We spent a couple of days at one of the prime destinations during summer in the Philippines. Traveling up north all the way to Baguio, it took us five hours of nonstop bus ride from Cubao to Baguio City proper. The travel back is even longer at six hours, owing to traffic along Rosales in Pangasinan and parts of Tarlac.

These are some of the shots we took while enjoying our vacation. Another reason why it’s more fun in the Philippines!

The latest slogan aimed at enticing foreigners to visit the many islands of the Philippines was unveiled by the Department of Tourism on Friday, January 6th.

It’s a simple straight-forward line, but it’s already drawn positive feedbacks from the blogosphere and news outlets alike. This is in contrast to the widely derided “Pilipinas Kay Ganda!” slogan put out in November 2010.

In and of itself it serves a purpose. But the line can serve a lot more if you precede it with whatever it is you want to promote.

Take the Ifugao Rice Terraces’ “Getting upstairs. More fun in the Philippines!” for example.

Wherever you go in the Philippines, it’s the Filipinos that will make your holiday unforgettable. Just ask anyone who’s been here. In fact, Lonely Planet guidebook calls us ‘among the most easygoing and ebullient people anywhere.’
