Airport’s Arrival Lounge New Offerings!

Davao International Airport from the airline's window

Upon arrival at the Davao International Airport from a vacation, I am very happy to be back in my beloved city – Davao City. It was raining then, duh, it’s not an issue, it always rain when the darkness starts to cover the city. That is how blessed the city is, during the day – it’s sunny, and at night – it’s rainy; I am happy with this because the trees and plants will be bathed after a sunny day.

Airport's Arrival lounge

I’m not that frequent traveler but I was able to travel late of the first and second quarter this year and I’ve been thinking of some things that can help Davao City improve its tourism campaign to arriving domestic and international tourists. Yet, I don’t know where to go and send the suggestions I have in mind. Perhaps, blogging it will help soon. πŸ™‚

At the right side of this post, this is the airport’s arrival lounge, as usual, a welcome greeting will be seen, but it will not be enough to see a greeting for a tourist to become attracted to a tourist destination. There has to be something that a tourist can bring and navigate – like a map and brochures.

Just last May, I read in a business paper article that the Davao Association of Travel Operators (DATO) and the Davao City government will be establishing Davao branding for tourism; and one start that can entice tourists to come here will be putting some maps and brochures at the airport.

Maps and brochures

Now, it is now realized, just like other airports in the world, Davao International Airport has its maps and brochures available for tourists, and it’s for FREE! πŸ™‚ (Go back to the second picture, the TOURISM INFORMATION BOOTH is located at the right side of the arrival lounge when facing towards the exit of the lounge – grab your free brochures and map there!) This will now be a start of enticing more guests to the city as guests will take home these items with them. During the stay in the city, the map will serve as their guide and a brief introduction of this beautiful booming city in the Southern Philippines.

I just hope that this will last for long and will improve the maps to be more accurate and easilyΒ navigable. πŸ™‚

Kudos Davao!
