The Philippines won the Best Dive Destination Award given by the Diving, Resort, and Travel (DRT) Show, the largest international diving exhibition which provides industry stakeholders greater support and encourages more people to become passionate divers to champion marine ecology.
The country won over Malaysia, Indonesia, Japan, and Maldives to claim recognition for the Philippines’ dive waters and offerings to travelers.
The Philippine Department of Tourism announced the newest award received by the country during the DRT Show in Malaysia last February 24-26, 2023.
The newest award adds to the winning streak of the Philippines at the World Travel Awards where it was named the World’s Leading Dive Destination and Asia’s Leading Dive Destination for the fourth straight year in 2022.
The Philippines’ co-exhibitors during the DRT Show included Lalaguna Villas Luxury Dive Resort & Spa (Puerto Galera), Fisheye Divers (Boracay), Dolphinlee Aquatic (Malaysia-based dive agent), Moby Tek Dive (Malaysia-based dive agent), Kokay’s Maldito Dive Resort (Malapascua), Scandi Divers (Puerto Galera), and the country’s flag-carrier, Philippine Airlines.
