This slogan has become quite popular nationally and internationally to promote the tourism in the Philippines, but I think that it not only a slogan but a fact. As a Filipina myself, I can definitely tell you all that it is not just a slogan but an actuality. Here are 5 reasons as to why “It’s more fun in the Philippines!” and why you guys should consider coming and exploring this beautiful country.
- The hospitality of Filipinos – Us Filipinos are very are very open and welcoming when it comes to our family, friends or guests. Filipinos tend to spoil their guests whenever the latter comes to their house. For instance, if a friend of the family comes to visit, the host family would prepare an actual feast for that person, even if he is just coming by himself, or when a family member would sleep over, they would even offer the person to sleep on their bed so that they would feel comfortable and at home. Filipinos’ hospitality plays a big role in making one’s experience in the Philippines unforgettable.
2. The beaches – The Philippines is a tropical country, which means it has the ideal weather to spend a day on the many beaches in the area. One of the most famous beaches in the country is called “Boracay”, where many tourist visits during their travel and it also where many national celebrities come during their vacation. Other beaches like the El Nido and Coron Palawan, Puerto Galera in Oriental Mindoro or the pink beach in Sta. Cruz, Zamboanga are all the perfect spots to go to if you are planning on relaxing or just for leisure. These beaches are truly paradise on earth!
3. Festivals – The Philippines hosts more than 50 festivals each year. These festivals are all full of life and different bright colors. Lively and loud music are also part of the festivals whenever there is one. Dancing, singing, and food are part of celebrating these festive festivals and it would not be one without these aspects.
