Leyte and Mati,Davao Aggressive Moves in Tourism

Monday, July 19, 2010

The move of Leyte and Mati, Davao to grab a chunk of the local and international market by developing infrastructure is a welcome development.

Leyte has been receiving a lot of inquiries for events but is not able accommodate it because of lack of facilities. Currently, it has an existing convention center owned by the government that can house 3,000 people. In Tacloban, the highly urbanized area of Leyte there is only 870 rooms. Indeed improvement in infrastructure is badly needed in order to attract MICE activities.

One of the famous tourist spot in Leyte is the Mac-Arthur Shrine.

Mati, Davao on the other hand boasts a virgin nature comparable to Palawan. There are also a lot of beaches in Davao that tourists are already visiting. It has Pujada Bay and Dahican beach, a beach is favourable for surfing.

Both these provinces need investors and their aggressive moves are positive signs that these two places will be a MICE hub and tourist magnet in the coming months.
