I like the Palo / Tacloban area because of the history that abounds there. Palo is the site of where General Douglas MacArthur returned in 1944 to fulfill his promise to the people of the Philippines. MacArthur Park is beautiful, and has a great monument with statues to commemorate the event. Douglas MacArthur is still painted on huge murals all over the area.
