23rd Philippine Travel Mart Set on August 10-12 at SMX Convention Center

Have you ever wanted to explore the beautiful provinces and islands of the Philippines? This is the best time to make those dreams into a reality.

Organized by the Philippine Tour Operators Association (PHILTOA) in partnership with the Department of Tourism (DOT), the 23rd Philippine Travel Mart (PTM) is set on August 10-12, 2012 (Friday-Sunday) at the SMX Convention Center, Mall of Asia Complex, Pasay City.

The PTM is the premiere and biggest travel and tourism trade show in the country. With the theme Sale ng Bayan, this year's travel fair features heritage and eco-adventure tours from all over the Philippines. 

During the fair, there will be almost 250 exhibitors presenting their tour products through colorful pavilions and booths. The Sale ng Bayan will also launch “Philippine Island Fun Caravan Getaways" - joint group tours that cover various locations from all over the Philippines. These 4-day to 8-day tours pool local, balikbayan, and foreign tourists together to avail of special packages that would have otherwise cost a lot of money if done individually. Featured tours include the Batanes-Cagayan Northern-scape, Cordilleras Cultural Weekend Warrior Caravan, Central Visayas Backdoor tour, and the Tuna-T'Boli trail, among others.

Apart from the feature of classic Philippine destinations, you shouldn't miss the individual tour packages that will be offered anywhere from 70 to 80% discounted prices. Some of those are “Kulinarya” (Binondo food trip for as low as Php648), “Health and Wellness” (Tagaytay Wellness trip for as low as Php2,900), “Festivals” (Panagbenga trip for as low as Php5,500), and many more.

The three day Philippine Travel Mart won't be complete without providing informative seminars for students and holding competitions like the Eco Chorale Competition, the Folk Dance Competition, and also the Tourism Quiz Bee.

Based on previous years, entrance fee will be collected at the entrance, but is expected to only be at a minimal (Php50). Expect thousands of folks to flock into SMX, so be there early or be square! Enjoy!
