Samar’s inclusion in travel map to improve tourism
TACLOBAN CITY — The United Tourist Promotions, publisher of EZ Maps, will release for the first time a map showing the major tourist destinations in Samar province.
Karina Rosa Tiopes, regional director of the Department of Tourism, said this would boost tourism development in the province.
Among the six provinces in Eastern Visayas, only Leyte and Biliran have so far been included in EZ Maps.
Ms. Tiopes said the Tourism department and the Philippine Information Agency have created a team that is assisting the publisher in selecting and documenting the featured destinations. Map area validation is targeted to be completed this week.
