Why not?

“Why not?” This is the first thing that came up to my mind when I saw this photo on Facebook.

It may be ambitious but it doesn’t have to be like that. The implication that I extracted from this photo is that perhaps the government specifically the Department of Tourism Region 10 should take bolder steps to attract more tourists. There are still plenty of breath taking destinations in this part of the country waiting to be discovered. It is just that Northern Mindanao’s tourism remains silent in terms of promotion compared to Cebu, Davao, Iloilo, Palawan, CamSur, and Boracay.

We should engage on an intensified awareness program, come up with an image building campaign, and reach the most number of people. With our timeless tourist attractions, no doubt that we can be a top and most preferred tourist destination. We should invite the world to visit Northern Mindanao.
