    Philippines is equal to ferrys and going btw the islands is pretty easy and cheap.
    Several ferry lines travels from Cebu and Southern Leyte and the easiest port to access is Maasin. (the other two being Batu and Hilongos) Prices are similar but since you most likely going to Maasin the extra travel time in Jeepneys is well worth the extra pesos:)

    Tickets can will be bought in many places in Cebu and at the ferry terminal in Maasin, price in economy was in june 2010 280 p + 12 p terminal fee and travel time is just over 6 hours.

    Ferrys are clean apart from toilets which could be much of an adventure (bring u own toilet paper)

    Transportation to Maasin.

    by bjrsdad Updated Jul 15, 2006

    Getting to maasin is easy from Manila. From the international terminal, you get on a (Cebu Pacific) shuttle bus to the domestic terminal. Cebu Pacific Airlines, is the best way to get to the Leyte, Province ( 100 dollars for round trip). From Tacloban , Leyte you need to take either a private taxi ( 60-80 dollars U.S.) or to the bus terminal (1 dollar). Then take a van or bus to Maasin (10 dollars)
    The trip to Maasin is not for the faint of heart. Your trip will take you down a 2 lane road, with houses on both sides of the road(@ 50 or 60 miles p/h). It takes you though mountains along rice patties and coastlines (very beuatiful). People, dogs ,goats , and caraboo, will be crossing the road. Also on the road will be bicycle and motorcycle taxi's, Big trucks and buses. In the philippines the lines on the road do not mean much. My taxi driver passed trucks on hills, went between motorcycles, almost hit a goat and used his horn more than I have in my lifetime.

    One of the Ferries

    If you're going there, Chances are you're coming from a different city as there are no direct flights to the town. You can either take ferries from Cebu to Maasin or the neighboring towns or a flight from Manila to Tacloban and then a 4 hour drive from there. The ferries from Cebu are never frequent, and only a few times a week if you're planning to go there, make sure you have enough time to allow yourself a day or two to come back to Cebu for your flight back.
