The 18th Philippine Travel Mart, also known as “Sale ng Bayan” just opened this after at the Megatrade Halls, 5th flr. Bldg B of SM Megamall in Mandaluyong City. This was organized by the Philippine Tour Operators Association (PHILTOA) with global visions events and marketing network and various stakeholders in the travel industry.
This is a great way to save on your trips around the country 'cos the travel show promises bagsak presyo on airfares and travel deals. Well, there are more or less 160 companies who joined the said event, so you can compare prices, resort facilities and location in one setting. Just imagine travel deals up to 50% off!
SO, now is your chance to enjoy SAUD BEACH in Ilocos, who's listed as the top 10 Asia's Best Beach, the white sand beaches of Boracay, the wild rapids of Cagayan de Oro, the Rice Terraces or wander at the street of Vigan and see those old Spanish houses.
Well, the opening ceremony started around 1PM with a foot parade, then the Ceremonial banging of the gong, Invocation with DOT Regional Directors, National Anthem, Welcome address by Mayor Abalos, talks about Tourism, then the cultural show and so fort and so on. Sorry, but I went home early.
Anyways, what are you waiting for? Hurry and get your dream vacation. Or just walk around and know more about the Philippines. See you at the fair!
Here are some of the pictures I've taken at the Travel Mart:
