Postard from Marinduque-Would this postcard not encourage sex tourism in the Philippines?
Marinduque-our second home was chosen by the Philippines Tourism Congress as the Island destination for 2013 just recently. This is indeed good news. If you have been following my blogs, I had indicated that seeing Marinduque become a tourist destination worldwide is one of my dreams and goals after my retirement. Thus, I have been blogging about Marinduque after my retirement in 2002. The article below is an article published by the Tourism Congress of the Philippines-a private organization.(www.philippinetourismcongress.com )Chateau Du Mer Sign from the Beach
"The Island of Marinduque is covered in a forest of green. An idyllic poster province for eco-tourism, Marinduque is an example how beautiful and scenic an island can be when it is not over developed. Rising from an environmental disaster of a mining accident, Marinduque is set to become a major tourist destination.
Marinduque is a safe and peaceful place. Traveling around Marinduque, one cannot miss the welcoming smile of its people. Getting lost is next to impossible as a helping hand is always nearby to guide you to your intended destination. The jails are almost empty for the lack of criminality in the island.
The circumferential coastal roads of the islands are cemented and well maintained, making going around the island pleasurable. The public transport consists mainly of jeepneys and tricycles but air-conditioned vans are available for hire.
Being a net producer of agricultural products, the prices of food in Marinduque is lower compared to the Luzon mainland. Cows, goats and chicken in considerable quantity can be seen in the fields all over the island. The wet markets are full of sea food in their freshest state".
Indeed, I am so delighted to read this news. It is more Fun in the Philippines! For more information about Marinduque, visit my blog at
