Dagupan City Mayor Brian Lim said the Dawel River Cruise was discontinued because of politics.
The Dagupan politiko said the city government is set to relaunch the project next month.
The river cruise was originally started by Lim’s father, former mayor Benjamin Lim.
“Sometimes good ideas are not continued because it does not come from you , which is not a good mentality to have. The river cruise is an example of a good project but it was not continued,” he said.
“Originally, it was BSL’s idea. There will be fish-feeding at the end of the cruise, restaurants on the side that will serve the famous Dagupan bangus. I recommended a zipline criss-crossing the river as part of future plans,” Lim added.
