Living Asia airs Zambo Hermosa
Zamboanga City (September 26) -- Zamboanga, Asia's Latin City will be continuously featured in the Living Asia Channel, a 24-hour Asian travel and lifestyle channel, available through cable and beamed not only in Asia but in North America and other parts of the world.
The grand Zamboanga Hermosa Festival held in line with the feat of Nuestra Senora La Virgen del Pilar on October 12 will be the focus of the hourly presentation that started September 23.
Highlights of last year's weeklong Zamboanga Hermosa Festival including the city's interesting tourist attractions, people and culture are included in the showcase. The 2007 Hermosa Festival themed "Asia's Latin City…Alive!" will also be featured in the coming months.
Mayor Celso Lobregat expressed confidence that the exposure would help boost the city's campaign to lure investors and tourists to Zamboanga City, now branded as Asia's Latin City.
The present administration has intensified its promotional blitz to erase the misconception that Zamboanga City is a war torn area.
