Cebuano Cebuano English English Filipino Filipino

In order to prepare local officials for implementing specific tourist programs, the Department of Tourism (DOT) has been meeting with mayors and tourism officers in Eastern Visayas through the “Infinite Upgrades: Tourism Governance Executive Masterclass.”

DOT Eastern Visayas Regional Director Karina Rosa Tiopes stated that the week-long masterclass was just held in Tagaytay City last week and that similar events for other local authorities will be held in the coming months.

“This is a personal training session. Our speakers assisted them in comprehending their present circumstances and connecting them to their goals and vision with regard to tourism in order to use them as motivation. In order to develop clusters of diverse tourism services, they have also grasped the value of cooperation and coordination with neighboring towns and provinces, Tiopes said in an interview on Wednesday.

The program gives mayors and tourism officers a general overview of their important tasks and how they may promote tourism growth and management in their specific areas of responsibility.

She continued, “We have invited governors and mayors who have fared well in terms of tourism development to speak to share their experiences.

The National Tourism Act of 2009, according to Tiopes, urges local governments to see to it that they create and implement a tourism development plan, uphold standards, and gather statistical data for tourism-related objectives.

The back-to-back training and benchmarking also aim to establish and promote the Philippine tourism quality seal, instill in our local officials the value of DOT accreditation, and educate them on the ASEAN tourism standards and the new progressive accreditation system.

The region includes the cities of Baybay, Borongan, Calbayog, Catbalogan, Maasin, Ormoc, and Tacloban, the regional capital of the Eastern Visayas, as well as the provinces of Biliran, Eastern Samar, Leyte, Northern Samar, Samar, and Southern Leyte.

The Kalanggaman Island, San Juanico Bridge, Leyte Landing Memorial, Sambawan Island, Biliran, dive spots in Southern Leyte, Calicoan Island, Eastern Samar, Sohoton Cave, and Natural Park, and Biri Rock Formations in Northern Samar are a few of its well-known tourist attractions.

Compared to other tourist spots in the Philippines, the area is still largely undiscovered, but Tiopes said that has been progressively changing as interest in tourism that is purely natural has increased.

More and more tourists are coming to the area in search of its untamed coastlines and landscapes, hidden caverns and waterfalls, and intriguing histories.
