Congratulations to our Municipal Tourism Office for being the GRAND CHAMPION in the Best Tourism Month/Week Celebration (Municipality) Category of the 13th ATOP-DOT Pearl Awards!
For the first time in the history of Bayambang, Tourism Week was celebrated on September 2017 through the leadership our very first Senior Tourism Operations Officer Rafael L. Saygo. All the hard work of the office, which was then composed of Mr. Saygo and his assistant, Kristelle Jane Domingo, paid off as the Association of Tourism Officers of the Philippines and the Department of Tourism conferred the award during the 19th ATOP National Convention held in Cagayan de Oro, Misamis Oriental.
