Philippines tourist spots nominated at World Travel Awards

22 February 2023 -

The Philippines and several of its tourist destinations have been nominated anew for major awards in the 30th World Travel Awards (WTA). The awards have nominated the Philippines for the Asian category of Leading Beach Destination, which it also won in the 2022 WTA in Vietnam.

The country is also vying for Asia’s Leading Dive Destination accolade, which the country has won in the last four years.

“These recurring nominations clearly manifest the growing global travel demand into the Philippines, one that we aim to sustain in the coming days through the initiatives we have laid out for the tourism industry’s recovery and transformation post-pandemic,” Tourism Secretary Christina Frasco said.

Cebu received the nomination for Asia’s Leading Wedding Destination while the famous Walled City of Intramuros was again nominated for Asia’s Leading Tourist Attraction.
