Philippines Department of Tourism celebrates the inclusion of the three popular island tourist destinations of Palawan, Cebu, and Boracay in Travel + Leisure’s World’s Best Awards 2019.
According to Travel + Leisure Magazine, Palawan is ranked second on the 15 Best Islands in the World. The island is home to the enchanting Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park, Coron and El Nido. Master-planned as an integrated tourism destination project, Palawan is envisioned as a sustainable investor’s haven that will be a catalyst for inclusive economic growth through public and private partnership.
Cebu and Boracay were voted 7th and 9th, respectively, in the Top 10 Islands in Asia category by the readers of the international travel magazine. The islands were rated according to their activities and sights, natural attractions and beaches, food, friendliness, and overall value. Palawan also came in second on this list. These islands are longtime favourites, thanks to the top-notch reef and wreck diving, white-sand beaches, hiking trails with waterfalls and welcoming locals.
