How can you really tell others that various places are really worth visiting and how can they assure that going into that specific place is worthy? Feedback and recommendation takes it all! Tourist usually do two things before concluding where and which. First, they are looking for positive feedback or reviews on social media or on trustable websites. Second, is the transportation. Not all people love to jump into different vehicles and some just want hassle-free travel.

Condé Nast is a magazine of luxury and lifestyle travelers. This magazine is popular and has been one of the most reliable tourist magazines at all time. Their first publication was issued in 1987. Their office today is located in the One World Trade Center in New York. Condé Nast’s readers’ choice award has a great impact on tourism.

Every year, Condé Nast makes a survey of beaches, cities, islands, hotels, resorts, spa resorts, trains and countries all over the world. Surely, the top list is extremely beautiful and must be visited by other tourists. The voting for 2020 started in April and the final and top list on different categories was published on December 31, 2020.

Boracay made it into second place. Yes, second best island beaches in the world! That’s how attractive, scenic, serene and luxurious Boracay is! Boracay is a 7km long beach and 1km wide island, and belongs to the Municipality of Malay. The natural white-sand beaches, clear waters and modernized establishments with spa and resorts have taken a big part helping tourists feel good and better than other places.

Meanwhile, El Nido in Palawan was on the 9th. Palawan has been different from other places, since it offers natural sites like the karst limestone cliffs, mountain peaks and white sand beaches.

Condé Nast’s Caitlin Morton captioned Boracay as:
“Boracay is a screensaver brought to life, with dazzling white sand, so-clear-you-can-see-your-toes water, and a lush jungle backdrop, available to anyone willing to make the journey. The island used to fly under the radar with one of the most beautiful beaches in the world—but the secret's out. Now the three-mile White Beach, with its grottos and beachside dining (and nightlife), is its busiest swath of sand,” and

“Shockingly, Palawan remains steadily under the radar, even though it continues to rank highly in our Readers' Choice Awards. El Nido alone is home to around 50 white sand beaches—it’s impossible to choose just one—all of which are set around dramatic limestone formations and have the finest and whitest sand you’ll ever see. The water is so blindingly blue it makes the Caribbean Sea look murky in comparison. And the sunsets? Well, they’ll ruin you for life. Consider yourself warned.” for El Nido.

The Department of Tourism celebrates the new journey for the tourism of the Philippines! The DOT Secretary Bernadette Romulo-Puyat in the press release said “We would like to thank the travelers who voted for our destinations. We draw inspiration from this warm reception and solid vote of confidence from our satisfied patrons. As our destinations gradually reopen with health and safety measures in place, we will continue our conservation and protection efforts of these areas,”.

On the other hand, Boracay and El Nido now accepts domestic tourists coming from General Community Quarantine (GCQ) and Modified General Community Quarantine (MGCQ) areas and should follow the health and safety protocols.

Even though the visitors of the Philippines have continued to rise since 2016, the DOT are still looking forward to the upcoming years.
