BM Onda urges Palaweños to patronize local tourist spots
Palawan Sangguniang Panlalawigan Board Member Sharon Abiog-Onda urged the Palaweños to patronize the tourist spots in various local government units amid the prevailing Modified General Community Quarantine in the province.
While the province is still under MGCQ, she said that Palaweños should visit local tourist spots as traveling outside the province is still not allowed.
Ondsa serves as the Vice Chairman of the Committee on Cultural Heritage and Tourism Development .
She said that it is also an opportunity for Palaweños to appreciate the beauty of the province, who was recently named the best island in the world.
“It’s really time to appreciate our local tourist spots, kasi noong mga nakaraang panahon, talagang ang inaabangan natin ay promo fares papunta sa iba’t-ibang lugar, sa iba’t-ibang bansa. Ito ‘yong panahon natin para ma-appreciate yong nandito lamang sa ating probinsya o maging kahit lamang sa bayan natin” said BM Onda.
Just recently, Palawan province was named ‘Best Island in The World’ by the international publication ‘Travel + Leisure’ magazine.
“Narerecognize ang Palawan worldwide, hindi lang buong Pilipinas. So, madali ‘yong muling pag-aanyaya, muling pagbubukas ng turismo kung sakaling payagan na, kung sakaling safe na, kung sakaling medyo pababa na ‘yong kaso ng COVID-19” she said.
