  1. Thank you so much! I have been looking for info on the fares from Matnog to Samar! I am planning my own trip to Samar so I have been heavily relying on internet resources.

    I was just wondering, how long is the trip from Matnog to Allen? Is it true that ferries leave the port every hour, everyday? Thanks again. :)

  2. Hi there, good info. At least I know how my girlfriend travelled all the way from Manila to Catbalogan. I’m planning to reach SAMAR but by domestic flight from MANILA.

    Do you have any advice on:-

    1. Which flight lands at Tacloban
    2. Estimate price
    3. Reliable hotels at Tacloban and Catbalogan


  3. With your permission, can I save your number? I’m coming in April to visit for the 1st time TACLOBAN. Cheers

  4. Hi dp,

    I’m coming soon and probably will try to stay at the Maqueda Bay hotel and see how it goes. One thing I find it hard is to find online car rentals going from Tacloban airport to Catbalogan. Any tips? I would prefer a private car for 2 passengers..thanks dp

  10. Just saw this fantastic post. Planning a trip to the North Samar area this summer. San Antonio Island and the places near Biri have caught my eye. Any experiance traveling and staying in these places? Do you remember seeing secluded beach huts for rent (like away from noisy traffic and such… although I don’t suppose there’s much of that in this area)?

  19. Hi I am planning on moving to Tacloban in November with my wife and daughter (she is from there) I was thinking of buying a van in Manila and driving down. Would you recomend that? My other 2 options would be buying one in Cebu and ferrying over or just flying into tacloban and buying somthing there? I was guessing I could find the best price on somthing in manila. Who runs the ferries from luzon to samar? Do they have a websight?

  21. Hello dutchpickle,

    I viewed your very nice response to the queries.
    I would like to know how much is the cost for ferrying an Isuzu Forward Truck from Matnog to Samar or Leyte. It is 20 ft. long including the cowl and weighs around 3 tons more or less. What are the documents that will be needed aside from the truck’s original CR and OR? From either Samar or Leyte, how much is the cost of ferrying the truck to its ultimate destination in Surigao City?
    What will your recommend, Matnog to Samar or Matnog to Leyte route. Please cite the route which is nearer to Surigao City.

    I just bought this truck yesterday and will deliver it to Misamis Oriental via the land route and by ferry boats. I need your answer fast. Please respond asap.

    Thank you very much.

  34. Hi dp,
    Pagkatapos nang pananalasa ng bagyong Yolanda, OK pa rin ba kaya ang roadtrip from Manila to Calbayog. I am planning to take my family after christmas with my innova (for the first time) but I am thinking na maybe ay hindi na advisable/enjoyable ang roadtrip dahil sa mga sirang kalsada (maybe). Gusto ko lang kumuha ng opinyon kasi this will be my first to samar by land. kaya naghahanap ng mga ideas about the trip. salamat po. Nestor

  37. Hi Dutchpickle, congrats on the long string of Q&As here. That only means this is a great site for people who want to know, and you’ve answered quite a lot. Kudos!

    Anyways, I would like to ask maybe you have now recent ferry/barges schedule from Matnog to Allen, and from Ormoc to Cebu? It would also help if you have the fares as well. I know from previous posts that you don’t have them at hand, but just maybe you have them now. ;-)

    I am planning to buy a vehicle in Makati, a Nissan Almera and use the Pan Philippine Highway up to Ormoc by September or October 2014.

    Thanks for your time.

    God bless!

  38. Hi DP,

    Good Day! I just wanted to ask how much is the RORO cost/s from Matnog to Alen (and vice versa) because my family is planning for a trip this December going to Leyte. We will be using a Suzuki Multicab and we are 5 passengers. Have read the comments thread here, but quite unsure if still applicable on this year since rates are from 2011 and previous. Please clarify also my understanding that aside from the Roro fee for the vehicle itself, we also have to pay terminal fee for each passenger?

    Please I need a reply. Thank you! Here is my number. Thanks!

  39. Dear DP,

    Thank you for your very informative site. I would like to ask some questions regarding our planned trip (by car) rom Alabang to Cebu province.

    1. We intend to stay for the night near the ruins.
    A. What time should we leave Alabang to be able to arrive in Legazpi so that we will have enough time to roam around the area.
    B. What time should we leave Cagsawa ruin area so that we will reach Matnog at a time (5am or 7am) when “regular” ferry schedules starts to operate?
    C. In the alternative, should we decide to skip the tour in Cagsawa, when are we suppose to arrive ideally in Matnog? Place to stay and eat dinner in Matnog? Activities to do in Matnog? Or would you rather have us take the first available ferry to Allen the moment we arrive in Matnog and stay in an Allen hotel for the night? Any hotel suggestion?

    2. I assume that we will reach Leyte around 12noon more or less after crossing San Juanico Bridge from Allen.
    A. How is the road condition for this segment of the journey.
    B. Any suggestion where to eat for lunch where we can also wash up?
    C. What are our available options going to Cebu in terms of which port to take the ferry ride? Main criteria is frequency and regularity of available trips to Cebu (would you know the specific time) then next consideration will be the the travel time to Cebu.

    3. From Cebu, we intend to go to Bohol. Should we decide to skip Cebu for this segment, which port in Leyte should we go to for us to go to Bohol directly. Same considerations in 2C above.

    Thank you very much for your time and Happy Holidays!
