DOT expo in Clark seen to set NorthPhil as int’l tourism hub
An international expo being organized by the Department of Tourism is seen to boost the rise of North Philippines as a global tourism hub centered on Clark with its airport’s ever-increasing passenger volume and huge, yet highly expandable, capacity for both international and domestic air traffic.
DOT Central Luzon Regional Director Ronaldo P. Tiotuico said the forthcoming NorthPhil Expo 2014 would further highlight the inevitability of the Clark International Airport emerging as a premier global gateway even by mere capacity alone.
“The current and potential capacity of our airport (Clark) can complement, absorb and conveniently accommodate any spillover airlines from NAIA (Ninoy Aquino International Airport), prompting foreign carriers to give Clark some serious considerations.

The Philippine Department of Tourism has been receiving complaints from the public that some individuals and entities charge a service fee of around P300,000 to supposedly assist them in their applications for a US visitor’s visa before the US Embassy in Manila. Worse, some of these individuals and entities claim that they have a contact working at the US Embassy in Manila which will almost guarantee the issuance of a US visitor’s visa. Despite the representation and assistance by these individuals and entities, most of these hopeful visa applicants get denied of their US visitor’s visas. The denial of these applications is even being blamed on the applicants themselves for their failure to properly respond to the questions of the US consular officer.

This is an international trail race on an out-and-back course on footpath connecting Clark (formerly Clark Air Base of the American servicemen and during pre-WWII, it was called Fort Stotsenburg) to the scenic Miyamit Falls in Porac,Pampanga. It is an old trail used primarily by Aetas to travel from their ancestral land, Clark and other neighboring areas.
The route will take runners from the Tennis Court area of Clark Parade Ground (Start/Finish line) at Clark Freeport Zone (formerly Clark Air Base), Gate 14, Sacobia River, Puning Spa, Sitio Target, up the dirt road covering the sugar cane plantation, SitioEbus (Aeta community), down to the expansive Pasig-Potrero River (river crossing), parallel dirt road along SCTEX, Crow Creek (SapangUwak), passing through the Aeta community, then up to Miyamit Falls and the peak (about 3kms to caldera of Mt. Pinatubo) and back to Clark.
For 2014, we are expecting 250 participants and volunteers who are mostly runners and locals like the Aetas.
