MANILA, Philippines - It was an open invitation to all Filipinos to enjoy Israel’s diversity as the Embassy of Israel in Manila joined hands with Asia Tours in an evening dedicated to Israel as the “land of creation and creativity” at the Rizal ballroom of Makati Shangri-La.
The event comes in the heels of very good news – Israel topping the list of countries with growing tourist arrivals last year with 42 percent growth, while Filipino tourists to Israel increased by 27 percent.
While it is more fun in the Philippines, there is only one holy land. Israel is the Promised Land and the land of many promises.
