PH vies for six nominations for the WTA 2023

MANILA, Philippines—The Philippines continues to dominate the world stage as another year has been added to its list of nominations for the prestigious World Travel Awards (WTA) under Asia category.  

This 2023, the Philippines is vying for six nominations, namely: Asia’s Leading Island Destination, Asia’s Leading Beach Destination, Asia’s Leading Dive Destination, Intramuros as Asia’s Leading Tourist Attraction, Cebu as Asia’s Leading Wedding Destination, and the Department of Tourism as Asia’s Leading Tourist Board. 

Tourism Secretary Christina Garcia Frasco then enjoins Filipinos, as well as tourists who have been to and have plans of visiting the Philippines to vote for the country.  

“We are grateful to the World Travel Awards for reaffirming the global importance of the Philippines in tourism and travel. This is evinced in our stunning landscapes, award-winning beaches, mega biodiverse dive destinations, diverse culture, rich heritage, and hospitality excellence. The Philippines’ nominations in the World Travel Awards Asia is a testament to the hard work of the men and women of the tourism industry in the public and private sector across our many communities in the country, and an affirmation of the Marcos administration’s thrust towards tourism transformation. I encourage our fellow Filipinos and friends from all over the world to vote for the Philippines!”, she said.  

For four consecutive years, the Philippines bagged the World’s Leading Dive Destination and is also currently the World’s Leading Beach Destination. 

Likewise, the WTA has been acknowledging the tourism wonders of the Philippines since its first nomination in 2013 until present, defeating even the tourism giants in the Caribbean, the Americas, and Europe.  

The casting of votes can be done through until July 23, 2023.
