Binalonan may not have been blessed with natural attractions such as beaches, lakes, and mountains, but this does not stop the Municipality in creating tourism programs. Mayor Ramon “Mon-Mon” V. Guico III believes so much in the town’s HUMAN RESOURCE and thus laid the foundations, the impetus for a comprehensive tourism program.
The University Town is in itself a tourism program. Students from other towns and cities who will go to Binalonan to study will be like long-stay tourists who will spend their money on food, transportation, accommodation, clothing and supplies. This will boost the local economy.
The town’s plaza and parks will be improved and rehabilitated, a project that has started with the Public Auditorium, in order to create a “Garden Municipality.” Wifi will be made available in the Rock Garden, Auditorium, Food Terminal, Municipal Hall Complex, and the UEP campus.
In the long term, the following tourism projects will be mounted by Mayor Mon-Mon:
While the abovementioned plans are still upcoming projects, the town is continually sourcing tourism budgets and increasing its local income to fund all these in the future. In the meantime, having established hotels, having an airport (the only airport in Pangasinan II), are signs that the Guico administration has started the important foundations for Binalonan tourism to grow.
