Philippines – 25 January, 2024 – Tripadvisor, the biggest travel site in the world for deals and reviews, recently named Palawan as one of the Top Trending Destinations in the World for 2024. This was posted recently on the Philippines’ Department of Tourism (DOT) Facebook Page. The citation by Trip Advisor’s Best of the Best, is another great honor for the Philippines which has been steadily pushing its tourism efforts since after the pandemic. 

In 2023, Palawan was named one of the World’s Most Desirable Countries for Adventure, one of Travel + Leisure’s Top Islands, and one of Condé Nast Traveler’s Most Beautiful Places in the World and Top Readers’ Choice. This latest award adds to the island’s long history of success as a popular travel destination. 

The Philippines’ DOT Secretary Christina Garcia Frasco shared, “As Palawan continues to turn heads and warm hearts across the globe, this latest accolade from Tripadvisor is but a testament to the island’s timeless allure. Ensuring the sustainability of Palawan’s tourism development and promoting enhanced tourism experience for travelers is of utmost importance which is why the national government is engaging in collaboration and partnership with the local government units of Palawan.”

Palawan is known for having some of the most beautiful and charming natural scenery in the country. It has some of the most pristine and clear turquoise seas, lush tropical landscapes, and perfect white-sand beaches. The island has been praised for a long time for its eco-friendly and responsible tourism, which protects the area’s natural history and wildlife.   

TripAdvisor stated on its site: “Palawan is a slice of heaven, a sliver of an island that teems with exotic wildlife, quaint fishing villages, and UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Wave hello to endangered animals at the Calauit Game Preserve and Wildlife Sanctuary or explore the Japanese shipwrecks of Coron Island, regarded as one of the best dive sites in the world. A guided boat tour of the Puerto Princesa Underground River will take your breath away.” 

Tripadvisor’s mention of the island makes it even more of a must-see for travelers from around the world looking for an immersive and unforgettable experience. Tripadvisor’s praise shows that the island can capture the hearts of travelers looking for one-of-a-kind and amazing adventures.
