What are the Poorest Provinces in the Philippines?


Recommended Posts

I have visited Samar ... Daram and Catbalogan. It's quite poor, but the people there still manage to live their lives...shop, go to school, etc. It must be hard, though.

I was in Samar before, on a road trip.

 

As far as I know, its statistically the poorest province.

 

However, I quite liked it. Its very underdeveloped, and some beautiful jungle around.

 

Its poor as the people live a very simple life. No tv's, laptops etc, just a hut & a field.

 

The villages are just like any other.

 

The road on the eastern side is in the worst state of repair iv ever seen though. Only for the big 4X2 tyres I would have been extremely slow.

My wife says they have an expression about the Somar people. Because of their high-pride and pridefull-boasting, which is why they are always so poor and attacking eachother with machetes. That the area has the reputation for being a nest of fake-faithhealer and black-magic peddlers.
