Moriones Festival 2010 in Marinduque
The island province of Marinduque lies south of Quezon, east of Mindoro and north of Romblon. It features untouched beaches and islets, underwater caves, coral reefs, and therapeutic sulfur springs. Marinduqueños are known for their very hospitable nature, which is reflected in putong, a custom of “welcoming” where visitors are seated and crowned with flowers while local women dance and sing for them.
The island is also popular for the annual Moriones Festival, one of the most colorful festivals in the country, celebrated during Holy Week.
Southeast Asian Airlines (SEAIR), the country’s premiere leisure airline, started flights to Marinduque last October 17, 2009. It now flies Manila-Marinduque-Manila every Saturday, Tuesday and Thursday.
“SEAIR is doing a unique service to the country in support of its tourism development goals. We are committed to the mission of bringing travelers from the Philippines’ gateways to its many island destinations,” said Avelino Zapanta, President of SEAIR.
