Puerto Princesa to open more tourist attractions
More tourist attractions in Puerto Princesa City will be opened to the public soon . This is a possibility as the City Tourism Office is keen on developing marine tourism sites in its three northeastern barangays, namely Maruyogon, Manalo, and Lucbuan. Recently, sites assessments had been conducted to identify potential attractions and activities they could offer. Relatedly, the City Tourism Office also planned to open two additional firefly watching sites in Nagsagipi River found within the boundary of Barangays Salvacion and Sta. Cruz, and also in San Carlos River in Barangay Bacungan . The initiatives are part of the city government’s overall tourism expansion program, which primarily targets barangays with no existing tourism destinations. It also aims to decongest the city’s commonly visited sites, so as to preserve its ecological integrity.
