CLARK FREEPORT ZONE – The Clark Tourism Office and the Go Tours Agency have formally launched the Clark City Tour at the Clark Museum on September 29, 2017.
Guest of Honor was Clark Development Corporation (CDC) President Noel Manankil along with CDC Chairman Jose “Ping” de Jesus and other board of directors. The occasion was greeted by various officers of hotels here in Clark. Ms. Carolina Uy, Department of Tourism (DOT) Region 3 officer-in-charge, gave an inspirational message.
The Clark City tour is the very first product of Go Tours,
said Ms. Hilda Padua, Go Tours business development manager.
It is a two-hour journey to the past. We bring them to historical sites here in Clark. We assure that the ticket price is affordable than a private tour and (you) can (also) meet other people in the tour.
CDC president Noel Manankil praised the Clark Tourism Office and Go Tours for launching this city tour.
“The Clark City bus tours is what Clark needs because it is slowly becoming a destination not only for locals but also for tourists,”
“We don’t want Clark to be a (mere) transit point for travelers but to see more the beautiful sites here. We also request the hotels here to support this tours by offering to guests.”
CDC Chairman Jose “Ping” de Jesus said, “this is the first time Clark has an organized package tour.” “The Clark Freeport Zone is 25 years old. I know many people have visited Clark and many more are coming but have not seen all of Clark’s sites. This is a very good way to introduce to Clark.”
As regards to the on-going development of Clark, Chairman de Jesus said, “this is the golden age of Clark’s development. The New Clark City will begin early next year along with improving the Clark International Airport. The intention of the Philippine government is to transfer gradually all the government departments here to decongest Metro Manila. And eventually, Malacanang as well.”
“Hopefully the Manila-Clark railway project will be done before the end of the term of President Duterte,” he added.
After the launching, the guests boarded the bus and was given a guided tour of the Clark Freeport Zone.
