I am grateful to be chosen as one of the bloggers to help promote Tourism in the Philippines and being part of the Tourism Promotion Board bloggers. We had a meeting with the COO Cesar Montano, an actor, and a Film Director. It’s nice to know that the team wanted to get our inputs in promoting our country on a more “Millenial” approach. We kind of wanted to change the typical boring ads, promotions on TV,, in social media and even print. I’m fascinated and impressed with Mr. Cesar Montano not because he’s an actor and popular in the showbiz industry but the way he thinks and showing his creative side as he shares his plans promoting tourism with a different twist. I enjoyed watching the snippets of videos he showed us like the “Sultan Qudarat”. The short commercials of Cebu, Bacolod, Bohol, and others soon to be finished.
There are so many plans already laid out for the Tourism Promotions Board.
Another awesome thing is that the TPB have come up with this new app called the SelPhilippines app where you get to access promos and discounts for hotels, food and even restaurants.whenever you are traveling. This will soon be launched anytime this year.
The Tourism Promotions Board (TPB) exists to market and promote the Philippines domestically and internationally as a world-class tourism and MICE destination, in strategic partnership with private and public stakeholders to deliver a unique high-value experience for visitors, significantly contributing to increased arrivals, receipts, and investments to the country.
The TPB is an attached agency of the Department of Tourism.

I think it’s about time we change how we view our country and appreciate it more. When you see how beautiful the commercials are, you’d really be proud that you’re a Filipino. It is indeed more fun in the Philippines.
