Why "It's more fun in the Philippines?"


Life is...

That day, I got "lost" in Burnham Park. I could not find my family! I was so busy capturing people around the lake. Then I saw this young man walking briskly and enjoying his toy--a bubble toy! I immediately propped up my camera, and he did not mind getting the attention from the people around him and from me.

This is one of the reasons why it is fun to travel around the Philippines!

In the Philippines, you get to have fun by having simple pleasures like this--and is literally a "walk in the park."

Again, too many negative comments are arising from the new tagline of the Department of Tourism's "It's more fun in the Philippines". Filipinos, and travel bloggers, let us all unite to promote the Philippines! We are fun-loving people, and we must realize, bickering is not fun at all!

Aside from my day job, I love photography and storytelling. Going places--be it a cliche destination or the far side of the road--stoke and free my soul. I dig deeper into the people’s psyche, culture and ethnicity, and heritage. I love to observe how they thrive and build social institutions, preserve their culture and traditions.

I agree with you. Let us all be supportive of the Philippines' tourism campaign. Everyone can contribute. One by helping keeping the country clean, not only the areas frequented by tourists, but also our neighborhoods. We should campaign that not only do we have beautiful beaches, sleek shopping malls, and exciting nightlife; but also, a thriving art scene, for the culturally inclined. We are all in this together, including Filipinos like me who have been out of the country for decades.

@Chris, Indeed!

@I agree with you Joan, some people cannot just be satisfied.

@Anonymous, I agree, culture and art are usually relegated to the background.

In my opinion, the beauty of the Filipino culture is observable in the micro aspect. Most of them are very courteous, hardworking, and have high regard for family values.

I have been to Philippines once and I enjoyed my stay there. The people are fun-loving, courteous, and hospitable. They have one of the best beaches in the world too! I'm excited to go back there and spend another vacation.
