MANILA, March 9 (PNA) — Tagaytay remains to be the top tourist destination in the Calabarzon region, a Philippine tourism official said.

Philippine Department of Tourism Region IV-A Director Rebecca Labit said that of the region’s five provinces, namely Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal and Quezon, it is Cavite with the most number of tourist arrivals being home to the breezy city of Tagaytay.

She said that tourists like visiting Tagaytay for its various attractions—from rivers, springs, beaches, waterfalls, mountains, farms, parks and forests to historical landmarks, museums, golf courses and Baroque churches.

The tourism official further said that there cultural events and festivals are also celebrated monthly in each of the 16 towns and seven cities to promote their local products and their legacies.

Cavite is also known for its rich culture noting the significance of the province as the cradle of the Philippine Revolution of 1898 and as the last bastion of defense during World War II.

The Calabarzon region recently had an exhibit in the DOT showroom in Makati City earlier this week, which featured some of its export products including crunchy chips made from banaba, lagundi, ginger, malunggay, ampalaya, onion, garlic, and tahong (mussles) as Cavite is one of the Philippines’ biggest producers of seafood.

Labit said that there were also pineapple candies, pickled papaya and vegetables, mangosteen and turmeric teas as well as Sosmaryosep hot chili sauce and Emperor’s Juice of 18 in 1 herbal mix powder.

Meanwhile, internationally-recognized Nurture Wellness Village in Tagaytay provided complimentary spa treatments and samples of their wellness menu patterned after Filipino and other Asian traditions.

There were also food and drinks, including the best Amadeo coffee, served throughout the program through the courtesy of the municipal governments of Maragondon, Indang and Mendez as well as the city government of Imus.
