Tropical Productions, Inc. set to focus efforts in the Philippines
The company is expected to direct its efforts in the Philippines, highlighting how tourist-friendly Guam is, from it being an English-speaking U.S. territory bursting with American-made goods and island-grown products, having shopping spots that rival the best in the world and a native Chamorro culture that is both unique and colorful, to the most exciting nature adventures that can only be found on the island.
If you’ve been following my blog, you’ll probably remember that just last year, I was invited by the wonderful folks of the Guam Visitors Bureau to visit Guam and join their annual Ko’ko’ Road Race Half Marathon. You can read more about my incredible and one-of-a-kind Guam experience here.
Arrivals from the Philippines in Fiscal Year 2016 have reached an all-time high with 18,704 visitors coming to Guam. It is a 52.3% increase when compared to the previous fiscal year. Fiscal Year 2016 is also the best fiscal year in visitor arrivals with Guam reaching 1.51 million visitors.
With this newly forged partnership, it seems that things are going to be quite busy, fun and very productive for Pinoys and Guamanians alike. I, myself, am looking forward to going back to Guam hopefully in the near future. It’s one of those places that you never really grow tired of. So, get ready, pack your bags and get ready to say “Hafa adai” (pronounced, “Half a day”) to beautiful Guam.
