Leyte Gulf Landing’s Anniversary
A commemorative program which marks the anniversary of the Ocotber 20, 1944 landing on Leyte of the Allied Forces of Liberation. General Douglas MacArthur and his men waded ashore at Red Beach in the town of Palo where statues of the liberators now stand. The historic event is usually attended by national government officials and dignitaries from embassies of United States, Japan, and Australia as well as World War II veterans who come on a sentimental journey.
Directions: Leyte Park!
Tacloban city is like alot of other townships I have seen in the Philippines. Although crowded, this is the travel pivot point for your destinations throughout the eastern Visayas. Downtown is hardly a place to hang out other than to catch a boat to a neighboring island, or a bus or shuttle to ormoc or another location. I had attained a boat for 1000 pesos "20 US Dollars". That covered a whole day of sightseeing, recommended swimming areas, and fun fishing and catching some mighty big crab, which we ate later that evening. Fishing, farming and living off of the environment is what Leyte is all about.
Directions: Downtown near the waterfront!
