With an estimated 11,000 visitors in the Philippines to watch the 30th Southeast Asian (SEA) Games, the Department of Tourism (DOT) is making the most of the opportunity to promote the best of what the country has to offer, with the launch of a new microsite.
In a statement, Tourism Secretary Bernadette Romulo Puyat talked about the site and how it helps encourage SEA Games visitors to explore and experience more of the Philippines.
"The soonest they step in the country, our guests already have a glimpse of what the Philippines has to offer," said Puyat. "What we want to show them is that all these sporting hubs that they have visited and the Filipino hospitality they have experienced are just a fraction of the fun that awaits them. They can now experience first-hand the culture of sustainable tourism that is making the Philippines a preferred destination among visitors. With the tourism website that we have just launched, their Philippine destination wish list is just a click away."
The site features attractions, activities, and tour packages that they can check out while in the locations of the SEA Games, namely Manila, Clark, and Subic. Land transfers and accredited hotels are also listed on the site.
