An alluring recommendation from President Ferdinand R. Marcos to Filipinos is to explore, travel, and learn about the Philippines’ beauty.

Increasing local tourism will spur economic growth, according to Marcos, who stated this in his weekly vlog on Saturday night.

Always keep in mind that visiting the Philippines would help us continue to recuperate, he added. “Lagi pong tandaan, sa bawat pagbiyahe at pamamasyal natin sa napakagandang Pilipinas, tuluy-tuloy ang ating pagbangon,” he said.

“A huge portion of our income comes from our fellow Filipinos, so I will continue to encourage all of you to visit our beautiful tourist destinations,” he continued. “Mula sa kapwa nating Pilipino ang bulto na pumapasok na kita kung kaya’t hindi ako titigil na hikayatin kayong lahat na bisitahin pa ang napakag

Marcos advised using the four-day weekend, which includes “Undas” (All Saints’ Day), to tour the nation’s top attractions.

On Monday and Tuesday, respectively, October 31 and November 1 are non-working holidays.

“Our nation is under the Undas’ umpisahan. Is there a reason why October 31 was designated as a special, non-working holiday? It’s so that I can start traveling with my family and making travel plans for our upcoming events. I made October 31 a special day off from work so that we could spend more time with family and prepare for our vacation “explained Marcos.

more access to provinces

Marcos promised to keep visiting provincial tourism promotion events and to open up new provinces to visitors in an effort to draw in more visitors.

“If a province becomes more accessible, more tourists would be attracted to visit, and more money will flow in,” Marcos said. “Kaya kapag mas madaling puntahan, mas maraming mae-enganyo na dumalaw, mas marami ring papasok na pera sa probinsya.”

“Tinukoy na natin ang industriya ng turismo bilang isa sa mga magiging susi natin para pasiglahin muli ang ekonomiya lalo na sa kanayunan ay sa simula’t simula pa lang. (From the start, we already identified the tourism sector as one of the main drivers to revive our economy in the countryside. We believe that everyone should be aware of how to go about doing business and conducting trade with integrity. If we can grow our tourism industry, we can generate more jobs “Added he.

Encourage PH

According to Department of Tourism (DOT) figures, domestic tourism is still increasing, with local travel reaching 37.27 million in 2021, up 38.16 percent from the 26.98 million trips counted in 2020, the year the Covid-19 pandemic broke out.

Since it opened its doors to leisure travel in February, the nation has also hosted about 1.6 million visitors from abroad.

South Koreans (240,469) and Americans (335,327) are currently the top two foreign nationalities visiting the Philippines, with a combined 335,327 tourists reported between February and October 17.

Additionally, there were 24,599 Chinese tourists during the same time frame, moving them up to the second place.

In his remarks at the Philippine Tourism Industry Convergence Reception on October 17, Marcos asserted, “I am confident because I have said this many, many times: There is no warmer, more poignant sight than the smile of a Filipino, and it is something that we can introduce to the world.”

Marcos promised to keep pushing the Philippines as a tourist destination open to both domestic and international visitors.

“On top of our recovery, my dream is to reintroduce the Philippines to the world,” Marcos added. “Higit pa sa pagbangong inaasam, ang pangarap ko ay maipakilala muli ang Pilipinas sa buong globe.”
