Prepared locations for the “Spark Samar” drive: Calbayog City

Samar’s Calbayog City is getting ready to join the “Spark Samar” tourism initiative, according to the mayor of the city on Friday.

According to Mayor Raymund Uy, the city has a functioning airport that serves travelers heading to Cebu and Manila as well as a seaport that frequently travels to Cebu, facilitating easier access for tourists.

“We view tourism as an engine of economic prosperity. We simply need to upgrade our tourist destinations. We requested assistance from the Department of Tourism in developing travel packages as one of our first steps, according to Uy.

Tarangaban Falls, Malajog Beach, Ridge Nature Park and Zipline, and Samar Archaeological Museum are just a few of its traveler-friendly attractions.

According to Uy, the “Spark Samar” tourism campaign has not included Calbayog City landmarks in the past due to the political climate.

The “Spark Samar” tourist campaign, which was started in 2015, intends to reveal the province’s beauty and dispel the misconception that it is prone to disaster, poverty, and conflict.

By encouraging and enhancing communities’ active participation in directing tourist-related activities in their particular locations, the campaign leverages tourism as a catalyst in solving the issue.

Karina Rosa Tiopes, director of the Department of Tourism’s Eastern Visayas region, praised the municipal administration for embracing tourism as a catalyst for inclusive growth.

“Calbayog City is getting ready for some exciting times as they step up their efforts to boost tourism. We got together to talk about how to strengthen Calbayog’s tourism team, the responsibilities of each team member, the realities and difficulties of the industry, the landscape and value chain of tourism, as well as the tourism objectives we all hope to accomplish in the near future, Tiopes said in an earlier statement.

The entrance to Samar province is Calbayog, the sixth-largest city in terms of land and sea areas in the Philippines.

Calbayog, known as the “City of Waterfalls,” now contains a total of 22 waterfalls that have been verified by the regional tourism office.

There are planes that land in the city directly from Manila and Cebu. Buses that travel to Calbayog from Manila for a full day are also available.

The city is located 172 kilometers north of the region’s capital, Tacloban.
