Discovery (Post#29) : War in the Pacific National Historical Park
Aside from the memorial wall that has been put up to Asan Bay Overlook and the scenic view that it offers to the visitors, the ridge line has historical importance to the island. War in the Pacific National Historical Park boundaries are huge to emphasize its significance. There are three boards display that can be found at the lookout area that gives some information about what happened during World War II. Since Japanese was in strong positions at the hillside, they tried to do a Banzai (suicide) attack to drive Americans to the sea as they knew that if they failed they would lost the island.

Visiting Asan Bay Overlook is a worth to visit not only to realized the history that happens within the area of War in the Pacific National Historical Park but to appreciate beauty that it is now offering to anyone who visit the lookout. The scenery that I saw during the visit is now the contradiction of the historical events happened in the past. These photos are part of Guam Adventure Photo Collection April 2017.
Discovery (Post#25) : Mabini Historical Marker at Asan Beach Park
In one of the tours I had in Guam, I had a chance to see a marker of a familiar hero back home – Apolinario Mabini. I felt proud when I saw such marker. At least in a small island like Guam, one of patriotic men in my country is recognized in that part of the world. He is one of my country’s extraordinary hero as he lost his both legs because of polio disease, it wasn’t hindered him to give his love and service to the country and he often called as “The Sublime Paralytic”. Aside from that I myself more recognized him as the “Brains of the Revolution” as he became adviser when forming revolutionary government of my country. Mabini was captured by American colonial authorities during Philippine-American war and exiled to Guam. The marker which is Asan Point is where Mabini lived in Guam.
