DOT helps promote Tadian’s culture through rural tourism
by Ofelia C. Empian

TADIAN, Mountain Province – The Department of Tourism will be promoting one of Mountain Province’s cultural towns.

Tourism USec. Falconi Millar said the cultural heritage of this town remain evident with the various cultural presentations made by each barangay when he graced the 9th Ayyoweng di Lambak last week. 

“The cultural presentations here are very vibrant which we can promote. The scenic views here can be developed with DOT,” Millar said.

He expressed confidence that improving access to scenic views in the municipality and preserving the people’s cultural heritage will attract tourists.

“The preservation of cultural heritage is there, all we need is to improve it to make it more lively and add some musical instruments and more participation of the community and the revelers,” he said.

“I am so happy that even if we were conquered by colonial mentality we have preserved these kinds of cultural practices in Tadian,” he added.

He said they have initial talks with Mayor Anthony Wooden on how to go about the improvements of the infrastructures within the municipality. He added they would tap the National Commission for Culture and the Arts and Tourism Infrastructure and Enterprise Zone Authority to help improve Tadian’s festivities, tourism sites, and infrastructure.

“We have been promoting in the past other tourist destinations such as Boracay but now it’s time to focus in the Cordillera when it comes to rural tourism,” he said.

Th mayor said they are encouraging residents to create accommodations in the town. He said there are residents offering homestays and has undergone trainings under the tourism office. 

There are four inns in the area including the Parish Hall and other homestays that can accommodate around a hundred visitors, he said.

He said visitors who want to visit Tadian may approach their visitors’ information center so they can be guided where to go and stay.

Tadian also boasts of Sunny side Eco Park where the enchanted eel is located in Gawaan Lake; the Mt. Mogao seen in the area; singing Jar in Kayan and their own version of rice terraces and water falls, among others.
