Join YPT for our Easter Trip to the Philippines for the Cutud Lenten Rites and Marcos Mausoleum tour. Reenactments of The Passion of the Christ are a well-known phenomenon in The Philippines, but the Cutud Lenten Rites Festival takes things to a whole new level with the penitents not only flagellating themselves, but finishing off with a full on crucifixion. This is the most sought after and popular event in the whole of The Philippines during Easter, and an extremely memorable experience.
Following this we head to the site of not only the most inaccessible mausoleum in the world, but also the worlds only private one that hosts the former leader of the Philippines Ferdinand Marcos in Batac the self-styled city of great leaders. Marcos’s body has recently been buried back in Manila, but we will check out the site with the museum and waxworks, whilst also checking out historical towns and adventuring in one of the most beautiful parts of rural Philippines.
