Tara na sa Tagalag! Rex Gatchalian teases about Valenzuela’s best kept secret
After improving local government services, education and security in Valenzuela City, Mayor Rex Gatchalian is focusing his efforts on promoting tourism.
Gatchalian shared in a Facebook post Tuesday Valenzuela’s best kept secret: the Tagalag Fishing Village in Barangay Tagalag.
Photos uploaded by the mayor showed nipa huts constructed by the waters, the perfect spot for tourists to go fishing.
Gatchalian recently visited the barangay for a seminar to teach residents about the site’s tourism potential.
He said he has tapped the Department of Tourism to do scheduled trainings for the residents, business owners, and resort owners in Barangay Tagalag to equip them with knowledge on tourism awareness and standards, product development, community tour guiding, and sustainable tourism.
“I need the full cooperation of the residents and the whole community to make this happen… Work with me to make the Tagalag Fishing Village a success!” Gatchalian said.
