Kauna-unahang Tourist Rest Area sa Bohol, pinasinayaan ng DOT

MANILA, Philippines – Pormal nang itinurn-over ng Department of Tourism sa probinsya ng Bohol ang sarili at pinakauna nitong Tourist Rest Area (TRA).

Ang TRA ay magseserbisyo sa mga turista na dadaan sa bayan ng Dauis, na nagsisilbing gateway patungo sa iba’t ibang tourist destinations sa probinsya gaya ng Alona Beach sa Panglao, Virgin Island Sandbar, Balicasag Island, at Baclayon Church.

Ang Dauis, isa sa dalawang munisipalidad na nakasasakop sa Panglao island, ay tahanan din ng iba’t ibang pang mga pasyalan gaya ng Hinagdanan Cave, Our Lady of the Assumption Church, Bikini Beach, Bingag Beach, at San Isidro Beach.

“Here in Bohol, we view this gem of an island to be a source of national pride because you have, by your work, and by your example, established a sustainable eco-tourism destination where the public and private sector work hand in hand. And as a result of this initiative, you are now globally renowned as the Philippines’ very first UNESCO Global Geopark,” pahayag ni DOT Secretary Christina Frasco kasabay ng TRA inauguration.

“I congratulate all of you, all of our officials, including our governor for this monumental achievement,” dagdag pa niya.

Pinuri naman ni Bohol 1st District Rep. Edgardo Chatto ang ginawang ito ni Frasco sa tourism industry.

“Maybe it’s small for some, but it is big in terms of impact to the entire tourism industry,” ani Chatto.

“Once you have these Tourist Rest Areas in many areas of the country, I am pretty sure that domestic as well as international travelers will really be amazed at the readiness of the country,” dagdag pa niya.

Welcome development naman para kay Governor Erico Aristotle Aumentado ang turnover sa kauna-unahang TRA sa probinsya.

“As we continue to recover from the effects of the pandemic, we are entering a phase in which we must diversify our offerings for our guests and introduce our island paradise as more than just the white sand beaches of Panglao to the rolling slopes of Chocolate Hills,” sinabi ni Aumentado sa mensaheng binasa ni Provincial Administrator Aster Caberte.

“I could say that the Department of Tourism and TIEZA have chosen the best strategic location for the tourist area since our municipality is located in the sweet spot, which is the middle of Tagbilaran City and municipality of Panglao,” pahayag naman ni Dauis Mayor Roman Bullen kasabay ng turnover ceremony.
