I just love all these new Department of Tourism videos. I think they are inventive and funny and cute and well-made. I love how it captures the ingenuity of the people and the general good-natured vibe of Filipinos. I like it. I really appreciate the effort and the fact that it is going around and really pushing our tourism forward.
I love the fact that there are more international airports popping up all over the country so you don’t have to stop in Manila before you go to the other places as well. Iloilo has its own international airport, as does Davao, Cebu, and up north as well, if I am not mistaken, like Cagayan, Isabela, and La Union.
If we can avoid letting people stop at Manila and flying from there to other places and allow them to go straight to the provinces where they can see the true beauty of the country, than I prefer it. At the same time, it would mean that more provinces would have to build accommodations, tourist spots, restaurants, and the like to support tourism. It’s money and employment and it keeps people in their provinces.
I’m all for it. And really, the Philippines is a gorgeous country. It really is.
