The City of Baguio has adopted a resolution commending ABS-CBN’s hit romantic drama series Forevermore starring Enrique Gil and Liza Soberano for the show’s contribution in the promotion of the tourism in the city.
According to Resolution Numbered 92, the City of Baguio acknowledges ABS-CBN and the whole production of Forevermore for helping boost the tourism industry of the summer capital of the Philippines.
“Due to the popularity of the said teleserye, tourists and visitors have been flocking to the City of Baguio to visit and get a glimpse of ‘La Presa’ which has become an instant tourist attraction for the City of Baguio and Tuba, Benguet,” stated the resolution that was signed by City Vice-Mayor Edison Bilog and Mayor Mauricio Domogan.
For several months, the Kapamilya Network used Sitio Pungayan, Mt. Sto. Tomas, Tuba, Benguet as the location of "La Presa," the fictional town where its characters Xander (Enrique) and Agnes (Liza) fell in love with each other.
Directed by Cathy Garcia Molina, Forevermore revolved around the love story of the rebellious and rich kid Xander and the Strawberry Jam Queen of Benguet Agnes.
Forevermore, which aired from October 2014 to May 2015, performed well in the ratings game nationwide and in Mega Manila. The finale episode of the LizQuen-starrer registered its all-time high national TV rating of 39.3%.
Adding to the success of the series, Forevermore has become one of the latest Filipino series aired internationally, most recently in Kazakhstan, Cambodia, Vietnam, and other parts of Africa.
