My memories of Oriental Mindoro has always been a pleasant one. This is where the rich tropical forests touch white sand beaches and clear blue waters spore an amazing amount of coral reefs that could wow divers from around the world because of the sheer amount of fish that live here. Aside from that, the region is home to huge mountains and yet to be discovered waterfalls and caves perfect for spelunking, hiking and exploring if you're into adventures this side of the world. Tourism has been one of the most affected industries in the country and to jump start things in this province, the Provincial Government of Oriental Mindoro has joined forces with the Department of Tourism's Tourism Promotions Board to launch the new "Travel Oriental Mindoro App and Website."
What is quite different in this app is that it's a one stop shop wherein you can get details about the hottest places in Oriental Mindoro, verified information about how to visit the tourist spots and up to date travel advisories. That's super convenient, especially at this time when you need to know local government requirements so you get there faster, safer, not just for you but the people around you. The app contains endless information and historical facts about individual Oriental Mindoro towns so you could discover more of its people, world class diving spots, experience the best of local food and the province's available accommodations so you could concentrate more on what's important to you. You can easily log in with your Facebook or Google accounts with a few taps and even leave reviews for places you've been to, experienced, so others would have an idea what to expect when they arrive in the same place. You can also check several shops listed on the app wherein you could purchase and take home knickknacks and bring home as pasalubong (a customary gift after a travel) to family and friends, so they don't feel too left out, and maybe see what they're missing out since they didn't get to be with you on this trip.
The app is powered by ITDC Systems Development Services who made it all user friendly. The Travel Oriental Mindoro App and Website will be officially launched on July 8th (this Thursday) at the Provincial Capitol grounds and will be witnessed by stakeholders from the travel and trade sectors, as well as the kind people of Oriental Mindoro. So make sure you download it by then and experience Oriental Mindoro like you've never did before. It's going to be available on the App Store and Google Play, you may also visit their official website at www.travelorientalmindoro.ph once it gets launched soon.
I can't wait to see that place again!
