The locals of Samar find every reason to celebrate with their warmth and inherent optimism in life. The Parayang Harvest Festival is a time of great joy for those who live in San Roque as it symbolizes life and wealth. The Embajada Festival on the other hand is an event that is celebrated in different ways by the several towns that make up Samar. The height of Samar festivals start near the end of the 1st quarter so it’s a good idea to schedule trips to this region on these months.
Sipaway Island and Sipalay Beach although they sound the same are two different Bacolod destinations that will allow you to bask in the sun the whole day should you decide to, or engage in several water sports all in one day. Beaches are among the favorite Bacolod destinations because of the untainted water, diverse marine life, accessibility from the city and the warmth exuded by the locals.
