About the Guidebook

This guide is intended for those that are looking for an international location that hasn't been consumed by the tourist scene, such as Boracay or Palawan. The Eastern Visayan Island, although still very much a developing part of the Philippines, is home to equally as beautiful beaches and attractions as the top destination in the Philippines. Here, on the island of Leyte, you will have the opportunity to get sun, eat some amazing food, indulge in affordable luxuries, and hopefully meet some amazing people as the Filipino culture is one (if not) the most hospitable and friendly cultures in the world!   

Local Knowledge & Cool Perks


The best way to impress someone in the Philippines and instantly make a friend is to speak a little of the local language, with that said, English is widely spoken as well as the national language of Tagalog. In the Visayans there are two major local dialects; Waray-Waray (the one I am most familiar with) and Cebuano, they have some similarities but still distinctly different. Here are a few, very basic Waray-Waray vocabulary words for you to throw out there. 

Oo - Yes

Dire - No

Cige - Ok 

Salamat - Thank You

Maupay - Good or more commonly used when getting the attention of a store clerk

Hinay - Take Care; used as you are leaving 

Para - Stop; used when telling a Jeepney or Pedicab to stop to let you off
