Metro Cebu needs to improve their transport system to global standard as it is the focal point for most travelers in the island province as well to neighboring islands in the Visayas and Mindanao.

Vloggers Coshan Uncharted just got contacted by ABS-CBN
to cover their event in London.

We had a long discussion here months back about Vlogging style.
I pointed out that most popular Vloggers (those with 100k followers).
have the same formulaic style.

But Coshan Uncharted has a unique laid-back style that appeals to older generation.
Maybe this is why Channel 2 invited them despite having only 8k subscribers.

Jump to video 2:40.
Even their Filipino nicknames are old grandparents names.

Here is a popular vlog couple.
In this episode, they were able to document an authentic everyday Philippines.

At 106k views, this is their highest views in 1 month.
Their second place is far second at 69k views.

Proof that Filipino viewers appreciate genuine, authentic vlogs.


PS: The sound of that coconut meat processor is very countryside Philippines.
In my province, we can still buy freshly made Peanut Butter in the wet market.

Related to authenticity of Travel Vlogs.
This is a little off-topic so I will let the MODS decide if they will delete this post :

Here are examples of "staged" scenarios:

1) Erap throwing garbage at the Manila Bay :
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pIkxVmnwe_c

2) Manila in the 1930s.
At video 2:15, the documentary segment was trying to pass as everyday life of Mestiza Filipinas captured on video.
Obviously it was staged. They are just actors :

Unfortunately, social media just like any kind of marketing tool, have certain recommended styles/rules to follow to get viewers. First the content, and how to jazz up the content, the tone, e.g. sincere, human interest etc. As you notice the headlines of some vloggers are meant to capture attention, the rest follows. But to set one's vlog apart from others, they have to develop "unique emotional propositions" according to their target audience. In this case, Fiilipinos are targeted so much by vloggers, other than the photogenic scenery, Pinoys are the #1 users of social media, followed by Brazil. Easier for them to do it in English, than in Portuguese. Even Korean vloggers, based in the PH, they do subtitles. One Estonian vlogger used subtitles too.

ABS CBN must have invited you tube vloggers en masse. Juicy Vlog also announced they were invited to the Barrio Fiesta in the UK. I wonder who else have been invited and coming.

The beauty of social media, you tube and instagram, it doesn't cost the PH to promote the country. They also provide positive entertainment for local Pinoys without paying for it (well, except for wifi.) And the vloggers make money off you tube advertisers etc. Win win for all.

They're a nice couple. Make It Happen vloggers usually have more interesting content. Both are guilty of clickbait captions tho.

There are 3 NM buildings in Luneta.
I didn't know that Cebu does not even have one.
Makes me wonder where Cebuanos go during school field trips.

National Museum to convert Malacañang sa Sugbo into a museum
Quote:


"I personally consider the ongoing absence of the NM (National Museum)
in the international gateway and educational, cultural
and tourism hub of the central Philippines to be incomprehensible,”
added National Museum Chairperson Evangelina Lourdes Arroyo-Bernas
in her June 20 letter.

“It must be noted that there exists no National Museum in Cebu,
which is at odds with Cebu being the queen city of the south,
and the main hub for education, business, and economy
outside of Metro Manila,”
said (Presidential Assistant to the Visayas Michael Dino)
in his letter to (Executive Secretary Medialdea).
He also plans to write similar letter to Finance Secretary Dominguez.

Malacañang sa Sugbo is formerly the Aduana (Spanish for "Customs" ) originally built in 1910.
In 2004, former president Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo converted it to Malacañang sa Sugbo
but it has been idle since the end of the Arroyo’s administration in 2010.

NM was here for almost three decades, just inside Fort San Pedro. It was one of the oldest regional branches of NM. In 2009, they relocated in Museo Sugbo, the provincial museum. The NM galleries closed in 2014.

A typical school field trip back in the 90s includes the obligatory roll call of Cebu’s historic sights e.g. Fort San Pedro, Magellan’s Cross/ Sto. Niño & Casa Gorordo Museum, then either the zoo or mountain resort in Busay before heading to Lapu-Lapu Shrine in Mactan, stopping by a tour of a Mandaue factory on the way (usually mango products, or beverage). The last stop is usually a beach in Mactan (esp. for schools in Cebu City). Our field trips were actually very well rounded.

Today, there are even more museums to visit. Most universities have their own museums.

Unfortunately, these so called vloggers harass Filipinos so they can travel for free. Why not promote Biyahe ni Drew instead. A lot of Filipinos haven’t traveled locally, I suggest that we target the domestic market 1st before we aspire to be in the ranks of Thailand and Malaysia.

What do you mean harass? In what way? I watch foreign vloggers all the time. They get money through YouTube and they seem genuinely in love with the PH. Most of them don’t get free stuff and even then it’ll only be a free hotel stay for a few days but they usually stay for weeks or even months.

Thanks for the information.

I was worried that students were having field trips at shopping malls,
of which we in Manila are also guilty of.

One museum that made an impact on me as a child was the UST Museum (taxidermy).
I'm sure the universities in Cebu also have taxidermy museums.

Glad that the National Museum is returning to Cebu.
However, here is one "curiosity" in the UST Museum.
Ano ito? Bino-bola ba ang grades noong unang panahon?

Sorry for being off tangent. Back to "Tourism".

I really want local tourism to be developed as well. Sa ngayon, ang hirap rin kasi for Filipinos to travel more, given the amount of days off work and challenge ng moving from one place to another. Ubos oras and ubos pera and many people only get to (or want to) visit the tried and tested classics (which now includes Siargao, and Batanes imho).

Here in Metro Manila, joiner tours by van rides solve the time and budget issue, but because of the limited time allotted to many trips, there's less understanding of locality being visited.

Plus, outside the Luzon canon, they tend to over-promote the flavor of the month/year. Like how this year, everyone's going to Masasa Beach, Dingalan, Jomalig Island, Burias Group. Well, it's a social media thing and at least they try to promote locations.

Speaking of memorable field trips, I managed to revisit 2 of the most impressive ones from grade school this year:


Emilio Aguinaldo Shrine


Jose Rizal Shrine

Museums under NHCP are always free and open on weekends. I'm not sure about the NM satellite branches. The ones in Luneta are open Saturdays and Sundays.

Many museums ran by local governments are closed on weekends. I think this discourages the cultural aspect of local tourism as well. Cities and towns can gain a lot by highlighting their stock of heritage structures, local arts and other cultural venues, crafts and other products, even parks and public markets.

Some local tourism offices are more helpful now and publish info about their locality. I wish they also provide jeepney and tricycle routes, plus fare matrices, especially for tricycles .


Governor Modesto Castillo Memorial Cultural Center

Headlines. And everyone is guilty of it, even msm, their headlines sometimes do not really match the content. In msm, they actually have people specializing in writing headlines and captions. They're basically following the principles in advertising/marketing - attention.

They even have a term for "headline" - its called CLICKBAIT.

They (the vloggers) use the term loosely like it is a usual practice, almost like a norm.

The Aguinaldo Mansion also made an impression on me.
I remember the "secret escape passage hole" in case they were attacked.

I cannot remember anything about the Rizal House,
which means it did not make an impact on me.

The Aguinaldo Mansion, I recommend.
It can be interesting even to foreigners.



Here is an Inquirer article (link) about the "curiosities" of the Aguinaldo Mansion.
