Zamboanga del Norte will launch a tour package focusing on tourist destinations in the entire province.

Dubbed as “DDPKAROMAS,” the program was the subject of a meeting with government officials in Dipolog city last Wednesday.

“DDPKAROMAS” means Dipolog city-Dapitan city-Katipunan-Roxas-Manukan- Sindangan, areas where tourist destinations are concentrated in the region.

Department of Tourism-9 Supervisor Bernard C. Gregorio said that discussions focused on plans for the program’s launch.

Among tourist sites included in the circuit are Sungkilaw Falls, Linabo Peak, Dakak Beach Resort, Rizal Shrine, Aliguay and Silinog islands, the US-Japanese World War II warship beach site, and caves in Katipunan and Roxas.

The program is reportedly financed by USAID.

Plans for the development of tourism in the region include infrastructure development and organization of the community for tourism purposes.  (Allen Abastillas)
