Cagayan de Oro City has won the bidding over Iloilo City by a slim margin of four votes in hosting the 5th National Convention of Tour Guides. The bidding was held during the 4th national convention in Laoag City.
The convention is set on June 2014. It is a very timely event as installation of navigational equipment of Laguindingan Airport is expected to be completed on May. By then, our new airport would already be capable of accommodating night flights.
This national convention would boost Cagayan de Oro and Northern Mindanao’s tourism industry even further. With the presence of so many tourist spots in this part of Mindanao like the white water rafting of Cagayan de Oro and Camiguin, there is no doubt that Northern Mindanao has emerged as one of the top tourist destinations of the Philippines today.
