Mindanao Travel Expo

I swung by the Mindanao Travel Expo after doing my workout tonight to find some travel tour packages. The expo is being held at Davao Convention Center and there was an outdoor buffet dinner going on at the parking lot when I got there at past 6pm. People were lining up for the food and there was a calf being roasted on an open pit. I almost went over the fenced in area to line up and it took me a minute to realize that it was not the reason why I went there. Anyway, back to the real topic...

The travel expo showcases the best and the must-see destinations of Mindanao plus some areas in the Philippines. I was able to get some information regarding our upcoming trip somewhere in Luzon but was a bit disappointed that some of the stalls closed early.

I was pleasantly surprised to see that more and more Mindanao provinces are claiming their stake in the tourism industry. In the previous travel expos that I have attended, there were more Luzon and Visayas stakeholders. But now, I have seen from the expo that there are some quite interesting places to check out here in Mindanao which are nearer from my city.

So, for those who are planning to travel in and around the Philippines, check out the ongoing Mindanao Travel Expo at Davao Convention Center, Torres St., Davao City. The expo will last until August 22, 2009.

For my kababayans, huwag maging dayuhan sa sariling bayan! Suroy ta!
