If you like the paranormal, then a visit to the Old Diplomat Hotel is a must. This old ruin is believed to be one of the most haunted places in the Philippines. It was built in 1913 as a Dominican retreat house but was turned into a refugee camp during World War II. Later on, the camp was invaded by Japanese soldiers and here it was believed that they committed various heinous acts of brutality and torture to their captives. In the 70s, the building was converted into the beautiful Diplomat Hotel but was shut down and left abandoned in the 80s. Because of its eerie atmosphere, numerous documentaries were filmed here trying to prove that this hotel really is haunted. Most guests who visited the Diplomat Hotel would also tell their chilling experiences while in the vicinity. Despite the endless unexplainable ghost stories, locals, as well as tourists, are still fond of its magnificent structure until today.
