The pandemic has made it challenging for people to plan their vacations.

It doesn't help that each local government unit (LGU) of the country enforces ever-changing quarantine protocols and varying travel guidelines.

To address this problem, the Provincial Government of Oriental Mindoro (PGOM) launched a travel app and website called Travel Oriental Mindoro in the hopes of boosting its local tourism industry.

Oriental Mindoro is known for its budget-friendly, pristine, and amazing beaches. The town of Puerto Galera is particularly a crowd puller during summer because of its white-sand beaches and exquisite dive sites.

The municipality of Bulalacao also has a lot of promising islands waiting to be explored.

Aside from its popular beach destinations and diving spots, Oriental Mindoro is also home to some of the country's unspoiled natural resources, hidden waterfalls, and lush green forests.

The towering heights of Mt. Halcon can be found in the municipality of Baco.

In a statement sent to PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), PGOM teamed up with the Department of Tourism's Tourism Promotions Board (TPB) for this project in its effort "to rejuvenate and breathe new life into the severely affected tourism industry of the province."

Powered by ITDC Systems Development Services, the Travel Oriental Mindoro app and website make it easier for local tourists to plan their travels to the province. It has up-to-date information on accommodations, tourists spots, and even upcoming festivals.
