Today, the top 10 up and coming tourist destinations in the country dubbed as the Philippine Gems were announced at the Manila Hotel! It is a corporate social responsibility project of Isla Lipana & Co., the Philippine member firm of Price Waterhouse Coopers which aims to increase the awareness and appreciation of different sites in the country to foster both local and international interest and attention that may eventually increase economic activity.
There were 25 short-listed sites that went through online voting from June 26 to September 25, 2013, from which, the top 10 sites emerged as the "10 Philippine Gems". They are:
- Calaguas Island
- Lake Sebu
- Tubbataha Reefs and Natural Park
- Caramoan Islands
- Biri Island Rock Formations
- Mt. Kanlaon
- Danjugan Island
- Panglao Island
- Apo Island
The Philippine Gems hopes to promote and further boost the country's growing economy. Awareness on these sites through the Philippine Gems Project will certainly improve the local tourism in these places. Congratulations to Isla Lipana & Co. for the success of the Philippine Gems Project!
Congratulations to the Top 10 Philippine Gems!
