Places like products also possess trademarks. If products have brands and labels, places are likewise given a certain tag or image by the general public. In the Philippines, every region, province, city, down to the barangay, are also associated with a certain image. These images are attributed to the physical environment, culture, traditions and even the goods and services uniquely offered by the place. When beaches are being talked about, a typical Filipino would think of places such as Palawan, Boracay, Batangas, Bohol, and Puerto Galera. Historical artifacts in the Philippines are connected with the antique houses of Vigan, walls of Intramuros, Corregidor and Mount Samat in Bataan, and Magellan’s cross in Cebu. Although the Philippines is a tropical country, people seeking for a different weather condition initially consider Baguio and Tagaytay as a point of destination. Laguna is associated with hot springs and Buko pie, Dagupan Pangasinan is known for its Bangus, the best Philippine mangoes are registered with Guimaras, and delectable Filipino delicacies are found in Pampanga. Feasts and celebrations are associated with Lucban, Quezon for the Pahiyas, Fertility Dance and Rites in Obando Bulacan, and the MassKara Festival of Bacolod City.
