Samar and Leyte are provinces not many tourists got o visit. And that is a shame, for although they are poorer than other parts of the Philippines, they are abundant in everything else. Especially in nature.
There is plenty of water in Samar and Leyte and that turns these provinces into luscious and abundant green areas. Even more so than other parts of the Philippines. The landscape changes from endless green ricefields to volcanic mountains covered with jungle.
The Pan Filipino highway leads through these to provinces going all the way down south to transport goods and passengers to the southern states in the Philippines like Mindanao. Samar and Leyte are connected by the San Juanico bridge, a huge construction over the Leyte Gulf, and really worth driving over and have a look at.
