ABS-CBN, through its Lingkod Kapamilya Foundation’s Ecotourism Projects, also offers packages that support the livelihood of locals and protect and maintain the natural ecosystems of the tourist sites.

The most-loved tourist spots that leave a lasting impression on travelers are recognized in the Best Destination category, with sub-categories Heritage Sites, Water Forms, Islands and Beaches, Mountains and Volcanoes, and Recreational Spots.

Choose Philippines also acknowledges the local gastronomic treats that best represent the uniquely Filipino taste in Best Dish’s Poultry, Beef, Pork, Vegetable, Seafood, Fusion, Native Exotic Delicacy, and Panghimagas sub-categories.

Accommodations that excel in service, hospitality, comfort, accessibility and aesthetics and double as a home away from home are also honored in the Best Accommodation’s Family, Solo Traveler, Couple, and Barkada sub-categories.

All the nominations that will be received by the site will then be shortlisted by the country’s top travel bloggers, lifestyle experts, and industry leaders.

The final 5 nominees for each category will be announced on October 10, when the voting for the Choose Philippines Awards will also begin.
