I had always wanted to go to Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar in Bagac, Bataan because I want to see the historical houses that were transported from different provinces of the Philippines there. Unfortunately, when we went to Bataan we only had 1 thousand pesos for our budget so we had to skip this one.
Since my dream of getting there was not fulfilled, let me at least help you fulfill your dream to get there.
