It is more fun in Oriental Mindoro!
"Huwag ng patumpiktumpik pa, tara na! (Don't hesitate, Let's Go)" is the slogan by Philippine noontime show "Showtime". Allow me to borrow these words in virtually inviting you to our province, Oriental Mindoro, tara na!

Oriental Mindoro opens its doors to everyone, from the regular travelers and tourists to the businessmen and investors. A visit to Oriental Mindoro accords visitors a peaceful retreat from the complexities of city life. The serene and rejuvenating atmosphere of its white sand beaches and clear blue waters, and the fascinating view of its majestic mountains embellished with lush green forests are wondrous sights to behold. As attested by local and multi-national investors, the island's province is regarded as the new gateway to the south --- the Visayas and Mindanao --- which paves the way to better business opportunities and exciting tourist destinations. It has now the capacity to be one of our country's economic centers presently attributed to Subic, Cebu and Davao. Soon, it will be known as a tourism Mecca comparative to Boracay, Palawan and the likes. (www.ormindoro.gov.ph)
