There have been many challenges to the Philippines‘ tourism industry in recent years, from pandemic-induced disruptions to ravaging weather. But these past events have also brought to light the country’s solidarity. Leaders, NPOs, ordinary citizens—Filipinos help Filipinos.
This solidarity is what fuels the Philippines’ resilience, and we look forward to brighter days as everybody rises back up together. Tourism will bounce back, and the landscapes that tourists find now and in the future are reflections of the country’s unyielding beauty.
Here are the Philippine destinations we look forward to revisiting soon.
