“What’s not to love about the Philippines, we have our spectacular sights spread across 7,100 islands. There is so much to see and experience. But how do we convince people who have already seen it all? Based on statistics, most of those who have gone to the Philippines were upon the recommendation of a friend. So we encourage all of you to bring home a friend to the Philippines." Said DOT Assistant Secretary, Eden David.

The Philippines is one unique nation endowed with amazing people and breathtaking sceneries. Her rich and diverse culture, the abundance of nature and resources has made her even more a distinct and an exceptional land worthy of your time to explore and discover. 

When I was asked why should I bring home a friend? I wholeheartedly say, it’s about time you should experience the beautiful contradictions of Filipino culture and live through the warmth of its people.

Mabuhay and welcome home!
