Security measures are now in place to ensure the safety and security of tourists in Iloilo City this summer season.
According to the Iloilo City Police Police (ICPO), the metropolis remained a safe place for both local and foreign visitors.
ICPO Deputy Chief for Operations Mercilyn Duero said they increased police visibility in malls, transport terminals, churches, hotels, and tourist destinations, among others.
“We put up Police Assistance Desks (PADs) there,” she said.
Iloilo City is known for its well-preserved heritage sites and delectable food. Its museums and art galleries also entice tourists.
