The Philippines is characterized by uneven levels of development wherein some areas enjoy certain degree
of affluence, while in others, some communities still remain in a state of underdevelopment. Although the abundance of resources, natural and man-made, may be considered the biggest contributing factor to economic development, most people believe that good governance is the most important key to the over-all growth and development of a community.

The Lakbay Aral was conceptualized to provide an opportunity for LGU’s to exchange views/ideas among themselves and help each other determine what good practices can best be adopted in their respective area/ sphere of influence.


This proposal aims to make Lakbay Aral a great learning and memorable experience for participants at the least possible cost to the government. This can be done by dealing directly with LGU’s, thus, doing away with middlemen and avoiding additional cost to the government.

Also, CHT will arrange visits to places that will enable participant to familiarize themselves with Bicol’s rich history and cultural heritage.


The study tour shall be limited to the two major provinces / cities of Bicol: Legazpi (Albay) and Naga (Camarines Sur). It will include visits to government units and agencies, educational institutions, museums, churches, business establishments (small, medium, and large), as well as tourist destinations.
