TRECE MARTIRES CITY, Cavite, (PIA) -- Metro Pacific Tollways South (MPT South), in partnership with the Department of Tourism CALABARZON (DOT Calabarzon) and the Department of the Interior and Local Government Region 4-A (DILG IV-A), joins the celebration of the National Tourism Month this September 2022 thru "Biyaheng South" Experiential Tour. 

Co-presented by Millennial Resorts Corporation and with sponsors GAC Motor Philippines and The Adventure, MPT South brought its 'Ka-Biyaheros' that comprised of online content creators (Explore With Chelo PH, Hungry Byaheros, Lakwatsero Caviteno, All About Cavite, The Hungry Traveler PH, GO Cavite, GO Tagaytay, GO Batangas, and GO Philippines) and lifestyle media partners (TripZilla and Lifestyle Inquirer) for a two-day ultimate road trip experience headed towards the different tourist destinations in the progressive provinces of South, easily accessible via the Cavite-Laguna Expressway (CALAX) toll road network.  

The two-day road trip started with a tour of the sustainable headquarters of MPT South, the MPT South HUB, a LEED Gold certified, 4-storey building located in Imus City, Cavite. The hub is recognized for its innovation and green technology: solar panel field, the building's biophilic design, a dedicated charging station for electric vehicles (EV), and its highly advanced traffic control room. 

Participants continued the trip on board the world-class and luxurious vehicles of GAC Motor Philippines ranging from SUVs and vans. It drove through the operational segments of CALAX heading towards Biyaheng South's itinerary in Cavite and Batangas. 

‘Biyaheng South’ took the team on a cultural trip and visited a secret garden place, a Cordillera-inspired "Living Museum" in Silang, Cavite called Shambala Silang. The enchanting place let the Ka-Biyaheros experience nature, local art, and authentic Filipino cuisine altogether. The squad also looked into the major attractions of Yoki’s Farm in Mendez, Cavite, a ten hectares farm, zoo, and a museum rolled into one, wherein they had a chance to be young again by interacting up-close with a variety of species from farm to exotic animals.  

Less than two hours ride from Cavite, participants also headed to Calatagan, Batangas- famous for scenic seaside tourist spots and idyllic beaches. The squad witnessed the beautiful golden sunset, overlooking the sea at Cape Santiago Lighthouse, which stands atop a cliff by the shore of Calatagan and is one of the oldest lighthouses in the country that is still operational

An overnight stay at the Crusoe Cabins in Calatagan South Beach (CaSoBe) by Millennial Resorts allowed the Ka-Biyahero team to relax, refresh, and rejuvenate after a long day’s trip. Crusoe Cabins feature sustainable upcycled container vans transformed into innovative rooms that blend onto rustic seascape.  

This year's Biyaheng South Experiential Tour ended the trip by participating in a Tai Chi Gong class and indulging the squad for an ecotherapy, healthy food preparation classes like juice making, in one of the "Most Relaxing Spas in Asia" named by CNN Go- the Nurture Wellness Village located in Tagaytay.
