The Department of Tourism (DOT) has been busy. Early this month, the agency celebrated the 10th year of the Tourism Act of 2009 with a charming video. And in September, it launched an innovative campaign with Jollibee and the country's most notable chefs.

So, it's hardly a surprise that the department was recently recognized at the World Travel Awards in Vietnam. The DOT bagged the awards for Asia's Leading Tourist Board and Asia's Leading Dive Destination.

"We are greatly honored and thankful for this recent recognition for the Philippines at the World Travel Awards as Asia's Leading Tourist Board and Asia's Leading Dive Destination. A triumph as great as this simply could not be possible without the combined hard work from the government, industry partners, and tourism stakeholders in realizing a more upward tourism industry for the country. This is not the DOT’s alone but for all Filipinos to celebrate," said Secretary Berna Romulo Puyat.

A recent report revealed a 14.08 percent increase in the country's international inbound traffic.

“It is also joyous news that the country’s diving scene is getting the attention it deserves. This award only adds to our motivation to promote a world-class Philippine dive tourism that is anchored on sustainability and inclusivity,” Puyat said.
