Filipinos highlight tourism potential

Filipino students at King Saud University (KSU) have been helping the Philippines Embassy to promote the western Pacific nation as a tourist destination.
“Twenty-four scholars took part in the 7th People Heritage Exhibition at KSU recently, with other foreign students participating,” Mohamad A. Guinomla, Philippine Embassy cultural officer, told Arab News yesterday.
The students organized a colorful booth, displaying posters of favorite destinations in the Philippines. Hundreds of tourism brochures, pamphlets and CDs provided by the embassy were distributed to guests.
Guinomla and the Filipino scholars welcomed Abdullah bin Salman Al-Salman, KSU vice president for educational and academic affairs, during the opening ceremony of the event.
Filipino students entertained the university official with a native Philippines dance called tinikling. They also played ethnic musical instruments.
