Disturbing Destinations: Five Places to Visit for a Spooky Halloween

Mars, FN's editorial assistant, shares five of the most frightening places in the country. By Marianne Salazar

I’ve always been blissfully unobservant when it comes to paranormal happenings. During my sixth grade class retreat, ghostly ambulance sirens blared from inside our sleeping quarters while I slept through the whole ordeal. When I was a high school freshman, the scent of kalachuchi, a flower commonly used for funerals, inexplicably wafted throughout the classroom a few hours after a mass was held for an upperclassman who died from lupus. All of my classmates smelled it--except me.

Though I’m honestly a bit frustrated by my insensitivity to ghosts and other entities (for purely shallow reasons, like the fact that I have no proper spooky stories to share), I always thank my lucky stars that I’m not one of those people with super-sensitive third eyes, especially since I like going to historical places. The thing is, due to the Philippines’ colorful (and bloody) history, there are so many places in our country that have a lot of scary tales to tell, making it a great destination for a supernaturally-induced adrenaline rush. Read on for five spooky spots you should visit for an unforgettable Halloween!
