Around 40 students shared their views on Philippine history, culture, and tourism after watching the most recent campaign of the Department of Tourism, entitled “Eats More Fun in the Philippines”.

The discussion generated the interest of the students in Filipino food, the tradition of fiestas, the influence of faith in Philippine culture, Filipino values, unity in the diverse ethno-linguistic groups in the country, and the fun in exploring its natural wonders.
