More or less one-hundred employees from the provincial government of Davao de Oro availed the “Capitours,” a two-day free tour to the three (3) tourism loops in the province initiated by the provincial government’s tourism office headed by Senior Tourism Office Christine Dompor.
The initiative is part of the province’s celebration of Tourism Month 2022, in partnership with various tourism sites in the locality and with the support of Governor Dorothy Montejo-Gonzaga. The 2-day tour covered three tourism loops in Davao de Oro: Wellness Loop, Highlands to Valley Loop, and the Coastal Loop.
According to Tourism Head Christine Dompor, the capitours aim to market quality experience and services that travel destinations offer province-wide. The initiative initially marked the launching of Davao de Oro’s tourism loops, which resulted in multiple positive outcomes in terms of tourism promotions and the generation of jobs for the locals.
Among the destinations covered by the tour were D’ Fortees Nature and Adventure Park, Febrish Cold Spring Resort, J&N Cabunas View Deck and Spring Resort for the Highland to Valley Loop; Bilawa Hot Waterfalls, Lake Leonard, Tambo Cafe, and Tagbibinta Falls for the Wellness Loop; and Dusit Thani Lubi Plantation Resort, Seaworld Oasis and Waterworld for the Coastal Loop.
According to the tourism office, the tour promotions are an avenue toward more tourism returns to the province. Further, in partnership with the national government agencies, the office will soon hold pieces of training to capacitate locals whose areas have potential tourism spots.
