The Philippines was voted Best Diving Area in the recently concluded 28th Marine Diving Fair held in Ikebukuro, Japan.

Subscribers of Marine Diving Magazine selected the waters of the Philippine islands to receive the first prize at the Marine Diving Fair, Japan’s largest scuba diving event held from August 21 to 23, 2020.

The Philippines was lauded as the best overseas diving destination for its teeming marine biodiversity and scenic landscapes.

The Marine Diving Fair hosts plenty of activities for enthusiasts. Over 200 companies from all over the world come to promote their travel business at the event.

The Philippine booth at the fair joined over 200 companies from all over the world. It presented an underwater theme while following social distancing and safety guidelines.

The Department of Tourism (DOT) – Tokyo also conducted virtual meetings and staged the Philippine Mabuhay Reception to sustain market engagement in Japan.

This year’s Marine Diving Fair was supposed to take place in April but was rescheduled to August due to safety restrictions posed by COVID-19.

The Philippines made a splash at the 2019 World Travel Awards in Vietnam and bagged two titles including Asia’s Dive Destination. The country is also once again vying to reclaim the title of Asia’s Dive Destination this September 2020.
