The Philippines have been open for business since February, and now the Philippine Department of Tourism and Avanti Destinations have gotten together to launch a 50-page educational e-brochure for travel advisors. You can download The Philippines: Pearl of the Orient Sea on Avanti’s advisor portal.

To help you sell customized independent travel vacations to paradise to your best clients, the entities will host a webinar on Tuesday, Sept. 27, 2022, at 1 p.m. EST. To register, click here.

“If your clients are looking for a tropical paradise with friendly local people, it’s hard to top the Philippines,” said Paul Barry, CEO of Avanti Destinations. “There are so many eco adventures to be had: snorkeling, scuba diving, world-class surfing, volcano-trekking, parasailing, wildlife-spotting, swimming with the world’s largest fish—the list goes on and on. We have several unique private tours and experiences, like a visit to the indigenous Aetas people or a foodie tour of Manila’s Chinatown, that can be added to any custom itinerary. We are pleased to be partnering with the Department of Tourism on this campaign to show travel advisors the many possibilities.”

The new e-brochure was made for you to share with your clients. Along with destination information, it also includes videos, historical background and helpful information on getting to and around the Philippines. The destinations in the e-brochure include: Manila, Cebu, Palawan, Coron, Puerto Princesa, Siargao, Boracay and Bohol. There are also descriptions of two suggested customizable Avanti vacations, six private sightseeing tours and experiences, and 15 four- and five-star hotels and resorts in all the highlighted destinations. Five of the featured hotels and resorts have just been added to Avanti’s Philippines’ lineup.

The two featured vacations are Fantastic Phillipines (10 days, 9 nights in Manila, Cebu and El Nido) and Secrets of Siargao (5 days, 4 nights on Siargao Island, which is famous for surfers). Both can be customized to add or subtract the number of days, destinations, transfers and activities.
