In an effort to expand the tourism opportunities of BOSZ,Bataan, Olongapo City, Subic Bay Freeport Zone, and .

Zambales-a group of businessmen founded the Greater Subic Bay Tourism Bureau (GSBTB) in 2004. This collective of ho~~'I, r~sort and theme park owners, recognized by the Northern .PhdlPPllle Visitors Bureau" envisioned the area of the Greater Subic Bay to be one ofthepremiertourist destinations in the Asia-Pacific.

To r alize its vision, the GSBTB specified Co tegorits in which the Greater Subic Bay should be recognized for, namely: ceo-tourism, fiesta islands, land aud water sports, reso.rt center, , entertainment, shopping paradise, convention center, culture

and arts gourmet haven and . retirement destination. On top of aU these qualifiers, the Bure<l.u is prioritizing the protection of its diverse ecosystem and the rich heritage of the area. After all. these are the attributes that made it (he second leg and main anchor of theW-Growth Corridor, a socio-economic srraregy coined from the shape ofCentra1 Luzon. The e traits are evident in the peninsular province of Bataan, with its historical landmarks

of World "Var II; the City of Olongapo, with its innovative


PI' gnmr for peace and.order; Subic Bay Freeport, which

was the first ex-military base converted into a tax and duty free zone; and the province of . ZaJ])bales, with its long coast of rich marine Ute. Each of these preserved unique environments bring in more tau rist and investors in the area.

As a springboard for all its plans. the first m;1._j r activities ofth~ GSBTB were the Subik Travel Exchange Convention

in 2006 and the ubikl Subik! Festival Event in 2007-both events adherent to its mission

of fad uta ling the efforts of government units and pertinent private sectors. Events such as these are usually held at the Subic Bay Exhibition and Convention Center, the biggest convention area in the country with a total

r I I I

flOOK area of 12,000 sqllare meters.

Presently becoming

one of tile leading tourism organizations in the country with its more than 100 members, GSBTB is currently headed by Chairman eorge Lorenzana, owner of White Rock Resort In the town of Subic, and Mount~ljn Woods Resort Hotel imide the ubic Bay Freeport. With the need for further expansion, the Bureau started utilizing online networkina through 'lin online press rele a ~ep a ]·tn.~r in l1'1 idJ- 2008. Supplementmg the traditional media releases, event announcements are now reaching more members and interested _Rarties through the services of PRLog. ASIde from an improved online presence,

the accessibility of the Greater Snbic Bay area has also improved after the opening of the Subic Clark Tailac Expressway (SCTEx). A Manila-Subic travel time of less than two hours has become beneficial ~o both goods tran~port and tounst travel.

UPC0n111W events 1n the Greater Sllbicl3ay area include the Grand Sanracruzan by the 5MBA Tourism in !layatrhe Subic Bay Freeport Zone and the Salsa Salsang Salpukan. sa Subic by GSBTB on May 28.

Unknown to most Filipinos, Pres. Emilio Aguinaldo celebrated the first anniversary of the proclamation of Philippine independence at the Paminruan Mansion in Angeles City, Pampanga on June 12, 1899 .. He unfurled and waved! the original Filipino flag sewn in Hong Kong; it was the same flag used in Kawit, Cavite the previous year.

The stately mansion was built in 1890 by the. pare:J;lts of Don Florentino Pamintuan. According to Daniel Dizon, after the [ail of Malolos to American hands in March 1899, Gen.

in the background adds an eerie feeling to an already uncanny trek goi ng to the beach. Anawangin got its name from fluting the Ilocano word for carabao since there is an abundance of it there.

say that many were planted after the Mount Pinatubo eruption bu r the trees were then' even before that. To add to the my:;; riq lle are crysta I dear streams that reflect the tall pine trees on rhe surface like one was in some enchanted forest. And to think this whole area was devastated in 1991. It just

haws how fast nature heals itself

The beach is a long strip of near-white volcanic sand dumped by rV1011nt Pinatubo. The locals said that before the eruption, this area was mostly rock. The sand from Mount Pinatubo had created a wonderful playground for beach lovers. And it's even

more wonderful that the locals take good care of it. So whatever they charge you, they most probably deserve it.

NAGSASA COVE (San Antonio. Zambales)

Less than 30 minutes from Anawagin, one can experience

a nether magnificent beach location not too many people get to visit - Nagsasa Cove. The volcanic materials from .Mr. Pinatubo's eruption found its way to Nagsasa and created its idyUic landscape,

Although only a couple of picnic tables are available for use of visitors and campers, the place is still ideal for camping and for a true outdoor experience. Visitors can also mingle and hare a meal with the local Aeta community

who relocated to the area. Truly, another one of nature's hidden wonder; Nagsasa is a perfect spot for YOlll" summer getaway.

It's a five to six hour drive from Marilla to Anda. Tondol is actually a public beach and entrance fee is only PHP5.

the end of the road. Resorrs US\JaUy charge you PHP30 for parking and you GUl enjoy this really great beach. There are also huts for rent for the day. Just a warning though, while the cream sand on the beach feels really great once YDU get into the water, it becomes rocky and it's difficult to walk Oil.


[Alatninos, Pangasinant

Hu nd red lsnands in

.Ala minos, PangasimHl is one

of the iconic attractions of the Phi]jppines. We've learned about it through our elementary text books and seen itt extensivejy

in our tourism campaigns. But have you actually visted it?

Vis~ting the Hundred

NOR T H B 0 UN D I ISS U E 2 29


Islands is very simple . just make you r way to Barangay Lucap in Alaminos where boats are available. There are standard rates as well so no need to haggle. Just check with the dispatchers office as soon as you get there. You can do this as a day trip if you leave lVhuula early. But irs best to experience Hundred Islands by sta.ying at least overnight.

Anyway, the boas will

rake you to Governor's Island where you can climb several steps to a view deck for the Hundred Islands. You can opt to swim there or proceed to Quezon Island where the white sand beach is much better or where yon can rent kayaks and snorkeling equipment. But if

you want a beach all to yourself, simply pick another island!

The Hundred Islands definitely deserve a second look.

MA.IRA-IRA B,EACH (Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte)

V\Te're all familiar with Saud Beach iill iPagllldpud.

Hut further north is another beach in Pagudpud that is fast becoming a popular beach destination: Mairaiira Cove

or Blue Lagoon. Mairaira

got its monicker becau se of the immaculate blue waters around the cove. And because of the strong swells, it's perfect for su rfjng as well.

So surfing lessons are offerred around the area. 1m!

One of those activ]ties_is __ horseback riding at El Kabayo Riding Stables. While you can take the horse around the area, if you are adventurous and up to the task, why not go for a ride down to the Sacobia River and e~oy the lahar canyons created by 'the Mt, Pinatubo eruption? The trek can last for hours. But for those who love the outdoors, it's worth it. You can also ride on the horses around Clark.. It's all up to you where you want to go and how long you could last.

Then there's another wellness spa from the hot sulfur-rich waters of Pinatubo. You'll board 4x4 vehicles that will take you to the Puning Hot Spring. It's in the ancestral domain of the Aetas so you'll get to meet a not of them

as you make your way to the hot spring. In fact, the employees of the Puning Hot Spring are mosdy indigenous Aetas.

The ride is an attraction

in itself, passing through lahar canyons and small streams in Sapang Bato. In fact, some canyons are so narrow that the 4x4s li terally driive on the water. The ride

from Station 1 to' 3 was about 30 minutes; bumpy but exciting!

Station 1 is the Base Camp and has a garden restaurant. Station 2 is the spa and massage area. While Station 3 is the hot spring itself As you near Purring Hot Spring, you'll feel the water of the stream warming up as you splash your way through.

At the Puning Hot Spring, make sure to trek to the source of the pools which is a steaming holt waterfall. The water in the stream is close lto 90 degrees Celsius.



They divert some of the water into various pools with different temperatures ranging from 40 to 70 degrees Celsius. There

are eight hot pools and one cold pool. So if one pool is too hot for you, you CaII! take a dip in the next one.

The Puning package costs PHP3,OOO. And that includes buffet meals, the 4x4 ride from Garden Restaurant to the hot spring and back, entrance fees to the hot spring and use of

the facilities, sand steam (that's where they bury you up to the neck under volcanic sand), body mud pack, and. a foot massage.

Finally. do you want to see a different view ofMt.


Pinatubo? PhP4,500 can take you on a fifty minute Cessna ride over the crater of Mount Pinatubo. Just drive over to Omni Aviation and book yourself on one hell ofa ride for a different view of this natural wonder, 1m
