Haunted Locations in the Philippines

In the Philippines, there are several haunted locations that can be found throughout the country. For example, in Baguio City, there are various places to encounter, including the Diplomat Hotel, Philippine Military Academy, as well as the Teacher’s Camp. Other places of interest include the cities of Correidor, Manila, as well as Iloilo City.


When you encounter the Diplomat Hotel in Baguio City, you find a former seminary dating back to the early 1900’s. During World War II, Japanese occupying forces were responsible for the beheading of numerous nuns and priests. After the war, the location then became a hotel. An awkward feeling is noticed when entering the rooms. The rooms are quite large, displaying dimly lit sleeping quarters and Bibles on the side tables. During the night, guests, clerks, as well as bellhops, claim to hear the sounds of the dead. This has even been reported to occur during the day as well. Some have spotted headless apparitions wandering about the corridors, where some have even gone as far as to state that they saw ghosts carrying heads on platters. It is also believed that outside the hotel is just as scary as the inside.


In Baguio City, you will also find the Philippine Military Academy, where it is said that a few ghosts can be found on the premises. Some say you can hear a phantom platoon marching about the grounds. Some have sighted a ghost dressed in a parade uniform. The ghost of a white lady has also been reported in this area. The Teacher’s Camp within this same city is thought to be the location of a battlefield, where the ghosts of native warriors still wander about. It is said that their spirits have not been put to rest.

In Corregidor, there are hospital ruins and old bunkers that were left behind from World War II. Some claim to have heard the sounds of moaning ghosts, as well as unexplainable footsteps. The Malinta Tunnel in this city is said to be the haunting ground of an unknown spirit in the area. 

The University of Santo Tomas in Espana is home to a host of ghosts that can be heard about the 2nd and 3rd floors of the Main Building. It is believed that it is the souls of Spanish friars that lost their lives in the area, which is also the oldest building within the oldest Catholic university throughout the Philippines.

In Iloilo City, you will find the Central Philippine University, which was founded by missionaries from America. During World War II, the Japanese murdered the missionaries. It is said that some of their spirits haunt the school. Other ghosts that can be found throughout the university include a female ghost that can be seen jogging on the track by the football field; odd occurrences in Ruby Hall; and a female ghost that haunts Valentine Hall.
