Global One (G1)— The travel season is upon us and if beaches and sunsets are your favorites, you might want to book a flight to the Philippines. After all, Philippine islands— once again— have been named the best in Asia.
Travel and lifestyle magazine Condé Nast Traveler named Siargao, Boracay and Palawan as the Top 3 Islands in Asia based on the votes of 429,000 readers.
Last year’s list was also dominated by the Philippines with Boracay on the top spot followed by Palawan and Cebu respectively.
This is the first time Siargao made the list.
The surfer’s paradise in Surigao del Norte has become increasingly popular.
With new direct flights from Manila, the “teardrop-shaped” island has welcomed more visitors including professional surfers and celebrities in recent years.
The Philippine Tourism Secretary welcomed the ranking and described it as an “invitation to the tourists in time for the winter vacation.”
