Dumaguete City Mayor Felipe Remollo is in the process of requesting all the local stakeholders to support the upcoming Sports Tourism Forum in 1st of February. Sports Tourism Forum is an event organized by Selrahco, a private firm. They are all prepared to engage representatives from government units in regards to tourism, sports, education, local sports association and private companies in this forthcoming event.
This event will showcase the regions capability in hosting major events and bring forth Negro Oriental as one of the top places for sports activities in the world. To quote Selrahco President Charles Lim, “Diving is such a big thing in this part of the world. You talk to any dive associations outside the Philippines they will tell you this is one of the best dive sports we have in the region and divers from all over the world are coming here’’. Remollo considers that Dumaguete City can be an excellent destination for sports tourism as the place has endless opportunities for organizing different sports activities. For example, Twin Lakes as brilliant landscape to organize kayaking events, basketball tournaments, cycle marathons, volleyball games, expansive boulevard place for bangkathons and Dumaguete Press Club Building for organizing beach sports.
