It’s More Fun In The Philippines!

50 Things To Do On Your Vacation


Its More Fun In The PhilippinesThe summer months herald the beginning of the peak tourist season in the Philippines.

From all walks of life and all parts of the world, people come over to get a taste of what this small archipelagic country on the edge of the Pacific Ocean has to offer.

In line with the government’s desire to throw its doors open to travellers and adventurers, the Department of Tourism launched a new campaign.

They asked Filipinos and foreigners who have been to the country to contribute their own experiences by telling the world why it’s more fun in the Philippines.

While there are some questions as to the originality of the phrase, this has not prevented the viral spread of the campaign. In less than two days, the slogan was trending worldwide on Twitter. Facebook users also joined by uploading wall photos of Philippine sceneries, events and activities with the slogan splashed across the picture.





So what truly makes the Philippines a unique, amazing and special place to see?

Why do people love to come back for more?
