Acknowledgement
Promoting “Play Philippines” to the world requires a united effort and a dedicated service of all concerned citizens of this beautiful country. This 2009 Philippine Index of Sports Tourism Sites and Destination will not materialize without the many articles, pictures, images, notes and insights of people and institutions used or borrowed for the purpose of selflessly projecting the Philippines to the world as a one-stop-action destination where sports from A to Z (Angling to Zip Lines) can be learned, experienced and played anywhere across the Philippines. We deeply express our gratitude to all those whose work of art, books, publications and literature have been used to make this initial databank effort worthy of guiding those that seek information for the advancement of Philippine tourism and of our country’s tourism (business) industry. This effort is made to praise God for the blessings of topography that He has endowed to this country.
