Information about Davao through InfoText

March 13, 2009

The Department of Tourism and SMART has launched a Text Messaging Service that will help people get more information about Davao City.


InfoText Board is a program that enables local and even foreign tourists to immediately find answers to their questions regarding travel and tourism by the use of their mobile phone through SMS or text messaging.

This service is mostly intended for tourists so that they could have the information quickly and they don’t have to ask around.

But DOT and SMART won’t just fill-in the names of establishments, they will need to be accredited.

DOT then urged local tourist establishments like hotels, restaurants, tour operators to secure accreditation from the office for them to register in the InfoText Board. This serves as their ticket to be included in the advertisements and advisories given out by the DOT to its clients.

To get a list of accommodation, just text

DVOCITY INFO HOTEL to 700-DAVAO or 700-32826

Other information includes resort, inns, apartelle, tour operators, tour guides, restaurants, spa, sights, and transportation. 

I also blogged about this in my mobile blog: Migs Mobile Newtork
