How to get here
Ormoc City is located in Leyte Province, Eastern Visayas. There used to be direct flights from Manila by a local airline but has now been temporarily suspended. Once could catch seat sales from various local airlines like Cebu Pacific, PAL, Air Phil Express, Fly Sea Air and Zest Air towards Tacloban City at approximately an hour’s flight.

From Tacloban City, it is a mere 2-3 hour ride to this first class city. Local shuttles (van) and different bus companies offer direct trips to and from Tacloban and also to other cities in the province of Leyte, Biliran and the Samar provinces.
