BANGUED, Abra – The Provincial Government of Abra led by Gov. Dominic Valera is inviting all Filipino and foreign tourists to visit the province this summer.
The tourism industry has experienced challenges during the Covid-19 pandemic but with situations getting back to normal, the province is now open for visitors to admire and experience Abra’s amazing culture and tourist spots.
Provincial Tourism Officer Marsman Daguio said local and foreign tourists have choices to visit with the various attractions in the province.
If they want adventure, the upland municipalities offer a lot of waterfalls and rivers, such as in Daguioman and Tubo.
Those who are interested to visit waterfalls may visit the Basakal Falls in Daguioman and the Kili Falls in Tubo, Daguio said.
“This summer, one of the most popular places to visit is the Lusuac Spring and it is a must-try if you’re visiting Abra,” he added.
There are also activities like hiking, spelunking, and caving.
All visitors are advised to coordinate with the municipal tourism officers (MTO) of local government units so they will be provided a guide for their safety.
“They need to coordinate with our MTOs because aside from a comfortable visit, we also prioritize their safety,” Daguio said.
He said tourism continues to bring livelihood for Abrenios, particularly those who are offering for rent floating cottages near the Abra River like in Barangay Calaba, Bangued.
The recently concluded Kawayan Festival has helped in promoting tourism in the province with the involvement of the 27 municipalities that showcased their products, tourist spots, and culture. – Christian Allister Tubadeza
