Escolta – a street rich in history

QUEZON City, Philippines (Eagle News Service, June 1) – Mentioned in Jose Rizal’s famous novels “Noli Me Tangere” and “El Filibusterismo“, Escolta is truly a street that is steeped in history.

The historic east-west street is located in the old downtown district of Binondo, Manila. During the Spanish era, it was known as calle de la Escolta. The name came from the Spanish word “escoltar“, which means “to escort“.

Established in 1594, Escolta is one of the oldest streets in Manila.

Escolta is the thriving commercial heart of the country during the colonial period. With a high concentration of immigrant merchants, mainly from Fujian, China. These merchants made their fortune off the Manila-Acapulco galleon trade.

You can say that Escolta is the precursor of the malls of today. Visitors walk down the street, looking at the many shops and boutiques full of goods from China, Europe and Latin America.

As the centuries pass, Escolta continued to flourish and became a fashionable business district hosting the city’s tallest buildings as well as the Manila Stock Exchange. Soon, modern department stores replaced the shops and an electric tram line, the tranvia, plied the street.

For those who want to immerse themselves in the romance and nostalgia of bygone eras, walking tours of the Escolta is available. The street also gives a perfect glimpse of early skyscraper designs in the Philippines.

The 91-meter falls possesses a rugged beauty. One can take a scenic one-hour boat ride to visit Pagsanjan. Plying the Bumbungan and Balanac rivers on your wooden canoe, you can take in the beauty of native trees, vines and wildlife.

 

The river ride back down is even more exciting as your wooden canoe goes swiftly by, sped along by fourteen rapids.

DPRK government to promote Mount Kumgang tourism

DPRK_government_to_promote_Mount_Kumgang_tourismJUNE 1 (Reuters) — The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) held an investment seminar Thursday (May 28) aimed at attracting foreign investment and visitors to Wonsan-Mount Kumgang international tourist zone.

The zone’s investment programs, two-thirds of which relate to tourism, include an amusement park, a nature park, a bathing beach, a golf course, yachting and even casinos.

As a world-notable tourist attraction, Mount Kumgang used to be a symbol of amicable relations between DPRK and neighboring Republic of Korea (ROK).

ROK tourists began traveling to Mount Kumgang by cruise ship in 1998, and multinational conglomerate Hyundai was granted a 50-year monopoly for operating the tourist spot.

An estimated 1.93 million ROK travelers visited the mountain over the following decade.

In 2008, however, an ROK tourist was killed by DPRK soldiers after mistakenly entering a military area. The ROK then temporarily suspended trips to Mount Kumgang.

In 2011, DPRK authorities retracted Hyundai’s operating license and established the Mount Kumgang international tourist zone.

One year later, the tourist zone re-opened to the public in a relatively quiet state.

Although two duty-free stores invested in by Chinese enterprises have since closed, the situation is now gradually changing as the number of tourists keeps growing.

“There will be 150 to 200 people [visiting the store] when tourists come here to travel,” said a salesperson at a duty-free shop.

Besides the international tourist zone, other venues showcasing DPRK characteristics serve as tourist attractions.

“We went to the persimmon village in the DPRK, which was listed on the travel agenda. I thought it was really good, and I played with children there too,” said a tourist from Zhengzhou, central China’s Henan Province.

As the tourist season gets into full swing, DRPK will open more direct, chartered flights.

So far, cities in China with direct DPRK flights include Shanghai, Zhengzhou and Harbin.

“There were few tourist groups in the past, and now we have a Zhengzhou-Pyongyang chartered flight, and it’s the first time we visit the country,” said another tourist from Zhengzhou.
