Tourism in Leyte
Leyte province’s tourism potential has been cited by the regional office of the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI). DTI provincial director Desiderio P. Belas, Jr. said the Northwest Leyte corridor is an ideal place for investment since it now hosts geothermal power plants, large industries, roll on-roll off (RO-RO) ports, an airport, schools and undiscovered tourist destinations.
"It was found out that hotels, tour operators, booking offices, restaurants and resorts are present in the area," Mr. Belas was quoted as saying. "Based on our initial baseline data, there are five active small and medium enterprises in tourism in the area. They are involved in hotel, restaurant, entertainment and ticketing business."
