Infographic: The rise of tourism in the Philippines

Tourism to the Philippines in the past years has experienced impressive growth as a result of better regional connectivity through low-cost airlines, improvements in touristic infrastructure, broader hotel offerings and new products developed by the tourism authority such as ecotourism and cultural and heritage tours. Growth is due to more arrivals from most source markets, but the Chinese play certainly the most important role and have risen to the currently third-largest nationality group visiting the Philippines behind people from South Korea and the US.

Overall, visitors are attracted to the Philippines by the island nation’s many beaches, mountains, rainforests and diving spots, as well as its urban centers and rich historical and cultural heritage and the general easy-going lifestyle and entertainment options in the country. The most popular beaches are in Boracay and Palawan, whereby the both regularly appears in “best beaches in the world” lists. While Metro Manila is popular for its urban flair, shopping centers and night life, Cebu is visited rather for its cultural attractions and its beach resorts. The Visayas, in turn, are popular for their biodiversity, and Mindanao in the south for its mountain ranges and as a climbing destination. Other interesting destinations are Ifugao with its rice terraces, Bohol with its forests and hills, as well as Vigan with its heritage Hispanic towns.
