Guess What I Did When I Went Back to Samar?

1 year ago by Solenn

Six months ago, I shared how a trip to Samar helped inspire my second exhibit, Kalsada. And just recently, I got to go back! I swear, Samar is really one of the most undiscovered places here in the Philippines. Did you know that it’s the third biggest caving capital in the world? Actually, before I decided to see more of our beautiful country, I thought the must-sees were only Boracay and Palawan. But I was wrong. After seeing beautiful places like Samar, I know that there is so much more the Philippines has to offer. 

The first time I went to Samar, I went to Biri Island up north. This time, we landed in Tacloban from Manila and drove two hours to get there. What I love about this place is it’s so serene and totally not overdeveloped. It reminds me how some things don’t need to be flashy or techy or over constructed to be beautiful. Samar is beautiful just the way it is. I actually can’t wait to go more so I can tick more things off my bucket list. Samar Tourism is going to be releasing a video of me going all over, but in the meantime, you can watch the video I took below (it’s not as profesh, pero I had fun filming lol). Also, here are some of the places you should go to when you find yourself in Samar:

1. San Juan Floating Restaurant and Boardwalk

2. Sohoton Cave

3. Sohoton Natural Bridge Natural Park

4. Ulot River Boat Adventure in Paranas

Enjoy watching and let me know in the comments where you think I should head to next in the Philippines!
