MAMBAJAO, Camiguin, March 31 (PIA) — As part of the preparation for the Panaad 2017 (a vow in exchange for a good life), the provincial government collaborated with the local government of Balingoan to facilitate the transportation needs of the commuters and tourists and conducted various meetings to provide better service during the Holy Week.
Candice Naome Dael, Camiguin provincial tourism officer said that this is an initiative of both local government units (LGUs) to control the expected congestion of people during the event and avoid traffic in the said area.
She also added that they have been conducting series of meetings with the task force for Panaad 2017 to make sure that the safety and enjoyment of the tourists and religious believers is secured.
In their preliminary agreements, Dael said that the ferry ticketing would be held in Balingoan Terminal so as to avoid traffic and people congestion on the streets.
“Unlike the previous years, people would have to get their ticket in the small area of Balingoan Port. And we received a lot of complaints about it that is why we looked for options to refrain such inconvenience,” Dael said.
The Camiguin Provincial Tourism Officer also works on the improvement and accessibility of various tourist destinations and resorts since a lot of participants of Panaad prefer to stay longer in the area for relaxation.(RTP/PIA10)
