She said, this is attributed to the regular flight schedules from Manila to Basco and vice versa as well as those taking off from Tuguegarao City area.

“We believe that we have enough to offer not only the attraction and tourism products but also our traditional Ivatan games and cuisine and the increasing facilities such as hotels and restaurants,” she added.
While the tourism industry is going stronger, the local officials also conduct massive advocacy on eco-tourism and heritage preservation among local folks for them to conserve and preserve their rich culture and natural resources for future generation and further development.
