Wow Philippines
Tourism is an important economy in the Philippines. The flagship campaign of Department of Tourism “WOW Philippines” for the first time after so many years has finally reaped its reward combined with a much stable economy attaining it’s last year’s target tourist arrivals. For the next three years before Arroyo’s administration ends the DOT (Department of Tourism) targets five million arrivals.

Current Tourism Trends
South Korea tops the Philippine tourist arrivals for this year, a little bit higher than the US visitor arrivals that topped the list previously. This current trend is largely attributed to the “English as a Second Language Centers” across the nation with the National Capital Region and Cebu being identified as the most popular destinations. However, the local travel retailer has been losing revenue to Korean travel agencies operating in the market. The growth of hotels and spa in the country is also evident due to growing number of Korean investments. Low Cost Carrier also showed positive growth. The increasing interest of both inbound and outbound tourism is largely attributed to route expansions evident among all carriers.

Destination for Health and Wellness
The Philippines currently ranks as the fifth in Asia for Health and Wellness destination. To further boost on this, the government, travel agencies, tour operators and even hospitals have joined forced in attracting more “health and wellness” tourist in the country.
