Project Description: "The last thing on the minds of people before going on vacation is their safety. They tend to remember to bring along with them even the things that are not really needed for the trip and yet, they forget to keep in mind their security.

We don’t want our vacation to be ruined by an accident, do we? Pondering on this question, our team aims to unite our government officials and the citizens of Baguio to help in securing tourist destinations of the city so that more tourists will be visiting these sites. Through our website, we hope to air our sentiments to our leaders that they should not be concentrating on developing new tourist destinations but should also enhance the safety and security of the places that already exist. Likewise, we would like to catch the attention of our viewers and inform them of several important security measures when going to tourist destinations.

The first thing our group did was to list down the tourist attractions found in Baguio City. After that, we visited an attraction or two whenever we can, took pictures of the place and interviewed the tourists and the employees of that tourist destination especially the security guards. After that, we collated all the information into a website. We hope that pour website will help enhance the security of the tourist attractions here in Baguio City. When the tourist attractions are secured, more tourists will come to visit the city and when this happens, local people will be able to interact and be friends with one another. Furthermore, Baguio tourist attractions will serve as avenues where people from different places will meet, thus, diplomacy will be promoted.

Hopefully, our website will open a door to diplomacy by promoting the numerous Baguio tourist attractions, whether known or newly discovered because tourist will feel safe while enjoying. "
