Leo Udtohan - The Philippine Star

MANILA, Philippines - Perfect beaches. Interesting places. Friendly locals. Fascinating history.

That is how the five beauties of the Miss Tourism International 2013 want to tell the world about Bohol which they visited last week. They are in the country for a 13-day tour to experience and promote the Philippines.

Miss Tourism International 2013 beauties Maria Rautio of Finland, Lucie Klukava of Czech Republic, Lisa Karls Dottir of Iceland, Thu Phan of Vietnam, Kylie Miller of New Zealand were warmly welcomed by the members of the Rotary Club of Panglao.

They visited the Loboc River, one of the province’s tourist spots. They had a sumptuous lunch while cruising the river. During a stopover, they played the ukulele and danced tinikling with a local dance group housed in a nipa hut along the river which entertains the cruisers.

They also visited the tarsier conservation place to see the tarsier, the smallest primate in the world.

The beauties were also amazed when they arrived at Alona Beach (upper photo) in Panglao. 

The beauties also visited an orphanage (lower photo) in Albur town and they paid a courtesy call on Vice Mayor Pedro Fuertes and department heads at the Panglao Municipal Hall.

 “The tour is to introduce Bohol’s sights and sounds that everything is back to normal after the 7.2 magnitude earthquake last year,” said Deo Guden, guide and staff of Panglao Mayor Nila Montero.  

The beauties want to promote the Philippines through social media and share their experience with other people in their respective countries.
