At your service! Abby Binay mans tourist info desk with Monique Lagdameo


Makati Mayor Abby Binay had a taste of what it was like to entertain a first-time foreign visitor to the city when she manned the tourist information center at Glorietta 2 on Tuesday, January 28.

Binay was manning the desk alongside Vice Mayor Monique Lagdameo when a Chinese-looking tourist dropped by to ask questions.

Photos showed by the My Makati Facebook page showed Binay and Lagdameo gamely answering the tourist’s concerns.

The desk, established by the city’s International Relations Department (IRD), aims to promote the city’s cultural heritage sites and provide lists of tourism-related activities in the city to local and foreign tourists.

Other city officials who attended the launch were Binay’s husband, Rep. Luis Campos, city councilors and barangay officials.
