Biringan City: A Place Ruled By Shape-Shifting Demons?
The city's location is somewhat disputed, but many locals believe that it is located somewhere between Calbayog City and Catarman. Locals also warned newcomers or tourists in Samar. They claim that they should not talk about the city's existence and even mention its name. Why should they remain silent about Biringan? Because if someone mentions the city, he/she will be forcibly abducted by elementals through demonic possession.
The city is sometimes blamed for the demonic possessions of young women and children. Locals also claim that the city is ruled by demons pretending to be benevolent elementals. The locals also claim that the city's usual inhabitants have no philtrum, a sign of humanity, the line between the nose and lips. They advised that they should pray when they get lost in their way to protect themselves from possession and to avoid abduction by these shape-shifting beings. The stories of locals somewhat paint a grim picture of the city. Is it a false paradise? Some people would disagree.
