PLDT and Smart Communications, Inc. have launched GoCamNorte, Camarines Norte’s official tourism application, during the annual Bantayog Festival and the province’s celebration of its 102nd founding anniversary.
Developed in collaboration with Smart and InnoPub Media, the ‘GoCamNorte app is expected to boost the number of visitors in Bicol region’s northernmost province as travel restrictions are gradually lifted.
Tourists and locals alike may now learn more about Camarines Norte’s best destinations and heritage sites even before they visit the province using mobile technology.
Another component of the digital tourism app are the interactive markers that provide contactless delivery of information through QR codes.
“With the use of smartphones, we can enable safe and contactless delivery of tourism, cultural and historical information, right in the hands of travelers,” said Max Limpag, co-founder of InnoPub Media.
Beyond featuring the province’s tourist spots, the app also links visitors to important government hotlines and accredited tour operators, resorts, and accommodations. This gives tourists the assurance that the businesses they patronize have undergone the necessary training so they can offer a safe and memorable experience.
