Barricade Gives Bad Impression

BADOC, Ilocos Norte (Aug. 24) – The first sight at the welcome arch site of Ilocos Norte in this town should be pleasing to the eyes and not barricade for animal quarantine, advertising billboards of fast foods, police detachment and unmanned info center. Visiting noted architect Jun Palafox said the military-like barricade gives a bad impression when tourists and visitors enter the boundary of Ilocos Sur and Ilocos Norte. Palafox, accompanied by Governor Imee Marcos, was here to fast track the tourism master plan of the province.
