Department of Tourism Philippines

We entered Vietnam market since 2010. After 6 years promoting the five destinations: Manila, Cebu, Bohol, Palawan, and Boracay,
we have gained the total Vietnamese arrivals double rising from about 17,000 (2010) to 34,000 (2016). 

The Philippines stands at the crossroads of the developed western world and the Orient. It lies in the heart of Southeast Asia, stretching more than 1,840 kilometers. Composed of 7,107 islands, the Philippines is readily accessible to the different capitals of the world. Its three main islands are Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao. We have two seasons: Dry season is from November to May, Wet season is from June to October.

Our Beaches
We have the fourth largest coastline in the world. At 36,289 kilometers, you can explore hundreds of warm, tropical, islands and find a beach all to yourself.

Our Culture
Filipino Culture is filled with color. Just take a look around any city here – from our iconic jeepneys, tricycles, and bancas (outrigger boats), to our food and fiestas. We’re bright, happy people; and it shows!

Water Activities
Anything you can dream of doing underwater, or over; it is possible here! Scuba diving? We have some of the world’s best sites, from World War II wrecks to UNDESCO World Heritage Reefs. Surfing. Windsurfing. Kiteboarding. Of course, there’s always swimming – have your pick of whale sharks, dolphins, sea cows, and hundreds of species of fish and coral.

Our Lifestyle
Filipinos love to celebrate! Whether on the beach, the street, the mountainside, or city, you’re sure to find a great party. It won’t be too hard to make friends because we’re one of the friendliest people on earth!

Nature & Adventure
An underground river. Chocolate Hills that are limestone. Sunken underwater islands. And a lake within a volcano within a lake. You’ll never run out of places to explore because nature is definitely more fun here!
