Are we even surprised at this point?

As of latest count, the Philippines has 7,641 islands spread out in our seas. This means that when there's a contest on the best island, best beaches, or anything ocean-related, we got more than 7,000 entries. So it doesn't come as a surprise that the country bagged the titles for "Asia's Leading Beach Destination" and "Asia's Leading Dive Destination" for the Asia Winners 2020 roster of the 27th World Travel Awards.

In 2019, the Philippines already snatched the title for "World’s Leading Dive Destination" at the 26th World Travel Awards Grand Final Gala Ceremony in Muscat, Oman. After all, our archipelago is located in what's called the "Coral Triangle," which is dubbed by marine experts as the global center of marine biodiversity. We've also been awarded Asia's Leading Beach Destination in 2013, 2016, and 2018.
