IF you're in the area then its worth the few min drive from Tacloban. Not much to see other than the statues on the landing site where Mac Arthur returned. I would have liked to see more plaques with a more detailed historical account of what happened and what makes the site significant. It is pretty well kept, did not... More

Important historical landmark shared by the Philippines and the U. S. MacArthur himself was not so grand, but as a symbol of the war and the cooperation between Phils and Us, it is important.

The famous line of Mac Arthur was a dream come true for me, to see this park where the Leytenos create a replica of Mac Arthur landing together with his companion during the WWII. It will take you 20-30 minutes from the airport heading to the park. A nice place to visit that very rich in Philippine history.
