A group of young entrepreneurs has put up a business to promote tourist destinations in Eastern Visayas region.
Printing shop and rent-a-car business owner Rhoel Ladrera and friends Jadway Go and Wowie Veloso, who share the same passion in marketing the region’s tourism, recently launched the Aqua Momentum Company in this city.
Aqua Momentum is promoting Tacloban City with the San Juanico speedboat tour. It will showcase the beautiful San Juanico strait and the San Juanico bridge, the longest in Southeast Asia at 2.16 km. in length.
"We will let tourists experience history by landing at Red Beach in Palo, Leyte just like General Douglas MacArthur did in the World War II liberation. Then an excursion follows at the MacArthur Landing Memorial National Park," he added.
Tourists will be excited with our tour of San Pedro Bay and the famed Rock formations of Marabut, Samar. It will start off at Tacloban City then to Marabut, Samar. They get to explore the hidden lagoon of Marabut too.
Not only that they will be selling tours for Tacloban, they also have tour packages for Kalanggaman Island in Palompon, Leyte; Sambawan Island in Maripipi, Biliran and the Kalanggaman/Malapascua tours.
People may not know this yet that Tacloban City is the fastest way to go to Malapascua in Cebu. They can have a day tour in Tacloban and hop to Kalanggaman, the jewel destination of Leyte, then to Malapascua.
