SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO—The Philippines’ Department of Tourism once again brought in world-class Filipino artists to attract Filipino-American travelers and tourists, this time partnering with Resorts World Manila (RWM), the “premier one-stop, nonstop lifestyle and tourism destination in Manila.”

RWM’s “Thrill the World Roadshow,” has been traveling Stateside to prove just how true the tagline “It’s More Fun in the Philippines” really is.

On hand to greet the attendees at the Roadshow held at Fort McKinley Restaurant here were VP for Marketing Martin Paz, Public Relations Manager Archie Nicasio and Deputy Consul General of San Francisco Jaime Ramon Ascalon.

Since its opening in 2009, the resort-casino, located right across the Ninoy Aquino International Airport, has become an attraction for its nonstop, multi-entertainment venues—theater, the 24/7 cinema, music halls and mall.

The resort’s Roadshow featured Bryson Andres, an electro acoustic violinist and YouTube sensation (Andres, whose video has already earned over three million hits) and tenor heartthrob Jon Joven, a third of the power vocal trio “Primo.”

With them wais the multiracial Ms. Resorts World Manila 2012, Alexandra Salmeron, who speaks Spanish, German, English and Tagalog.

In Manila, Joven and Andres regularly perform in the live act ensemble “The Legends” and “Rock of ’80s” at the hip and happening Bar 360, while Alexandra Salmeron serves as the integrated lifestyle hub’s ambassador of goodwill, engaging in charity work and extending her support to the chosen beneficiaries of Resorts World Manila.

Prior to hitting the San Francisco Bay Area, RWM’s Roadshow graced the Philippine-American Exposition, which was held at the LAX Convention Center last Sept. 7 and 8. It will soon be at the “TFC OK GO USA” event, which will be held in San Francisco in Ocotber.

Resorts World Manila introduced their Balikbayan Kapamilya, which offers enticing getaway via www.tfc.tv and its promo link.

Hotels within the complex

“The premier integrated lifestyle hub” is home to three hotel brands: the all-suite six-star Maxims Hotel; the five-star brand Marriott Hotel Manila; and Remington Hotel, which offers cozy and superb accommodations at affordable value.

RWM also offers a wide range of culinary fare, with a variety of sumptuous dining options of over 50 food and beverage outlets ranging from international fine dining to casual quick-service restaurants.

Inside Resorts World Manila is The Newport Mall, which features high fashion and international luxury brands and the Newport Cinemas with stadium seating and ultramodern cinema technology.

Another venue is the 1,500-seater Newport Performing Arts Theater (NPAT), which boasts state-of-the-art lights and sounds innovations and the largest LED wall in all of Southeast Asia. For those who look for simpler entertainment, there’s Bar 360, open 24/7 and located at the casino ground floor.

RWM has the whole family in mind, though. At the GameZoo amusement center, one will be mesmerized by multidimensional virtual rides, an assortment of arcade games, a soft play area for toddlers and more exciting activities for kids of all ages.
