The Philippines, with its 7,100 islands, has so much more to offer, beyond our world renowned tourist destinations like Aklan’s Boracay Beach Resort, Puerto Princesa’s Underground River, Vigan’s Crisologo Street, Manila’s Fort Santiago etc.
We have over 1,400 Cities and Municipalities that probably has its own share of pristine beaches, historical sites, famous land marks and local attractions that do not get enough exposure. Perhaps we do not realize it, but just within our own town there
are places worth our visits, or just a few kilometers of travel, there are interesting destinations that we have not seen because we have not heard about it yet.
Often, when we think of travel, we look beyond what is in front of us. When we seek culture, we think we can find it elsewhere. And when we longed for recreation, we think it takes too much effort and expense to have it.
Here at TayoNa Pilipinas, we want to help change all that. The launch of the “VISIT MY BAYAN" National Search for Local Destinations, will bring out what each city/municipality has to offer. We will know hundreds of new and exciting local destinations unique
to each Region, Town, City or Municipality. As a result, one’s next travel might just be around the corner, or a simple cultural experience is waiting in the next town’s local museum, or an inexpensive but timely recreational escape will only
be outside one’s locality.
The search will also bring out the pride and heritage of the local residences in each particular region. Since the nomination will come from its own residences, during the campaigns, they will be encouraged to promote their own nomination coming from
their own cities/municipalities.
We want our Filipino brothers and the whole world for that matter to know that there are not only 7,100 islands in the Philippines but equally there are thousands of beautiful places and destinations we can truly be proud of.
