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!
Palawan, the great tourist center of the Philippines. It houses the popular tourist hotspots El Nido and Puerto Prinsesa, and the slowly developing Coron. Funnily, Coron town isn’t located in Coron Island.
