By Jennifer Catan-Tilos

Dumaguete City (9 November) -- Homeowners in Negros Oriental with extra rooms in their houses are invited to provide accommodation to foreign tourists and earn under the Department of Tourism's (DOT) Homestay Program.

Interested homeowners may join the training on December 7-10, this year in Dumaguete City to ensure that tourists in the province get to experience the finest hospitality and share the Filipino family practice with them.
