The Republic of the Philippines is an archipelago of 7,641 islands with three main geographical areas namely Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao. Located in Southeast Asia, it is composed of 17 Regions including the Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR) and the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM). Its seat of capital is the city of Manila, a populous urban jungle situated in the National Capital Region.
The Philippines is blessed with tropical weather year-round, an advantage for the abundant flora and fauna of its islands. It’s also home to some of the most revered tourist destinations in the world: the Banaue Rice Terraces, the Chocolate Hills in Bohol, the Tubbataha Reefs Natural Park in Sulu Sea, and the white beaches of Boracay.
Eastern Visayas is centrally located on the eastern flank of the Philippine archipelago, standing like ramparts to the golden east. It is composed of three (3) major islands, namely Samar, Leyte and Biliran. The twin-islands are connected by the iconic San Juanico Bridge. Samar is subdivided into three (3) provinces (Northern, Eastern and Samar – the mother province). Leyte on the other hand is subdivided into two (2) provinces, Leyte and Southern Leyte. Across the mainland is the island province of Biliran.
Each of these provinces offer various unique experiences to every travelling Juan. They offer urban amenities amid enchanting rural settings. The region’s climate is tropical. Majority of the locals here speak the Waray-Waray dialect. The region remains relatively unspoiled and under-the-radar compared to other tourist destinations in the Philippines, but this is slowly changing. With its picturesque rugged coasts and landscapes, secret kitchens, caves, and waterfalls, to fascinating histories, Eastern Visayas is sure to captivate every tourist’s adventure-hungry soul.
