Significance and Importance<br />As a culinary arts major, biome will be part of my work. We get our ingredients from the plants, trees and the oceans. Other than that biome will help us attract customers to eat at our hotel or restaurant. Having a good location is very important in putting up a culinary business. Some customers are very picky when it comes to the location of the hotel or the restaurant. It gives a soothing and comfortable feeling for others to having a great view while enjoying their food. When it comes in tourism, Philippines is one of the most visited countries. Tourists are very fond of going to the beach and we have many beautiful beaches in our country.<br />
