Personally, I haven't been in Bohol but I have heard so much good things about it. I heard that the natural wonders like the Chocolate Hills, seeing the tarsiers and also the food in Bohol is really a must try. I am really honored to be part of this event and for sure this 2015 I will have my own adventure in Bohol!
Makati City, Philippines - The province of Bohol shows how it defiantly rose from the rubble as it introduces "Visit Bohol 2015," a year-round tourism campaign that aims to revitalize its image and entice more visitors to come to Bohol.
Under the leadership of Gov. Edgar Chatto, this event seeks to position Bohol as a top-notch tourist destination with its amazing natural attractions and also its friendly and honest people.
The tourism campaign kicked off via a three-day Bohol Travel Fair at the Glorietta Activity Center in Makati City last January 11 to 13 2015. Organized by the Bohol Provincial Tourism Council Inc. under Atty. Lucas Nunag, the travel fair gathered together all major players in the Bohol tourism sector with an objective of providing a strong boost to Bohol's tourism industry.
"For years, Bohol has always been in the hearts of every Filipino, not only as an eco-cultural tourism landmark but as a home to a number of our country's pride. As we felt how out kababayans share our grief during the devastating catastrophe that hit out provice, we now feel the surge of support as we pave the road to recovery to come back in the tourism map. With Visit Bohol 2015, expect a much better and bolder Bohol - ready to welcome all of you to our beautiful province. We invite you to visit and we awed bot just by the wonderful sited Bohol has to offer, but also by the endearing graciousness, hospitality and trustworthiness of Boholanos," says Governor Chatto during the opening ceremonies of the event.
