Ever feel like the city is too fast, too noisy, too much? Ever need to relax, unwind, and just enjoy nature. But then, you don’t have the time to go away from Manila for so long? Or that you can’t do much of the adventure-y outdoors-y things, but you kind of want to try?
Even before Haiyan, a lot of people never saw Leyte as a tourist destination. With its rural charms and resilient people, Leyte bounced back from the throes of devastation and came back better that ever. Of course, the rehabilitation after the great typhoon isn’t totally complete yet, but the progress was amazing. This province should definitely be in your must-visit list!
