Tourism as an engine of economic growth has proven itself in the worlds major economies. France, with over 40 million tourist arrivals annually followed by Spain and the United States are proof positive that the tourism industry can be a major GDP contributor. In Asia, Malaysia leads the region with around 18 million visitors yearly followed by Hong Kong. The Philippines trails behind with only 3 million arrivals in Pasiyo Sa Kabilin
A 2001 study commissioned by the Dept. of Tourism points to Cebu as the most competitive destination in the country- comparable to Phuket, Thailand and Bali, Indonesia. The potential to spur tourism in the country and become a powerhouse is strong if we make it work. In the 1980s, Cebu made its mark by positioning itself as an island in the Pacific banking on its fine white sand beaches in Mactan Island complemented by a cluster of attractions and activities in Cebu City, less than an hour away. Pasiyo Sa Kabilin
But, after more than 2 decades, other destinations in the Philippines have emerged with strong offerings rivaling Cebu. It has become clear, therefore, that Cebu must reposition itself with a brand differentiation that no other destination can claim. Aside from its fine beaches and a city that boasts of shopping, entertainment, recreation, urban services and other amenities, Cebu has a unique heritage. Pasiyo Sa Kabilin
In 1521, the island of Sugbu played a pivotal role in the voyage of Ferdinand Magellan. It was part of the historic first circumnavigation of the world with the arrival of the three Spanish ships seeking provisions in the trading port of Sugbu. Vestiges of our colonial past in the old districts of the city are a veritable treasure trove that we have not fully explored as a tourism attraction. If packaged as a heritage tour. We can strengthen a new brand positioning of Cebu Island as a Resort and Heritage Destination. Pasiyo Sa Kabilin
Pasiyo Sa Kabilin is a standardized tourism product with customized options designed to promote our heritage sites within the Spanish colonial settlement and Parian, the district assigned to Chinese settlers which eventually rose to become the residential enclave of the wealthiest merchants and traders. The tour is available to individual tourists, tour operators, special interest groups, convention organizers, and others through the CCTC foundation office. With focus on Heritage, this project shall provide a much needed boost to strengthen Cebus tourism industry albeit, limited in scope, and does not pretend to be the answer to all the issues that must be addressed to keep Cebu ahead of competitors.

Pasiyo Sa Kabilin
Pasiyo Sa Kabilin requires complementary programs that will pave the way for long term sustainability. There will be four pillars supporting the project that will be billed Garbo sa Kabilin: Pasiyo Sa Kabilin
Tour guides are front liners and influence the experience of tourists. Involves continuous training to improve knowledge and presentation skills Incentive program to recognize the top three heritage tour guides annually. This will provide motivation for tour guides to have a sense of pride in Cebus heritage and in their profession who otherwise promote the more commercial if not the seedier aspects of tourism. This can be a co-sponsored project with CCTC, DOT, CATO and CATG. Program for Tour Guide Excellence
Identify schools within the are of historical sites that will participate in a series of activities designed to inform, enlighten, inspire and motivate school children that will make them stakeholders in the preservation, protection and promotion of our heritage sites. CCTC can link up with the schools, PDI /CDN with their reading program, VAMGI for participating museums and theater /multi-media personalities for story telling activities. Awareness and Educational Program
Organize vendors and qualified residents under the leadership of each barangay LGU. Together with CCCI, the project will identify tourism-related livelihood projects and enlist handicraft manufacturers for training and resources. The barangays would be tasked to secure and protect heritage sites in each locality with the involvement of barangay neighborhoods. Grassroots Barangay Program
CCCI, the Arts Council, Taytayan sa Parian, Downtown Revitalization Group, Hapsay Sugbu, Parks and Playgrounds Commission, CHAC and CCTC will form a powerful alliance to champion legislation of city ordinances that will: Define rules and guidelines in the preservation of heritage structures, the architectural nature of buildings and infrastructure to be built Routing of traffic in heritage sites, and other relevant issues. This will be hand in hand with a drive to raise support through an annual adoption of a heritage site program among corporate and entrepreneurial entities. Legacy Program
