DirectRooms.com invites tourists and travellers to visit the town of Poro on the 19th January 2011 to witness the celebrations of the traditional Tagbo Festival.
The whole of Poro comes to life during the festival, and this is the perfect time to visit this traditional Cebu town.
Like many of Cebu’s festivals, the origins of the Tagbo Festival are described by a local legend. The word tagbo actually means to meet, and the Tagbo Festival commemorates the day when two warring tribes met to resolve their differences and decided to build a town together at the meeting place.
However, the legend states that the meeting was actually orchestrated by a giant called Panganuron, who was keen for peace to return to the area. The residents of Poro have enjoyed a long period of peace, and the annual festival marks this fact.
A large number of excellent Cebu hotels can be found both in and around the town of Poro, meaning that visitors will have plenty of accommodation options. This charming traditional town is known for its intense natural beauty and visitors are sure to receive a warm welcome by those who live there.
Lek Boonlert, the marketing head at DirectRooms.com commented: “People will travel to Poro from all over Cebu to take part in the Tagbo Festival. While there are plenty of hotels to choose from, they are sure to fill up quickly and online booking is by far the best way to secure a room as well as a great rate.”
