CHOOSE PHILIPPINES community launched by abs-cbn

I have been tweeting about this last Sunday after seeing it launched in ASAP over ABS-CBN channel 2. They didn't really explain much about it but by judging on the mtv sang by Angelene Quinto, I thought it's a travel campaign initiative by the private sector (in this case, the largest tv network in the Phils.) to help the incompetent DOT promote tourism in the country. Turns out that it's more than that. 

Choose Philippines is a community that showcases the best of the Philippines - as they see it. 

Have you discovered the true Philippines?

C-Culture
H-History
OO-Open Outdoors
S-Shopping
E-Events

So come Choose the Philippines! Pili-pinas! It's an archipelago loaded with places to go (PINASyal), food to eat (PINASarap), people to meet (PINASikat) and events to celebrate the whole year (PINASaya)!

CHOOSE PHILIPPINES

I find the website very informative and eye catching. You can find a lot of info here including an update on the weather, the temperature, calendar of events and festivals as well as features on food and people. Soon they will be showcasing promos as well.


There are lots of beautiful photos of the Philippines that can be found in the site. I am very particular with the places of course being a traveler and travel blogger myself. What's good about it is that you can contribute your pictures and travel stories if you want to. The last time I checked, there were already so many travel articles posted by different people.

With a music video in Tagalog though, I think this is mainly to promote domestic appreciation of our tourist spots as well as anything Filipino. While I personally think more should be done to lure foreign tourists and their dollars here, I have no objection in forging a strong local tourism market. After all, we have to speak highly of our own. We cannot expect foreigners to believe that we have the best places in Asia, even the world if we ourselves are not convinced.

It's time we CHOOSE PHILIPPINES !!!
