Zamboanga City once again captivated visitors and guests, most of whom are travel enthusiasts, at this year’s Philippine Travel Mart which ran from September 5-7 at the SMX Convention Center, Mall of Asia.

The city’s nature-inspired exhibit featuring the picturesque Merloquet Falls and a fabricated waterfall pond, bagged second place in the Best Booth for City and Municipality Category. A total of 26 participating local government units were in contention for top honors.

Zamboanga’s booth was one of the most visited and photographed at the trade fair, clearly a favorite among visitors and guests who were fascinated by the creativity of the display and amazed by the richness of the city’s culture.

The wonderful performances of the Jambangan Dance Troupe also added flavor to the city’s trade show to the fascination of the crowd.

This year’s stint at the Philippine Travel Mart marks the third travel award for the city after bagging second honors in 2012 and third last year.
