The Scariest Local Places to Visit for Halloween
Not in the mood to go trick-or-treating or to attend a Halloween party? This October, there’s no need to bring out your scariest costumes—just your brave souls. To get you into the full Halloween spirit, we’ve rounded up the spookiest and most haunted places you can visit locally. Go ahead and round up your girls! Let this thrilling trip make this year’s Halloween extra-memorable.
Clark Air Base Hospital, Clark, Pampanga

But if you’re looking for a good scare, why not take a quick stop at the scariest place in town? Pampanga is home to the abandoned Clark Air Base Hospital, which is known to be one of the most haunted places in the country. During the World War II and the Vietnam war, injured and dying soldiers were being treated here, which may explain the chilling “cries” that ghost hunters claim to hear inside the hospital.
Diplomat Hotel, Baguio

Take note, though, tours are only held at daytime! The now-abandoned school-turned-hotel is nestled at the top of the Dominican hill and it’s notorious for its dark past. During the World War II, nuns and priests were awfully beheaded and so, legend has it that headless ghosts creep at the wee hours of the night.
Manila Film Center, Manila

Back in 1981, Imelda Marcos had it built for the upcoming 1982 International Film Festival. Unfortunately, in the middle of the rushed construction, the upper floor collapsed, killing several construction workers. What’s more horrifying is that Marcos pushed through with the construction; cement was allegedly poured over the dead bodies.
Balete Tree, Siquijor

Here, the most interesting spot to visit is the 400-year-old balete tree, which is believed to be enchanted by locals. According to urban legends, it is where mystical beings reside.
The Hospital Ruins, Corregidor
The Corregidor island in Cavite holds so much history; many lives were lost here as a thousand of American and Filipino soldiers battled against the Japanese during the World War II. Naturally, Corregidor’s hospital (which is now called the Hospital Ruins) witnessed several deaths—especially when the hospital itself was bombed by the Japanese in 1912. Today, tours are being held inside the hospital and it’s not for the faint of heart!
