This event endorses inbound, domestic and outbound tourism, and provides an excellent opportunity to fortify collaboration among various tourism bodies within Israel and other foreign countries.

At an average of 20 nights per trip, their favorite places include Manila, Cebu, Boracay, Palawan, Banaue and Puerto Galera.”
