The Philippine Travel Mart has undoubtedly become the biggest annual 3-day gathering of tour operators, hotels, resorts, and travel-related industries from all over the country. There's no shortage of options for travelers of all types.
It doesn't matter if you want a quiet retreat or a thrilling adventure; whether you're planning your honeymoon or just going out with friends, you're bound to find that perfect holiday—at the best rates only available this time of the year!
The event is not without social cause, however. The organizing committee has decided to donate a percentage of the gate proceeds to the victims of the recent calamity, and has also used the event to solicit donations in cash and in kind—attendees are encouraged to drop their share in donation boxes situated at the registration area.
Aside from the endless array of tour products in the country's biggest gathering of tour operators, there's also an Eco Chorale Competition, a Folk Dance Competition, and even a Tourism Quiz Bee—ensuring educational activities for everyone in attendance.
It's more fun in the Philippines!
