Intramuros presents Southern Tagalog’s Eco-tourism and Beach Holiday Destinations
July 03, 2005

Encenada Beach Resort Puerto GaleraPristine waters, lush green forests, powdery white sand beaches with rich marine life are among the things to watch for when Southern Tagalog region (Region IV) showcases the Great Outdoor Adventure for the Philippines’ Bests! with Eco-tourism and Beach Holidays as the theme on July 8-31, 2005.

The grand opening of Region IV’s Great Outdoor Adventure is scheduled on July 08, 2005 at 5p.m. Clamshell 1, Intramuros, Manila. The event will be graced by Tourism Secretary Ace Durano, Senator Bong Revilla, members of the diplomatic corps, and officials from the local government units.

The DoT hospitality pavilion will be the centerpiece structure of the regional showcase that will feature wellness and spa salon set in a beach setting that will be decorated by Fuego Hotels.

Five smaller structures will surround the main pavilion to be connected by a board walk. White sands will be spread out together with palm/coconut trees to emulate a beach front. All the five built as cottages will showcase the different tourism products of MIMARO (Mindoro Oriental, Mindoro Occidental, Marinduque and Romblon) and CALABARZON (Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal and Quezon). The July exhibition is packaged by the DOT-Region IV with Director Louella Jurilla at the helm.

Thirty nine concession booths inside the exhibit area will sell delicacies, arts and crafts, as well as tourism products and services from the region. A lecture series on eco-tourism and success stories in environment preservation will enhance the theme of protecting the environment.

Tourism Secretary Joseph Ace Durano said that Region IV’s showcase will not only be entertaining but also educational as it offers a daily lecture on eco-tourism and bio-diversity.

“It is everyone’s responsibility to take care of the environment because once neglected there will be nothing left for us to experience the bounty of nature,” Durano said, “Understanding the importance of nature to us, and appreciating its gifts will make one realize the need to protect and preserve it from extinction and destruction.”

Other activities lined-up by the provinces of the Southern Tagalog region are: craft demonstrations, travel fair, onstage concerts, fashion shows, cultural event and exciting outdoor activities.
