Culture and Arts of Leyte


Tattoo as Artwork
16th century Chinese artwork on the "Pintados". Leyte Island and the rest of Eastern Visayas was then inhabited by people with tattoo-covered bodies. Modern-day Leytenos dress up for the annual Pintados Festival.

Dance Imitates Life
The Tinikling Dance, which originated from Leyte, used to be the Philippine National Dance. The dance imitates the movements of the "Tikling" bird. Tinikling is the most famous Philippine dance in the world.



Travel Quotes:

We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time. T. S. Eliot

It is better to travel well than to arrive. Buddha

Northern Philippine Cuisine

For festive occasions, people band together and prepare more sophisticated dishes. Tables are often laden with expensive and labor-intensive treats requiring hours of preparation. In Filipino celebrations, lechón (also spelled litson) serves as the centerpiece of the dinner table. It is usually a whole roasted pig, but suckling pigs (lechonillo, or lechon de leche) or cattle calves (lechong baka) can also be prepared in place of the popular adult pig.
