‘Regenerative’ tourism to help recovery route

Teeming with more than 7,000 islands that offer unique destinations and experiences, there’s no doubt the Philippines is a top choice when it comes to nature and adventure-based travel. This bodes well for the country as tourism officials see this niche becoming the trend under the new normal.

The Department of Tourism said adventurous activities are “very suitable” to the demands of the new normal of travel as these are mostly done outdoors, promote conservation of nature, and lean away from mass tourism trends.

During the hybrid Adventure and Travel Conference of the Pacific Asia Travel Association, DOT Undersecretary Benito Bengzon, Jr. said, “We have a wide range of nature attractions that provides endless opportunities for the kind of travel experience tourists will be looking for– open-air, well-ventilated activities, low density but high-value kind of experiences, the mountains, the waterfalls, and the beaches.”
