The Department of Tourism (DOT) led by Secretary Christina Garcia-Frasco delivered the roll out of Philippine Experience Program and started exploring Ilocos Sur.

The Philippine Experience Program is a heritage, culture and arts caravan that seeks to give opportunities for tourists to visit not only key tourist destinations but also lesser-known destinations to experience their festivals, food and local products and supports the preservation of the country’s artistic resources and cultural heritage.

The Tourism Secretary was joined by DOT RO1 Director Jeff Ortega and more than 80 participants including other DOT officials, diplomats, travel operators, content creators and media.

“PEP epitomizes a milestone in our collection efforts to elevate the tourism landscape of our nation. PEP is beyond an experience only; it is a symbol of one-ness as we come together to showcase the best of what the Philippines has to offer.” A part of Governor Jerry Singson’s message during the program.
