The local government unit (LGU) of Camalig is set to launch several projects that focus on the development of tourism infrastructure, promotional strategies, skills capability training, and Department of Tourism (DOT) accreditation of tourism-related establishments.
Camalig Mayor Carlos Irwin G. Baldo Jr., in a social media post on Thursday, said the LGU plans to accelerate its tourism circuits through the active involvement of stakeholders, including travel agencies, facilities for meetings, incentives, conferences, and exhibitions (MICE), tour operations, dining, accommodation, and transportation with the observance of health protocols against Covid-19.
“LGU-Camalig also eyes to assess and build transportation routes to and from the Bicol International Airport (BIA) to promote tourist spot accessibility and most importantly, tourist safety,” he said.
Dubbed the “Heritage Town of Albay”, Camalig has a total of six tourist/attraction areas — the Hoyop-Hoyopan Cave in Barangay Cotmon, Quituinan Hills in Barangay Tinago, Sumlang Lake in Barangay Sumlang, Solong Eco-Park in Solong, Quituinday Green Hills in Quituinday village, and El Miro De Shei Integrated Farm in Barangay Salugan, along with St. John the Baptist Parish and colonial houses at the Poblacion areas.
