Philippines to promote the country as sports tourism hub

Published on : Thursday, October 6, 2016

philippinesThe Philippines has a huge potential to become one of the world’s great adventure travel destinations, Tourism Secretary Wanda Teo said. The country’s Department of Tourism is striving to promote the country as a sports tourism hub.

DOT participated in the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) Conference on Tourism and Sports held in Da Nang, Vietnam last September 23, 2016.

Teo disclosed plans to attract more local and international sports events that have potential to be major tourism draw cards. “With our country’s natural attractions and the Filipinos’ love for sports, we certainly have the competitive edge to make it big in this fast growing niche market of sports tourism,” Teo added.

The DOT also seeks to host the next UNWTO conference on tourism and sports.

Undersecretary Katherine de Castro, who represented the DOT at the UNWTO Conference on Tourism and Sports said that marine sports tourism along with diving are among the Philippines’ key tourism products and this alone can spur tourism growth in the country.
