Tourism rebuilding efforts after Yolanda

The Department of Tourism and the Tourism Promotions Board have initiated the Bangon Tours Project in line with the government’s recovery and rebuilding efforts for the victims and survivors of calamities through the promotion of domestic tourism.

It is an invitation to the Filipino market to travel within the Philippines during the holiday period (December to February), visit our fun destinations, and participate in rebuilding efforts.

Some of the areas featured for Bangon Tours include Ilocos, Manila-Tagaytay, Puerto Princesa, Bicol, Cebu, Davao, Bohol, Iloilo, Boracay, Siargao, and Cagayan de Oro-Camiguin.

The first airline partner of Bangon Tours, CEB mounted humanitarian flights for stranded passengers in Tacloban and transported cargo to aid victims of Typhoon Yolanda.  It remains committed to assist in rehabilitation and tourism efforts with the launch of a special Bangon Tour seat sale in the coming weeks, promoting travel within the Philippines in its marketing materials.
