According to Department of Tourism, there is 9.76% increase compared to the last year’s figures of foreign tourists this year. That is over 3.4 million visits in the Philippines from January to May 2019. May has the highest growth rate.

The numbers are very encouraging. From 3,178,984 tourists recorded from January to May in 2018, we are already close to breaching the 3.5 million mark this year. This only shows that the preservation of our environment can go hand in hand with economic gains,” said DOT Secretary Bernadette Romulo-Puyat in the report published on the agency’s social media on July 8.
