PIA Press Release

Lakbay Norte goes to Cagayan

Tuguegarao City (1 February) -- Twenty (20) media travel practitioners from national dailies, local Chinese newspaper, in-flight magazines, travel bloggers and officials of the Norht Philippines Visitors Bureau (NPVB) were in the province recently for the Lakbay Norte from January 24-31, 2010.

Lakbay Norte will tour for eight days the following places by bus: Cagayan, Ilocos Norte, La Union, Baguio City, Pangasinan, Subic Bay, Tarlac, Pampanga to include Clark Free Port Zone.

In the Province of Cagayan, Lakbay Norte visited the Callao Caves Tourist Zone (Callao Cave Adventure), Piat Basilica Minore (Pilgrimage) and Visita Iglesia at Iguig, Alcala, Lallo, Camalaniugan and Pamplona. A formal dinner and press briefing was also held at Paseo Real last Monday, January 25 with Governor Alvaro T. Antonio and other officials.

Director Blessilda Diwa of the Department of Tourism (DOT) has expressed strong support to the private sector initiative by sponsoring some of the activities as well as promoting the event.

"DOT Region 2 believes that the Lakbay Norte will greatly encourage inter-regional travel considering that North Philippines is very accessible through good road network and with diverse and exceptionally beautiful destinations, products and services", Diwa added.

Lakbay Norte is timed during the pre-summer off-peak season to provide hype and timely release of news features which will be generated by the hosting of the travel writers prior to the travel season this year. The event is also expected to boost the promotion of North Philippines after the setbacks brought about by the recent typhoons that ravaged North Luzon. (PIA 2) [top]
