Int'l tour operator lauds tourism potentials of Region 8

Tacloban City (October 1) -- Mr. Francisco Atayde, Jr., the proprietor and manager of the La Viajera Travel and Tours in Manila, extolled the tourism potentials of Region 8 even as he praised the natural beauty of the countryside.

Rotarian Atayde was with some Rotarians from Manila who together with the sister club Rotary Club of Kandaya conducted a Medical Mission in Dulag, Leyte . The group also conducted another medical and dental mission in partnership of the Rotary Club of Borongan, Eastern Samar at the municipality of Llorente , also in Eastern Samar .

Having had the chance to see the countryside of Region 8, Atayde who is an international travel and tour operator said that there is so much that the Region can contribute to the Tourism Industry of the country even as he volunteered to help in the promotion of the tourism industry of the Region with in the country and also abroad.

Mr. Atayde who is the President of the Rotary Club of Pasay Illustrado, was guest of the joint meeting of the Rotary Clubs of Kandaya, San Juanico, Tacloban and Leyte Gulf last week, where he campaigned for the attendance of the local Rotarians to the forthcoming Rotary International Convention in Salt Lake City Utah on June 17 -20, 2007.

He said that the Rotarians themselves can promote the tourism industry of the Region whenever they attend Rotary gatherings. Their attendance at the Rotary International Convention may also serve as a promotions and marketing mission for the tourism industry of the Region.

The mere presence of Rotarians coming from Region 8, in the Rotary International Convention will already make the Rotarians from other countries curious about Region 8, Atayde said.

It is actually not the place alone which make people come, more important is the people. Having acquaintances in a particular place, is a plus factor for people from other places to visit a certain place.

In the case of Rotarian Atayde and his group, they decided to come to Region 8 because of the Rotarians. (PIA 8) [top]
