Tourism Star Awards-15.jpg
The Philippines Tourism Stars are a batch of individuals recognized by the Department of Tourism (DOT), who have exemplified excellence and dedication in driving the Philippine tourism industry.

“The Philippines tourism is undoubtedly the fastest growing industry in the country, taking on a significant role in our economy. We believe that we owe this tremendous growth to our people. Without them, our destinations would only be a mere landscape. It is our people that give beautiful destinations life and meaning. And the Tourism Star Program honours these individuals who truly make it more fun in the Philippines,” DOT Secretary Ramon R. Jimenez, Jr. said.

The first Tourism Star Philippines award was held last Feb 12, 2015 at the Raffles and Fairmont Hotel, Makati. Watch the video below:
