The City Tourism and Development Office (CTDO) is reviving a cultural practice to raise tourism awareness especially among front line workers.
CTDO encouraged employees of tourism-oriented establishments in Iloilo City to join JOYRIDE TA!
JOYRIDE TA! is a “free guided rolling tour program to introduce the participants to the different tourism sites and the history of Iloilo.”
“This will also prepare the tourism front liners of the upcoming tourism events in our City like Dinagyang Festival and Paraw Regatta,” CTDO said.
Tourism front liners include, among others, receptionists, waiters, sales ladies.
“Taxi drivers, tour van drivers, and even barangay officials are welcome to join,” CTDO said.
One hundred fifty slots are available for the first phase of the program.
Those interested to join should contact CTDO at (033) 320-7581.
Joyride, according to CTDO, “is a part of Ilonggo Culture to have a leisurely ride on board jeepneys just to do sightseeing around the city.”IMT
