The City Tourism Office is in the process of profiling man-made and natural attractions to identify the tourist spots in this city.

City Tourism Officer Sarita Sebastian-Hernandez said Friday the profiling is set to be completed in June, this year.

Hernandez said they have so far completed the profiling of more than 10 man-made and natural attractions in the different barangays.

It includes the Merloquet Falls in Barangay Sibuglao located 80 kilometers east of City Hall and the Greater Sta. Cruz Island.

This city consist of 98 barangays, eight of which are island villages.

“The reason why we are doing this (profiling), we want to do the profile of the different tourist spots in Zamboanga City and eventually, be able to identify whether there is a need for it to be developed,” Hernandez said

“It’s (the profiling is) very important because tourism is a continuing industry,” she added.

She further said that they are also in the process of identifying potential tourist sites aside from profiling the man-made and natural attraction.
