Foreign and local tourists arrived in Davao International Airport.

The city government is intensifying its promotional campaign to attract more visitors as it envisions tourist arrivals to increase by 10% this year. Jason C. Magnaye, city tourism operations officer, said the city government will spend at least P10 million to promote Davao this year.

The local government also spent roughly P10 million last year to lure mostly domestic visitors to the city. read more
