Yesterday, the 26th Philippine Travel Mart organized by PHILTOA  (Philippine Tour Operators Association and TPB (Tourism Promotons Board Philippines) just kicked off and travelers swarmed the huge hall of SMX in SM Mall of Asia.  It was also there that Visit Davao Fun Sale was formally announced to the public and they just gave away four flight roundtfip tickets to where else, Davao.  

Guess what, did I win one? Well no, but I was able to score 6 tickets to Davao by lining up at Cebu Pacific's booth for a whopping P 7,100, these are all roundtrip tickets.  

Why did I  choose to go to Davao rather than traveling abroad with the family?

Well for one, DOT-XI have collaborated with The Big Davao Fun Sale Retailers Association of Davao, Tours Consortium, Inc., Restaurant Owners Association of Davao City, Hotel and Resorts Sales and Marketing Associaton of Davao (HRSMA Davao), the newly created MICE Organizers' ventures Davao and Davao Wellness and Spa Association to design the city-wide sale extravaganza which as the organizers claim to be much better than the two previous years.  Also, I haven't been there and it's in our family's bucket list.
