Basey Town

Situated in the Samar side just opposite of Tacloban City in the Leyte side. Here are some photographs I have of Basey circa March 2012. I went through these pictures again thinking about the super typhoon Yolanda devastation in this mat weaving industry town.


Local transportation known as 'single' or habal-habal


Banig products store


Banig making is an old industry of Basey


Beautiful Basey banig


Pedicab as local transportation
