It’s More Fun in the Philippines

It’s more fun in the Philippines, according to the Philippines Department of Tourism at ATF-Travex in Lao. Well, it must be because 6,023 Irish visitors went there last year – a massive growth of 38.83% over the previous year.

The Philippines surpassed the four million mark for international visitors for the the first time in 2012, with a total of 4.272 million. The target for 2013 is 5 million international visitor arrivals.

The Philippines has been ranked second by Conde Nast Traveller, which cited the country for having “7,000 of the most heavenly islands in the world”. Brazil topped the list, which included the Galapagos Islands, Kashmir, Mayan Riviera of Mexico, New Zealand, Panama, and Oman.
