The summer months have escaped us and so have any travel plans we laid out, yet as the walls of our confines start to wear on us, daydreaming of the day we can go off and explore safely seems like a great way to momentarily pass the time.
According to Sec. Bernadette Romulo-Puyat of the Department of Tourism (DOT), international travel may not be possible for the rest of the year. However, it’s evident that a lot of effort is being put in to jumpstarting local tourism. Naturally, everyone’s safety is top priority for the DOT, and as they work to ensure that everyone involved in domestic tourism adheres to protocols issued by the World Health Organization (WHO), the website philippines.travel/safeph has been set up to answer any questions you may have in relation to traveling around our country.
So until that time when you feel it’s safe out there for you to step out and enjoy the sites our country has to offer, here’s a roundup of beautiful seaside destinations you might consider visiting. Luckily, visiting the beach is always a great idea in a tropical country like ours, and definitely, it’s more fun in the Philippines.
