“FAM (familiarity) trips provide the best way to experience visiting a new place, immersing oneself in the culture, trying the food, seeing the sights and meeting locals,” explained Mango Tours Vice President of Business Development and Operations, Juan Francisco III. He strongly feels that the ASP Tour will not only help Mango Tours push the Philippines as a destination but heighten the overall awareness of the Philippine Islands adding that “Many of our influencers followers are non-Filipino and most of these people were seeing the uniqueness and charm of the Philippines for the first time.”
Through the joined efforts and support of the Philippine Department of Tourism and local tour operators - Hadefe Travel and Tours, Pamilacan Tours, SUP Tours Philippines, and Cebu Trip Tours, the group was able to explore various renowned destinations in Palawan, Cebu, and Bohol. In addition, Kabila Filipino Bistro, Burgers and Brewskies, and Crisp on 28th hosted meals for the group during their stay in Manila, and Zubuchon in Cebu. The Spa Wellness treated them to a traditional massage while Astoria Hotels and Resorts (Palawan, Boracay, and Currents by Astoria), Eskaya Beach Resort & Spa, Crimson Resort & Spa Mactan, and The Manila Hotel served as official accommodations for the duration of the tour.
