Tourism Secretary Bernadette Romulo-Puyat assured that the Department of Tourism would continue to strengthen its product and market development as the country prepares for the eventual restart of tourism.
Puyat said, “The Philippines retains its pro-active stance in exploring new innovative tourism products, including adventure tourism that will contribute to fast track the recovery of the sector within the Asia-Pacific region. Being primarily an outdoor activity, and with obvious resemblance to the baseline requirement for a healthy and safe travel, it presents an opportunity for a strong reversal and onward growth.”
She added, “While adventure tourism has been recognized as a global tourism trend and tourists shift their interest to new destinations and experiences, the Philippines’ unique 7,641 islands have a lot to offer.”
In the Philippines, two of its prime examples are Donsol, Sorsogon, and the Masungi Georeserve in Rizal.
