Tired but happy.
This describes the reaction of more than 15 local journalists on September 17-19, 2014 who had a chance to escape a usual hectic day’s work and hop on a Familiarization Tour to the serene and incredibly scenic of four tourist destination in Aklan.
In this regard, Department of Tourism (DOT) Aklan also extends their sincere gratitude for the support and cooperation of various groups in such activity.
Carina Ruiz of DOT Aklan said, “The purpose of the tour is to get the media as partner in promoting Madalag, Libacao, Ibajay and Malay as an ideal tourist destination ahead of “Tourism Week Celebration.”

Part of their itinerary includes visiting falls, culture park, and beaches.
Meanwhile, Philippine Familiarization Tour (Fam Tour) is DOT’s biggest tourism promotion event.
