The ship was brought inland by the storm surge of Yolanda, which killed several thousand people and destroyed/damaged several towns and Tacloban City. The ship has been mostly salvaged and only the bow is left as a reminder of the fury of typhoon Yolanda.

This place is a shrine and a memorial. Tourists seem to forget that when they go here. I was appalled when I saw 'rowdy' tourists happily taking pictures and selfies. They weren't the least bit respectful or even mindful of what the place actually is....More

This ship was thrown up by a 7 metre surge during Typhoon Yolanda, It crushed several people and landed in a residential area, many metres from the bay. It has been left here as a reminder of the severity of Yolanda.

Serious and humbling display of the power of mother nature. Words cannot describe; you need to see it to truly 'feel' it.
