With the opening of Cebu and the rest of the Philippines, Anjo World Theme Park projects growth as more and more people are now coming to the theme park.
“We are very positive of the prospects for Anjo World, which is now a known brand,” says Chester Lim, president of the Anjo World Theme Park.
Mr. Lim also sees the need to increase tourism confidence to enable the industry to recover from the adverse impact of the pandemic.
He expressed hope that the government will continue with its efforts to promote tourism since the sector has been a major contributor to the economy as well as help create thousands of jobs and promote small businesses.
Anjo World’s is now experiencing increasing number of guests as more and more people are going to the park, Lim added.
Cedric Reyes, head of sales and marketing for Anjo World, said they are now looking at going into collaboration with other industry stakeholders such as resorts in Mactan and Cordova.
In fact, Anjo World will be signing a memorandum of agreement with the Cebu Cordova Link Expressway Corp. (CCLEC) to establish a Sales Promotion Partnership entitled “BRIDGING THE FUN IN CEBU.”
Under this MOA, Anjo World will give Cebu Cordova Link Expressway (CCLEX) motorists a discount of P100 for every purchase of one Day Adventure Pass upon the presentation of a CCLEX toll receipt. However, each motorist can avail of the discount for a maximum of four tickets per receipt in per day.
The MOA will be in effect until November 29, 2022.
“We partnered with Anjo World as part of our vision of connecting communities and people. Through CCLEX, families from Mactan Island will now have a more accessible route to enjoying destinations and sights in the south, including Anjo World, truly bridging the fun that largely benefits Cebuanos,” says Allan G. Alfon, Cebu Cordova Link Expressway Corporation president and general manager.
CCLEX, an engineering marvel and being the longest and tallest bridgeway structure in in the country, has been a tourist attraction in itself, providing added value to the tourism industry in Cebu, Mr. Alfon pointed out.
“The 8.9-kilometer modern toll expressway is also seen to spur tourism activities in the southern part of Cebu Province as it provides direct access from Mactan Island to Cebu City’s South Road Properties,” he added.
With this MOA, Mr. Reyes says they are expecting a good number of guests from Mactan and Cordova.
Also, he disclosed that they will revive talks with Mactan resorts to tie up with them by giving discounts to their guests.
Even foreign guests are slowly coming back. “We are excited. Lately, we are getting Korean (guests) and a few Americans,” according to Mr. Reyes.
