The Department of Tourism (DOT) launched the Manila leg of the Philippines Hop-On, Hop Off project on July 6 that culminated in festive Filipino-themed ceremonies at Robinsons Manila. As the biggest mall in the country’s capital, Robinsons Manila offers local and foreign tourists a wide array of shopping, dining, and entertainment options and the most convenient access to Manila’s historic and cultural sites.

The launch event was attended by DOT Undersecretary Shahlimar Hofer Tamano, DOT Undersecretary Myra Paz Abubakar, DOT Regional Director for NCR Sharlene Zabala-Batin and other key officers from the DOT, Manila City government, tourism organizations and Robinsons Malls. Robinsons Manila is the first stop of the Hop On Hop Off Service, which also goes to CCP Star City, Raja Sulayman, Luneta Park, Malacañang Heritage, Manila City Hall, National Museum, Jones Bridge Escolta, Binondo, and Intramuros.
