ANCHOR - MICHAEL ESCOBAR: A travel blogger from Vigan prioritizes the promotion of the beautiful destinations in the province of Ilocos Sur as well as in the neighboring provinces. Seane Batin for the report.
REPORTER - SEANE BATIN: A travel blogger takes pride of the beautiful province of Ilocos Sur because of the exceptional view of the tourist destinations of each municipality. There are paradise-like beaches, pleasing rivers and waterfalls of the upland municipalities and the kindness of the people of Ilocos Sur. According to Edmar Guquib, he has chosen to promote the place where he grew up because he knows that there are many places in Ilocos Sur that are as good as (or better than) the tourist destinations of the other provinces.
ME - EDMAR GUQUIB: Here in Ilocos Sur, it is really different [because the community has a participation in the promotion of tourism.] The community is aware of their heritage. They know that their heritage and culture are their asset. That's why it is not just a simple tourist destination... the tourist destinations that you see around are part of the life of every Ilocano and Ilocos Sur residents. It's part of our daily living so it is really hard to take away from them... from us, Ilocanos.
Reporter: The likes of Edmar as a travel blogger has a big help in strengthening the tourism in Ilocos Sur. As a result of a strong tourism, more opportunities will open for the businessmen of the province and for the economy. Also, one of the advantages of this (blogging) is to show to the world the continuous progress of the province of Ilocos Sur and the preservation of the culture and traditions inherited from our ancestors by those living in the upland municipalities. ▬ end
