Top Taiwan cable crew shoots Davao

Davao City (11 January) -- A six-man crew of top-rated SET TV from Taiwan was just in Davao City and neighboring Island Garden City of Samal to shoot local scenes for a Philippine documentary.

Frank Villareiz, senior tourism officer of the Department of Tourism (DOT) based in Davao City, said the group visited the Philippine Eagle center, Luz Kinilaw, Colasa’s Ihaw-ihaw, a durian farm, and resorts on the Island Garden City of Samal including Pearl Farm.

SET TV is a top-rated cable show, mostly watched by outbound Taiwanese travelers between the ages 35 and 40 years old.

Villareiz said the group is now in General Santos City and Lake Sebu.

He said their interest in the area is the tuna industry and the T’boli tribe.

“The group is focusing on culture and local color such as unique practices, scenery and festivals,” he said.

He said the TV crew prefers to stay with a host family for better coverage.

From Sarangani province, he said the crew will proceed to the Ati-atihan Festival in Kalibo, Aklan and the beaches of Boracay.

The documentary was made possible by the Manila Economic and Cultural Office Tourism Center based in Taipei, Taiwan and DOT regional offices.

He said the documentary will be shown in Taiwan through the Philippine Convention and Visitors Corporation, the marketing arm of the DOT. (PIA/pdb) [top]
