About Tacloban City
Tacloban City is the first city and also the first to be recognized as highly urbanized city in Eastern Visayas and in Region VIII. It was considered as the capital of the province of Leyte when it was still under the province. Known to be the “Home of the Waraynons” and the “Heart of Eastern Visayas”. The city of Tacloban is the gateway of Region VIII because of its large population and being in the center of the whole nation.
Due to the lack of information about Tacloban City, we had in mind to create a website that will serve as an information gateway, news, updates and current events and that is where Metrotacloban.com was born. MetroTacloban.com website went live on March 2009. Its primary purpose is to introduce Tacloban city’s local business, feature tourist attractions and promote tourism. From then on, the ball started rolling and up until now we’re still here to promote our own beloved city of Tacloban. You can explore and get information of the Tacloban from within the site. Know the people from the big names and little but good and talented individuals. Be updated from the events and latest news in the metro.
We also feature what’s in Leyte, Samar, Biliran and the whole Eastern Visayas.
