It was Papa O’s second time and Baby A’s first time in Leyte. So, we drove around the province and visited the top 2 tourist spots.
San Juanico Bridge
The San Juanico Bridge is the longest bridge in the Philippines, with a length of 2 km. It crosses the San Juanico Strait, bridging the islands of Samar and Leyte. It is also known as the Marcos Bridge, it is said to have been presented as a Gift and “Testimonial of Love” by the Philippine President Ferdinand Marcos to the first lady, Imelda, a native of Leyte. – source
Leyte Landing Memorial
The Leyte Landing Memorial is a memorial to the landing of General Douglas MacArthur and his men at Red Beach. It is located in Candahug, a barangay of the municipality of Palo in the province of Leyte, part of the Visayas. Also known as the MacArthur Landing Memorial Park, the memorial consists of larger-than-life bronze statues of the general with other men, including then Philippine president Sergio Osmeña, Jr., standing in a manmade pool. – source
Yung niece ko, niloko ng Ate ko na lolo niya si MacArthur. Kawawang bata, naniwala at kinuwento sa classmates niya!! Nalaman lang namin kasi nabanggit ng isang mommy ng classmate niya sa ate ko. Nakakatawa!
Anyway, we saw this new resto in Tacloban. Stand out siya kasi parang Fridays’ ang peg.
Uncle Sam’s Restaurant
This my last post about our trip to Leyte. Sorry kung madami hahaha! Hope you visit our province someday. 🙂
