AS part of its advocacy to help restart the domestic tourism industry, Petron Corp. supported the recent caravan of AAP Lakbay, which visited the historical, cultural, culinary and natural attractions of Maragondon and Silang towns in Cavite.
The leading oil firm has been supporting the group over the past few years by providing participants with Petron Value Cards with P1,000 fuel credits and by showcasing its latest petroleum products and road safety programs.
Themed "Drive, Dine and Discover," the caravan drove through the Our Lady of the Assumption Church, the Bonifacio Trial House Museum, the Inuquit River Cruise, the Likhang Maragondon, the Cornerstone Pottery Farm and the Asiong Caviteño Restaurant.
The AAP Lakbay caravan also made a pit stop at the Petron Tanza service station.
AAP Lakbay has been the drive tourism arm of the Automobile Association of the Philippines (AAP), the country's national auto club, which has been doing a series of caravans across the country's key destinations over the past decade to promote domestic tourism.
The third during the Covid-19 pandemic period, the caravan has been among the private initiatives to promote drive tourism and so-called green circuits, which adhere to health and safety standards, set by the Department of Tourism.
The caravan has also been supported by Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corp. or Pagcor as part of its corporate social responsibility programs; by the Philippine Exporters Confederation Inc. or Philexport, which has been promoting the development of local crafts for the overseas market; and by Mapfre Philippines for the insurance coverage of vehicles.
