The Island of Leyte is nestled within the Visayan Islands and most noted for the Battle of Leyte Gulf, the landing of Gen. Douglas MacArthur on October 20, 1944 as he waded ashore saying “I have returned” – Leyte is most famous for its role in the reconquest of the Philippines in World War II.
The Philippines are a tropical paradise comprised of over 7,107 islands, officially known as the Republic of the Philippines. Its location on the Pacific Ring of Fire and its tropical climate make the Philippines prone to earthquakes and typhoons but have also endowed this beautiful landscape with natural resources that have made it one of the richest areas of biodiversity in the world. An estimated 94 million people live in the Philippines, comprised of multiple ethnicities throughout the islands.
