Posted on February 7, 2019

Tacloban is one of the most progressive cities in the country today, and there seems to be something new and exciting to experience with every visit.

Basey, Samar: Limestone Marvels of Sohoton Caves & Natural Bridge Park

Posted on November 10, 2018

There’s another bridge worth exploring when you visit Eastern Visayas. Eons before the 2-km San Juanico Bridge – the longest bridge over water in the Philippines – was built to connect the islands of Leyte and Samar, Mother Nature has carved out her majestic counterpart inland along a limestone river gorge in Basey, Samar. Located within the southern portion of the 450,000-hectare Samar Island Natural Park, Sohoton Caves and Natural Bridge Park (formerly Sohoton Natural Bridge National Park, established in 1935)Read More

Paranas, Samar: Torpedo Boat Extreme Ride at Ulot River

Posted on November 8, 2018

Joining the ranks of sought-after destinations like Palawan and Batanes, Samar is one of the last wild frontiers of the Philippine archipelago, but unlike its counterparts somehow doesn’t receive as much attention and still remains largely off the beaten track.

Despite its relative proximity to the “world’s best island” of Siargao, Southern Leyte lies outside the tourism radar and unfortunately only makes it to the national news when a natural calamity such as a typhoon or landslide hits this remote province in Eastern Visayas. It is this obscurity that got me excited on the first day of our Samar-Leyte tour organized by the Tourism Promotions Board of the Philippines when we departed Tacloban City and made it as far asRead More
