Caraga urged to tap tourism boom in CV

The Region 7 office of the Department of Tourism (DoT 7) has urged tourism stakeholders in Caraga Region to tap the booming tourism industry in Central Visayas to further promote the culture, destinations, and adventure offerings of Region 13.
DoT 7 Director Dawnie Roa, who led a contingent of tour operators for a familiarization tour of Caraga Region, said the Mindanao should take advantage of Cebu’s popularity, which she described as the gateway to southern Philippines.

“Let’s develop Caragal; Mindanao needs to be promoted and pushed (so) let’s link up,” said Roa during the fellowship with tour operators of Caraga Region, a new region in Mindanao composed of the provinces of Agusan del Norte, Agusan del Sur, Surigao del Norte and Surigao del Sur and Dinagat Islands

Roa said Cebu now has 384 domestic and 68 international flights weekly, reaching nearly all of the areas of the country, including regular flights to Butuan City, Caraga’s regional center. “We look forward to having strong cooperation between our two regions and tie up to propel Caraga,” said Roa.

The familiarization tour, which started Friday last week, provides a venue for Caraga tour operators to interact with Cebu tour operators and discuss the different destinations and tourism offerings of Caraga.

The Cebu tour operators, Roa said, can include Caraga region in their tour packages offered to international and domestic tourists coming to Cebu and other destinations around Central Visayas. (Manila Bulletin)
