TACURONG CITY, Philippines –– The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) in Region 12 said it has completed a tourism road project in Tacurong, the component city of Sultan Kudarat province.

In a report posted on its official Facebook page, the DPWH XII said the 0.87–kilometer tourism road project “provides better access to beautiful tourist spots in Barangay Passi and Barangay Baras in Tacurong City.”

It said that the completed road project leads to the city’s three famous tourist destinations, the Monte Vicenteau Resort, the Baras Bird Sanctuary and the Genalin Park and Rescue Center.

The said DPWH–Department of Tourism (DOT) convergence project, having an allocation of P19–Million, has transformed nearly a kilometer of dusty and rough road into a two–lane concrete tourism road.

The project was implemented by DPWH–Sultan Kudarat 1st District Engineering Office.


The Monte Vicenteau Resort is popularly known for its cozy recreational spots surrounded by exotic fruits, like “durian” and “lanzones”. It is located in Barangay New Passi. It reportedly offers huge and elevated pools for both adults and kids.

The Baras Bird Sanctuary in Barangay Baras is a “must–go” place for bird lovers. It is a place where you can see more than 20,000 migratory birds inside the sanctuary’s jungle. It is just seven kilometers away from the city proper.

The city has also 10–hectare Genalin Park and Rescue Center, reportedly known as the “largest zoo park in Southern Philippines.” 

The construction of tourism access roads is part of the DPWH–DOT joint effort to advance rural and urban developments through tourism endeavors that generate employment opportunities for rural and urban folks. [Photo: DPWH XII]
