The Department of Tourism elevated cultural and eco tourism in the new normal as these will heighten domestic travel amid the pandemic.
Tourism Secretary Bernadette Romulo-Puyat reiterated the DOT continues to promote Laguna as a safe and sustainable tourist destination. This strategy to highlight Laguna’s cultural and ecotourism sites was arrived at as the DOT Region 4-A prepares to launch the Green Corridor Initiative, its flagship domestic program.
Puyat said, “Laguna is the great outdoors we are looking for near Metro Manila. It’s rich in natural resources and cultural tourism products that most domestic travelers have been wanting to experience.”
The proposed tourism circuit and activities include the Tayak Nature, Adventure and Wildlife Park in Rizal; espasol making in the premises of the Nagcarlan Underground Cemetery, and the uraro and shoes making demonstration at the White House in Liliw.
