The songs in the playlists were chosen to represent the culture and sounds of different travel spots and also aim to serve as the soundtrack to one’s stories.

Listeners can jam to different genres of music in the curated playlists from road trip anthems, upbeat tunes, to love songs.

Those planning their next adventure can even travel back to the Philippines’ top beaches through the Boracay Beach Vibes, Onshore in La Union, Deep Dive in Palawan playlists, and many more.

“These tunes will allow listeners to evoke the getaways, secret spots, and homes away from home that every traveler can find somewhere across the 7,641 islands of the Philippines,” said Tourism Secretary Bernadette Romulo-Puyat in a news release on February 24, 2022.

The initial 10 Philippine Travel Spotify playlists include Manila Night Lights, Boracay Beach Vibes, Onshore in La Union, Cordillera Calm, The Pan-Philippine Highway Road Trip, Marilaque Bike Trail Mix, Balikbayan Juke Box, Counting Clouds in Camiguin, Wedding Vows in Tagaytay, and Deep Dive in Palawan.

The featured artists in the playlists include local acts such Eraserheads, Rico Blanco, Reese Lansangan, Noel Cabangon, The Itchyworms, and more.

The playlists also feature international singers with Filipino roots such as Toro y Moi, H.E.R., Olivia Rodrigo, Saweetie, Bella Poarch, and No Rome, among many others.

To create the playlists, the DOT enlisted the help of Filipino musicians including legendary rock DJ and Sandwich bassist Myrene Academia, podcast personality Ryan Joseph, music pundit Jocelyn Blwg, Matt San Pedro of Manila Community Radio and Transit Records, musicologist Patricia Brillante-Silvestre, and music producer Abdel Aziz.

Listen to the “Sounds More Fun in the Philippines” Playlist through the DOT’s official Spotify account, Tourism Philippines.

The DOT has also released Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response (ASMR) travel videos for Filipinos who miss the sights and sounds of travel.
