LAOAG CITY, April 6 – Time to get rid of your outdated, creased tourist map and replace it with the new directory featuring the most sought out facts from food, transportation and accommodation in Ilocos Norte.
Produced by the provincial government, the Ilocos Norte directory is part of a marketing pitch for Ilocos tourism focusing on places of interest around the province.
The release of the Ilocos Norte directory is in time for droves of tourists who will visit the province for the Lenten break and throughout the summer season.
Ilocos Norte Gov. Imee Marcos has woven the province’s tourism promotion into a marketing plan called “Paoay Kumakaway” project. The tourism campaign focuses on select tourist destinations but made the town of Paoay as its launching pad.
Marcos also developed a Metro Ilocos tourism plan revolving around the town’s tourism centerpiece, the world heritage St. Augustine Church or Paoay Church.
The new directory incorporates an updated list of restaurants and fast food outlets and their contact numbers for easier access. The list includes accommodation facilities from hotels, lodgings, inns and resorts.
The fact list comes in handy to tourists and the general public who are in search of public transport either by air or on land. (ANL/CCA-PIA 1 Ilocos Norte)
