Early this month, Moto Tourism Council (MTC) joined in the celebration in La Union – Poro Point’s Sillag Festival 2018 by forming a unity ride that started in Manila and ended with a luncheon treat at the baywalk of Poro Point Freeport Zone. A total of 17 members participated in the unity ride from Manila showing the joy and safety fun of motorcycling trip plus the beauty of the various provinces that they have passed by.

Department of Tourism (DOT) Secretary Wanda Corazon Tulfo Teo has approved the formation of the Moto Tourism Council (MTC) that will draft the Moto Tourism campaign plan aimed at boosting motorcycle travel in the country, and eventually generate additional revenues for the tourism sector. A thrust that Assistant Secretary Frederick Alegre himself supports, since he is a rider himself. According to him, the MTC is aimed to show not only the beauty of certain parts of the country but the entirely of it. From Luzon to Mindanao, using the Philippine Nautical Highway, motorcycle riders can now enjoy a trip to any point in the country.

The La Union unity trip aims to promote not only the beauty and safety of proper motorcycle riding but also the possibilities of the being developed Freeport Zone. Joining the unity ride were Manuel Jose, Christpher Pedrosa, Chris Franco, Alvin Aggregado, James Selenio, Raffy Escano, Bobbit Tongco, Miggy Tongco, JT Lansangan, Peter Lansangan and Peter Barrientos, to name a few.

Arriving during the second day of the Sillag Festival celebration, La Union was awaken by the number of riders passing by the main road of the province before ending at the Freeport Zone. The weather was so endearing that it was both sunny and windy at that time. Met by the Highway Patrol team and that of the PNP, the site of riders being accompanied was a sight to behold, elevating the curiosity of the people on what is there to see that day at the celebration ground. With bikes and riders, a riding spectacle was created for the people of La Union and that of Poro Point. Participants of the ride were then treated to an all Filipino luncheon spread prepared by the PPMC Poro Point Management Corporation headed by Dir Warly Guerra, Chairman of Investment Committee. Dir Guerra gave the guests a briefing of the investment opportunities in Poro Point Freeport Zone. He also seeked the help of the businessmen to help in promoting PPFZ as investment destination.

Not only did the MTC did the unity ride but they also started the Parade of Lights celebration and took the time to display their various bikes for people to see and take pictures with; something that bike riders, bike enthusiasts and fans took delight that day in the festival.

With this simple exhibition of motorcycling experience, riders can now travel and enjoy in their own pace the trip of doing a point-to-point tour of the country, promoting road and motorcycling safety and the scenic view of the place. No small thanks to the thrust of the Department of Tourism in looking into the various ways that people can truly explore the country.

It's More Fun In The Philippines

Bago ako maglunch, nabalitaan ko na may presscon ang Department of Tourism dahil ilalabas nila ang bagong slogan para maka-engganyo ng mas marami pang turista.

Hindi ko akalain na makikita ko na ang slogan pagkatapos ko kumain ng lunch. 10am po ang lunch ko kaya yung iba, hindi pa nanananghalian.

Ok, excited na ba kayo? Hindi ako makakuha ng magandang picture ng Slogan kaya nagnakaw na lang ako sa mga friends ko sa internet. Eto ang picture na kuha ni Erika Tapalla. Follow her on Twitter.

“It’s more fun in the Philippines” will be the international campaign.
“1 for fun” will be the internal, national campaign.

Magandang slogan ito. Wala pa akong masabi dahil hindi pa ako nakakakita ng pinagkopyahan. In a few days siguro, maglalabasan ang critics pero sa ngayon, magsasaya na muna ang lahat.

Ang saya nga ng Twitter feed ko dahil astig ang mga sinasabi ng iba’t ibang personality sa Twitter.

Nilabas rin nga pala nila ang link sa bago nilang website. Bisitahin mo na bago pa magdown dahil sa overwhelming traffic. Click Here.

Mas masaya talaga sa Pinas. Sure ako na magiging atat na sa paguwi ang ating mga kababayan na OFW.
