The Come Visit My Philippines (CVMP) Facebook page was started by Bessie Badilla, Alex Baguio and Francois Medina; inspired by an article of Tourism Sec. Mon Jimenez, they started posting images of the Philippines in an effort to entice more tourists as well as to showcase the beauty of our country.
The group has since ballooned to over 32,000 members and still growing. Last December 21, at the picturesque Josephine’s Restaurant in Tagaytay, the group held its first ever gathering with no less than Sec. Mon Jimenez in attendance.
More than a hundred members show up for the simple potluck; there was an overflowing of food, specialties that even came from different provinces; at the end of the event, the leftovers were donated to a nearby orphanage. The group also sold CVMP theme t-shirts with the entire profit going to the victims of the recent flooding in Cagayan de Oro, Iligan and Dumaguete.
Here are the rest of the 360 panoramas.
