mayontrail2-660x440LEGAZPI CITY, Philippines—The province of Albay pulled all the stops in hosting a major tourism conference in this city, sprucing up the city airport with what looks like a showroom of the province’s finest pieces of furniture and showing conference participants what ecotourism really is all about.
As visitors step into the province through the airport, they were greeted with a VIP lounge set up by the provincial government to welcome at least 500 international tourism players taking part in the Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) New Frontier Forum that would last until today at the Oriental Hotel.
“We are ready,” said Gov. Joey Salceda.
The forum adopted the theme “Ecotourism: Transcending Climate Change.”
The airport’s new “abaca lounge” is designed for participants of PATA, the first such event to be hosted by the Albay provincial government in partnership with the Department of Tourism (DOT).
