciting tiger safari that’s the only one of its kind in the Philippines. Aboard a safety-protected Jeep, ride through a tiger enclosure and feel your adrenaline rush as you get up close to these animals!

Afterward, you’ll be taken back to your Manila hotel.
