MANILA, Philippines — The Philippines has earned another accolade after being named the “Destination of the Year” award at the 9th TripZilla Excellence Awards 2023.

This was announced by the marketing arm of the Department of Tourism, Tourism Promotions Board, which also hailed the recognition as a "significant milestone" last November 10.

“This prestigious accolade showcases the country as a top travel destination, celebrating the nation's diverse attractions, rich heritage, and warm hospitality,” the board said.

Last year, Singapore's Sentosa clinched the "Destiation of the Year award."

This year, it is actually a double win for the Philippines with TPB also winning the coveted Sustainability Leader of the Year (Asia) award for the second consecutive year.

"We are proud to receive the Sustainability Leader of the Year (Asia) award for the second time in a row and be named the Destination of the Year by TripZilla. These accolades are a testament to our passion for showcasing the beauty of the Philippines and our ongoing efforts in championing sustainability and providing genuine local experiences,” said TPB Chief Operating Officer Maria Margarita Montemayor Nograles.

“Together, we are crafting a sustainable legacy so that future generations of travelers may also enjoy it in the years to come,” she added.

The annual TripZilla Excellence Awards, hosted by one of Southeast Asia’s leading digital travel media company, TripZilla, recognizes travel organizations “that redefine industry standards and deliver exceptional experiences and driving positive change within the tourism industry.”

The winners from this recognition event are selected following extensive online voting conducted by TripZilla that reaches more than 20 travelers monthly.
