3D/2N Leyte & Samar Sample Itinerary

As promised, I did return to Tacloban, Leyte and I included Samar in my itinerary.  I've been here already, but I will never get tired of going back to the historical sites I've been to.  This time I served as the tour guide for my friends, prepared the 3D/2N Itinerary and arranged the transportation for us.

Complete List of Hotels & Inns in Leyte Province

Last Updated: February 6, 2017
Please find below the list of accommodations in Tacloban City, Leyte. This is just a list and does not guarantee the current room rates, addresses, contact numbers and quality of service of the hotels. It is advisable that you do a full and thorough research about a specific hotel before booking.

Maria Kanon Madonna of Peace Shrine

Just below the Crucified Christ is the Madonna of Japan Shrine with the statue of Maria Kanon, the Goddess of Peace. This statue was donated by Japan to the Philippines as a symbol of peace and friendship.

Leyte Park Resort

We’re told that if we want to go for a night out, we must try the Leyte Park and the floating restaurant.  Assuming that at 10:00 in the evening is the best time to party out, we went there expecting a lot of people.  I guess 10:00 is late for oldies like us!

Ocho Seafood & Grill Restraunt

Ocho Seafood and Grill has been serving Tacloban with a fusion of Filipino and Chinese cuisine since 2002. From a small eatery, it has grown to become one of the city’s top food spots and surely the preferred place for the best seafood in town.

Crucified Christ and the Map of Leyte Pilgrim Monument

Located at the Kanruhaw Hill just beside the Tacloban City hall is the Crucified Christ overlooking the sea.  When we visited this, it's currently for renovation thus the metal bars in the pictures.
The statue has the image of the crucified Christ on one side and what makes it unique with other image is the map of Leyte on the other side. It has a fountain with wishing pond, but it's not currently working at that time because of the renovation.
One of the 2 tablets attached on the foot of the statue
Another stone has this inscription.

Map of Leyte


In 1521, Magellan discovered the Philippines, and held the first mass in Limasawa Island, in 1945, MacArthur made true to his promise through his words “I shall return”. For him to save the country from invaders and set foot on the shore of Palo, Leyte.

Leyte is indeed blessed for being the gateway to Christianity and liberation of the Philippines. The Lord Jesus must have planned it the people is in search for paradise not knowing that they are standing on a blessed Island, the sculpted image of Christ.”
  
Governor Remedios L. Petilla

Province of Leyte



The Image of the Crucified Christ


“Upon seeing the map of Leyte, I had visualised an image of a crucified man. The Map of Leyte is indeed the crucified Christ”.


Nemiranda
Artist

If you have extra time, you can walk around the hill to explore the City Hall and walk down the stone steps down the hill where the Peace Shrine is located.

How to get to the Monument:
From downtown, just hire a tricycle to bring you to the Tacloban City Hall. Special trip costs Php60.00 per trip.

Hotel Alejandro, Tacloban City

There are lots of hotels in Tacloban, but since I already stayed at Hotel Alejandro I booked here the second time around.  Not only because they offer great food for breakfast, but their service is great too!

Cafe Teresa at Hotel Alejandro

When we stayed at Hotel Alejandro, breakfast is included in their room rate.  I loved their breakfast, especially the danggit and daing na bangus.  When we came back I made sure my friends have breakfast here.

Sunzibar Restaurant: My Favorite Restaurant in Tacloban City!

This Mexican restaurant looks just your normal restaurant but don't be deceived. This is one of the reasons I want to go back to Tacloban. Loved by locals and tourists, with its sumptuous yet inexpensive menu. A really must try is their Nachos Salad and Rum Ribs.  I love...love...love the Nachos Salad!  If only I can order a take home without spoiling the Nachos, I would.
