“Tara na! Biyahe Tayo!” A common phrase used in the Philippines indulging explorers- foreigners or natives to travel. Traveling, a locomotive action of the body which is directly proportional to the mind’s drive to depart from a place and reach a place of choice according to the standards of man’s senses. This gives justice to the Philippine tourism as the Philippines have and have grown numerous sets of splendored locations well-suited for traveling and excursions. Though the Philippines experiences several economic and political issues, this doesn’t lessen its tourism’s worth and beauty; from the brilliance of white sand beaches, to the towering mountain ranges and terraces.
The Philippine tourism is undoubtedly increasing as year passes backed up by the data released by the Department of Tourism telling that on the first quarter of 2011 1.3 million foreign tourists have docked in the land and chose to visit the Philippines’ riches. This output is said to mount up to the last months of the year. The increase of tourists in the country is affected by different factors employed by the government, by the economy and most excessively by the people. Filipinos have a great command in the language branded as the bridge language of the world. Filipinos well understand and speak English making this an asset for foreign transactions and makes communication easier between foreign tourists and the natives. Another factor that should be counted on the Philippine tourism uprising is the lower cost of living Filipinos have. This makes the tourists’ money more manageable for them because of the cheap fees for hotel accommodations, convenient food and lower fees for traveling expenses.
The Filipinos’ intangible genuineness of being hospitable people keeps it richer than any other nations. There may be some fraud, but the some couldn’t embody the whole, and that’s what makes Philippine tourism remarkable.
