Mayor Jimmy Padchanan Jr. issued Executive Order (EO) No, 2021-12 that reopened the tourist sites effective March 15   with the probationary period until April 15, 2021.
 
One of its main attractions is the Mt. Nagchajan View Deck where one can take a breathtaking view of the Mayoyao Rice Terraces.
 
Mt. Nagchajan is also enlisted as a World War II Memorial site by the National Historical Institute of the Philippines, and honored during the town festival  called “Lenong” which means “Peace”.
 
The municipality also takes pride of its other tourist sites like the Tenogtog and A’Pfaw Mahencha Waterfalls, Mayoyao Museum and the Khohang Garden and View Deck. 
 
Residents interested to visit the tourists sites   must pre-book and register with the Municipal Tourism Office (MTO) at least three days before the planned visit.
 
In April 2020, Padchanan Jr. issued EO No. 17 for the temporary lockdown on the entry of local and foreign tourists in the municipality as a preventive measure from spread of the COVID-19 virus.
