Top Destinations in Philippines
The Philippines has a rich diversity of attractions, yet its performance as an international tourist destination remains disappointing and appears to be linked to the country’s history of political instability. Ongoing uncertainty and possible turbulence ahead associated with a change of government raise questions about future prospects. An examination of tourism, focusing on obstacles to overcome within the context of wider conditions, is thus timely and the subject of this paper.
After an opening section which provides background information about the country and tourism there, critical determinants of the effective functioning and growth of countries as tourist destinations are identified. Such considerations are then discussed within the context of the Philippines with particular emphasis on questions of politics and their consequences.
The analysis highlights distinctive qualities of the Philippines, but also affords more general insights into facilitators of and impediments to destination development and especially those of a political character. A case study methodology was selected as suitable for the purpose and findings are based upon evaluation of material in the public domain.
