Planning travel to the Philippines has been made easy by the revamped tourism website, Philippines.travel.
The redesigned website went live on Tuesday with a new look that focuses on traveler-friendly experience.
Philippines.travel has three main tabs:
- See & Do
- Where to Go
- Events & Festival
The “See & Do” tab features six tourism products of the country – Dive, Nature, Sun and Beach, Adventure, Food and Hospitality, and Events and Culture. These products are also highlighted in ten large image-centric carousel banners. Clicking on each product will lead the user to tourist destinations and activities that are readily available.
The “Where to Go” tab lets tourists explore the country through a virtual map, and get basic information on the 16 regions and provinces, including routes going there, nearby places to explore, and even where to stay.
The “Events & Festival,” guides tourists with dates, locations and routes, and fundamental information about the occasion.
The Department of Tourism launched the website on October 8 as the ultimate guide to Philippine travel.
“Our new tourism website, Philippines.travel, is a one-stop-shop for all your travel needs which includes information on our beautiful destinations to help you plan and book your next trip,” said DOT Secretary Bernadette Romulo-Puyat at the signing of the agreement with the group Guide to the Philippines.
The Department of Tourism report notes the Philippines.travel website will feature a booking system function for travelers where DOT-accredited tour operators and tourism establishments can be promoted.
Puyat also said the website should encourage more businesses to get their accreditation and to increase confidence among tourists looking to visit the country.
The Department of Tourism has initiated several projects to entice foreign travelers to the Philippines while following the path of sustainable tourism.
More recently, the DOT worked with viral vlogger Nas Daily for a feature on the country’s efforts to curb the negative impact of overtourism, engaged YouTube celebrity Mikey Bustos to promote Filipino food, while building up showcase travel destinations and farm tourism communities.
