Bangon Tours to Help Recover the Philippines

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Let's support our recovery through the Tourism Industry.

The Philippines Department of Tourism and the Tourism Promotions Board (TPB) have partnered to create the Bangon Tours Project, an initiative aimed at boosting domestic tourism.

The new tourism project will assist with the government’s recovery and rebuilding efforts for the victims and survivors of the recent Typhoon Haiyan disaster.

The Philippines’ private sector has been encouraged to voluntarily share a percentage of their net income derived from the Bangon Tours, to help fund local foundations and charitable institutions.

Sixteen areas are to be featured for Bangon Tours; Ilocos, Tuguegarao, Baguio, Batangas-Puerto Galera, Manila-Tagaytay, Puerto Princesa, Baler, Bicol, Cebu, Davao, Bohol, Iloilo, Boracay, Siargao, CDO-Camiguin, and Batanes.

However, Bangon Tour offerings will not be limited to these destinations.

The project aims to showcase and promote the available tourism products (package tours, accommodation, local tours, etc.) of the destinations not affected by the recent natural disaster.

Filipinos have been urged to travel during the holiday season (December-February) in order to help sustain domestic tourism and reinforce the role the industry plays in rebuilding lives and businesses.
