One of the most versatile tourist destinations in the Philippines is Leyte, a province in Eastern Visayas offering a wide range of historical landmarks and tropical islands, perfect for any traveler.
Its main touristic draw is Tacloban City, where the annual Pintados Festival is held every June for the Feast of the Señor Santo Niño de Leyte. The city is also the site of the San Juanico Bridge, once the longest bridge in the country, spanning 2.16 kilometers. Besides Tacloban, Leyte is famed for Kalanggaman Island and its white powdery sand beach, crystal clear waters, and long, picturesque sandbar.
Leyte province is also a fantastic kickoff point for an Eastern Visayas adventure. Explore Biri and Sambawan Islands or Lake Danao to enjoy your time exploring. While you are at it, never miss the traditional delicacies in the region available at most street food stalls, including Moron, Binagol, and the mouthwatering Beef Lomo Guisado.
