"Visit Bohol" Tourism Campaign for 2015 Launched

I personally enjoyed Bohol, year 2013 -
From Chocolate Hills, Tarsier Conservation Area, Tigbao Hanging Bridge, Billar Mahogany (Man-Made Forest), Butterfly Sanctuary, Loboc River Cruise, Prony the Python, Baclayon Church, Blood Compact Monument, Dauis Church and up to Danao Adventure Park.

The highlight of the trip was being able to convince myself to do the canyon swing - "The Plunge" at Danao Adventure Park where I was literally tied / wrap on a harness about 200m high then a motor holding the thick rope will throw you down... Yay!

At the end of the day, we just have to face our fear! I realized the advantage of being there for it also took us about 3.5 hours travel time (Panglao - Danao).

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. 

Launched under the leadership of Gov. Edgar Chatto, "Visit Bohol 2015" seeks to position the province as a top-notch tourist destination with its amazing natural attractions and 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, started yesterday until 11/JAN 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 a single-minded 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 our kababayans share our grief during the devastating catastrophe that hit our province, we now feel the surge of support as we pave the road to recovery and 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 be awed not 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 Bohol Travel Fair. 

Other partners for "Visit Bohol 2015" include the United States Agency for International Development through its Advancing Philippine Competitiveness Project (USAID-COMPETE), the Department of Tourism (DOT), the United Nations-World Tourism Organization (UN-WTO) and the Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA), plus local tourism businesses, Ms. Gloria Steele, USAID Mission Director for the Philippines, and DOT Secretary Ramon Jimenez Jr., who is also one of the keynote speakers, are among the many dignitaries at the event.

Bohol also partnered with AirAsia for year-round low fares for its Manila-Tagbilaran and Manila-Cebu flights to attract more visitors to the province. Also up for grabs are at least 60% discount on accommodations, tour packages and other travel essentials and various indigenous Boholano products. To provide entertainment, travel fair visitors will be serenaded by the heavenly voices of the world-famous Loboc Children's Choir, who will sing popular and classic music via a mini concert night for the duration of the 3-day event.
