El Nido named one of the world's Top Destinations on the Rise
We're so proud!
(SPOT.ph) Palawan has been lauded time and again as one of the best islands in the world (if not the best) by international travel websites and magazines, award-giving bodies, and travel enthusiasts for its beauty and perfection. It is most especially known for the El Nido archipelago, which is composed of more than 45 islands and islets that boast white sand beaches, towering limestones, rich marine life, and unique geological formations.
With these recognitions under its belt, it's only fitting that it made the cut for the Top Destinations on the Rise category of Trip Advisor's 2016 Traveler's Choice. It ranks sixth, beaten only by the likes of San Jose del Cabo, Mexico; Whistler, British Columbia; Jericoacoara, Brazil; Kihei, Hawaii; and Baku, Azerbaijan. It's also the only Southeast Asian destination that made it on the top 10 of this world's best list.
"We are very happy with the recognition of El Nido as a destination on the rise, especially as this is based on the unbiased reviews and opinions submitted by Trip Advisor users all over the world," Tourism Sec. Wanda Corazon Teo said in a statement sent to Manila Bulletin on December 8.
BRB, we're off to the beach!
