Philippines Open tourist spots
World-famous tourist destinations in the Philippines are once again ready to welcome visitors.

Check out the list of all tourist spots open for travelers in the Philippines, along with who can visit each location based on the updated quarantine health and safety protocols in place to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 disease.

The Philippines’ Department of Tourism (DOT-Philippines) website lists 81 provinces in the country with accredited establishments and stakeholders who follow the safety protocols and precautionary measures prescribed by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Philippines’ Department of Health (DOH) to keep travelers safe in the midst of the global pandemic.

The site lists the travel protocols and other health measures for different locations in the country to reduce community transmission.

The Philippines was recently awarded the ‘Safe Travels’ stamp from the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC), granting approval of the country as a trusted global destination that follows strict health and hygiene protocols amid the novel coronavirus pandemic.

DOT on October 21, 2020, updated its Open Tourist Spots list and reminders for sightseers to stay aware of the health and safety protocols to protect the public’s health and well-being.

Among the popular tourist spots in the Philippines now open for leisure travel include Boracay, with new safety guidelines, Batangas’ famous dive spots, and Baguio City’s cool climate.

The DOT also released fresh guidelines for the accommodation of tourists of all ages on “staycation” in General Community Quarantine (GCQ) areas. Travelers can also refer to IATF’s Updated Quarantine Guidelines for all levels of community quarantine in the Philippines.

Travelers can visit DOT’s travel website here for the full list of open tourist spots with updates related to COVID-19 travel protocols.
