Senior Tourism Operations Officer Myla Mae B. Abellana announced the launching of the Department of Tourism Region VII campaign to enlarge the number of visitor accommodations in Negros Oriental to receive the growing tourist traffic coming into the Province.

Abellana said the Homestay Program will enable tourists to experience the Filipino family way of life, while homeowners get to better know other cultures, and at the same time earn a share of the economic benefits of tourism.

Abelana said the Program’s first phase will target homeowners in Bacong, Valencia, Sibulan, San Jose, Amlan, and Dumaguete City as more tourists frequent these areas.

Interested parties are invited to contact the Provincial Tourism Office or the Dumaguete City Tourism Office to they can be included in the ocular inspection that will be conducted this month by the Regional Tourism Office, Abellana added.

She said the houses should be made of “durable building materials that are in good and presentable condition”. The DOT requires “adequately-furnished spare rooms with extra bed, good lighting system, sufficient water supply, well-maintained toilet and bathroom, electric or natural ventilation, and home-cooked meals” at reasonable cost.

She said the homes should ideally be located in “pleasant and healthful areas where peace and order prevail, natural and/or man-made attractions, with easy access to transportation services and commercial facilities” that can cater to the tourists.
