Philippines Ranked 2nd in the Top 10 Hot Destinations in 2013 by Condé Nast Traveller -- Definitely not directly attributable to our urban centers but to the beach spots in our countrysides that we ranked 2nd in a top 10 list of a certain American travel magazine - Condé Nast Traveller.
The foreign travel magazine predicts that the Philippines' "heavenly islands" and its white beaches are the things to watch out for in 2013.

  4.  Africa
  5.  Galapagos Islands
  6.  Kashmir
  7.  Mayan Riviera

Specially mentioned by the article writer Laura Fowler is the country's:
  1. Bicol region destination where travel can even swim with the huge but gentle sharks

  3. Palawan for the white sand beaches, heavenly waters and stunning lagoons
If you are out there looking for the next best tropical paradise, Philippines should be in your awesome list to consider this year.


  1. I've heard about this news last night and this morning as well. I'm very delighted we got a great review being a recommended travel destination. Indeed, the Philippines is beautiful so If I have the budget to travel to many places, I will prioritize the Philippines instead of other countries.

  2. Wow! we should be proud of this! Philippines really has the best beaches in the world, that why we should really take care of them. Hope we can move to the top spot in more years to come

  3. Wow this is good to know that we are on number two. Congrats Philippines!

  4. Ross,
    Patronizing local tourism is just the right thing to do :)

    Let's hope for that. Specially the climate change is moving at a fast pace, we really should sustain mother nature for the later generations.

    Thanks for dropping by! Indeed an achievement for the Philippine tourism.
