MANILA, Philippines- Itinanghal ang Pilipinas bilang World’s Leading Dive Destination at World’s Leading Beach Destination ngayong 2022 sa 29th World Travel Awards Grand Final Gala Ceremony sa Muscat, Oman, kamakailan.

“These global victories for the Philippines evince the unparalleled beauty of our country and the distinct warmth of the Filipino people. We sincerely thank the World Travel Awards and everyone from all over the world whose vote of confidence is timely as the Philippines fully opens its arms to welcome tourists to our shores,” pahayag ni Tourism Secretary Christina Garcia Frasco.

“Under the vision of President Ferdinand Marcos Jr., among the Department of Tourism’s objectives are to further enhance the development and promotion of key destinations and to equalize development by supporting lesser-known areas across our regions. These Awards are a source of inspiration for us in the Department of Tourism to work even harder as the Marcos administration ushers in the resurgence of the tourism industry as a major pillar of economic growth and source of livelihood for millions of Filipinos. As we anticipate the influx of more tourists, we shall continue the work to improve the overall tourist experience in the Philippines, and herald the best of the Filipino brand to the world,” dagdag niya.

Bilang World’s Leading Beach Destination, dinaig naman ng Pilipinas ang iba pang beaches sa buong mundo, kabilang ang mga dati nang awardees gaya ng Maldives, The Algarve sa Portugal, Jamaica, Galapagos Islands sa Equador, at Turks and Caicos Islands.
