Technology continues to revolutionize aspects of our life and Tourism isn’t exempted from this.
Launched in celebration of the city’s 80th Charter Day March 15 ,”Davao Guide” – the phone application for everyone who wants to discover the city which bylines the most powerful man now in the Philippines, is now free to download.
Created by InnoPub Media in partnership with the Davao City government and wireless leader – Smart Communications (Smart), the app sets to amp up the trotting experience of the growing 1.7 M tourists (2015) who wont just be enjoying the city’s lauded orderliness and civil calmness but from now on with this app, are “tourism connected” along with the 1.63M Davaoenos, 2,444 sq km wide. Congruently, Smart have already transformed their network in Davao, providing high-speed mobile access to digital services and information via LTE.
Talking about revolutionary mechanism, newly-installed site markers containing quick response codes and near-field communications stickers have been deployed in select areas within the city. The markers trigger the download of tourism and historical information via phone scanning.
“The project is consistent with two of the City Government’s priority sectors which are tourism and education. We are happy that Smart and InnoPub are helping us create a digital platform to push tourism and education not only to the Davaoenos but also to the local and international tourists. Through the Davao Guide app, the public would know about the people of Davao, our history, culture and what the city can offer in terms of tourism and investment” said Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte.
