“What the PHILTOA is trying to achieve by way of this fair is to entice Filipinos to discover the hidden gems such as the Zamboanga Peninsula, Quirino, and Soccsksargen (South Cotabato, Cotabato, Sultan Kudarat, Sarangani, and General Santos). These are just some of the places that are under-the-radar but deserve to be explored, appreciated, and enjoyed.”

The one stop set-up makes it easy for travel fair patrons to peruse vacation packages from Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao. Philippine Travel Mart 2023 visitors will have the advantage of availing discounts and special deals available only for on-the-spot booking.

“It’s still the domestic market that is driving tourism in the country. We see this because  of the  strong demand for packaged tours in popular destinations like Baguio, Boracay, Cebu, Palawan.”
