He leans over and carefully plucks a leaf from a bright green plant. Holding it to his arm as if its covering a wound, he says simply "medicine."

Jungle survival tours are a popular attraction in Subic Bay, the former US naval base that has been transformed into a special economic zone and tourist area. Starting at the time of the Vietnam War, American soldiers used the area's lush jungles and the knowledge of the local tribesmen to train for the harsh conditions of jungle warfare. After the Americans pulled out of the Philippines in 1992, tribesmen started guiding tourists.

Throughout Asia, former military sites have been transformed into unusual and fascinating tourist attractions . Not far from Subic, on the windblown island of Corregidor at the mouth of Manila Bay, visitors can huddle in the same tunnels where American general Douglas MacArthur made his last stand before the Philippines fell to Japan in World War II. A light-and-sound show recreates the nerve-wracking bombing soldiers endured.
