“I wish to invite all of you to participate in the 2023 VIP Tour, which will take visitors to Manila, Iloilo and Boracay on 16-24 July,” said Consul General Ferrer. He added that the Philippines’ tropical climate and its tourist destinations await visitors, especially those coming from North America.
In a video message, Ambassador Jose Manuel Romualdez invited participants to join the 2023 VIP Tour and experience what historical and vibrant Manila, heritage-rich Iloilo, and Conde Nast Traveler 2022 Readers’ Choice Top Island in Asia, Boracay, have to offer.
Philippine Tourism Director Soleil Tropicales presented the itinerary involving ecotourism adventures, cultural heritage and culinary tours, as well as additional recreational options, such as dive, golf, among other activities.
