Lets ride Dept of Tourism's bandwagon, tignan natin kung papatok sa PMT crowd ang kanilang slogan... #ItsMoreFunInThePhilippines

I'll start...

...dahil ang dami nating pagkain! Lahat ng klase ng gulay at dahon kinakain natin, dinuguan, sinigang, salagubang, bayawak, palaka, aso... :cool:

Nakita ko slogan ng DOT:

Background Picture - Banawe Rice Terraces
Slogan: Climbing Up the Stairs. More Fun in the Philippines.

Other ideas:

Background Picture - Rows of bangkas lining up the shore
Slogan: Parking. More Fun in the philippines

Background Picture - Lechon stuck on bamboo with apple in the mouth
Slogan: BBQ. More Fun in the Phillipines

Background Picture - Fiestas
Slogan: Partying. More Fun in the Philippines.

Btw vicces, your thread means "positive" reasons right? Baka babuyin kasi with negative sarcastic slogan , sayang if ever :)

Ang dami ng naglabasan na iba't ibang versions ng "It's More Fun in the Philippines".. Nakita ko yung sa Chicken Charlie na poster. Meron sila sa FB account nila. Here's the link below:

Chicken. It's more fun in the Philippines.

Hehe wala lang. Fave ko kasi kumain dun. Chicken Charlie is love. :)

The Alaminos Longganisa with bamboo sticks for partitions- between 2 British ladies, they left 3 pcs. of  the  1 kilo of my professional fee :D ( in fairness, one is 5'11", the other is 5'8").

It's more fun in the Phils. dahil we re-arrange our lives to make our visitors' stay worthwhile. About those 2^, I was asked to stock up on tea, butter and jam, half and half milk, but they tried everything( can you say bulanglang?) They didn't have to wait for a taxi even once and they didn't waste time trying to find places ( the guy who had to give up his room for 1 night thought he gets first dibs in escorting 2 real blondes around Manila).

Sorry, but that is cheap for me, imagine mang inasal, kfc, bonchon, etc uses that line, tapos sa baba their brand's logo....

"Its fun in the philippines" slogan is meant to promote the philippines, not some particular product.


Backgorund Picture: Bayanihan where people carrying a house
Slogan: Helping. More Fun in the Philippines.

Background Picture: Beautiful sea corals and reefs and fish...
Slogan: Underworld. More Fun in the Philippines.

Backgorund Picture: McArthur Monument in Leyte
Slogan: I Shall Return! More Fun in the Philippines.

           It is definitely more fun in the philippines for me and my taiwanese taiwanese friend and her family went with me to visit Cebu 5 yrs ago and after 2 yrs they went with me to visit boracay.and now she (and her family)wants to come with me this year to visit Coron.her aunt who went with us to cebu and boracay is going to cebu and Bohol this chinese new year( January 23).taka nga ako bakit parati sila sa Pinas punta when they can visit other countries like japan,korea,Malaysia or Indonesia.

           i've been promoting our country to my friends by telling them my next destination when i go back to Pinas and I send them the website  of the place and the hotel we are staying.Naglalakihan mata nila.The downside when they come with me? constipated ako ng 3 to 4 days because of the pressure of keeping them safe,walo ba naman sila,dagdag ko pa family ko so dala ko 17 persons to Boracay,dala pa ako ng whistle in case inde nila ako makita or hahanapin ko sila. :D.and i didn't take a cent from them ako pa ang nanglibre. The reason why they like to come with me to the Philippines? (!)THE BEACHES,wala dito nyan sa taiwan,(2)ME,i am fun to be with :D(3) MY NICE ITINERARY( research to death ako)(4) a relaxing way of taking the trip kasi DIY kami,we don't joins tours,i book then myself,so we are free to decide what we want to do and they kinda love it.

        ang ayaw ko lang sa Pinas: SOBRANG TRAFFIC.

1. yes its more fun in the philippines for may foreigners because theres no or very little language barrier as compared to our asian neighbors, they can talk to even pedicab drivers to take them wherever they want to go (and nagiging tourist guide pa kung minsan). wag na nating pagusapan kung taga yung presyo or yung inherent danger of foreigners as target for kidnap for ransom, were trying to be positive here naman.. :harhar:

2. we smile a lot, lalo kung may camera, kahit nasa gitna ng waist-deep na baha, naka-smile pa rin. meron pa ung photo dati ng inquirer, ang taas ng tubig na humahampas sa breakwater sa manila bay nung bagyo na bumaha sa sofitel (i forgot the typhoon name)... tapos mga bata nakukuha pang magtampisaw as if daring the waves to give them its best shot... :yehey:

3. as wintan mentioned, generally we are fun to be with, not to mention very resilient and always looking at the brighter side of life. hindi uso sa atin ang clinical depression (or hindi lng ngppatingin sa psychiatrists). we have what we call "depressed areas", kung taga-labas ang titingin madedepress ka talaga. pero silang nandun nakatira ang pinakamasayang magkwentuhan/chismisan at maginuman (isama na rin natin ang "masayang" awayan ng mga magkakapitbahay). if that's not fun then i dont know what is. :D :applause:

5 reasons why its more fun in the Philippines bcoz,

1) Our Escort service is a lot younger and cheaper.
2) No language barrier just bad English at most times. Even the Abu Saya speaks English.
3) Foreigners are excepted from rape as long as they can provide a green card and blood money to the victim and its family.
4) Well its more fun for the unemployed since they get to spend more time having fun.
5) As OFW, we get to work out here with no fun and send money home. The Government gets the money and have more fun.

Sorry. I really cant help it.
I really have intense passion hating the government.
I tried my best being positive about it.

For me personally I think somehow effective naman ang ganitong campaign ng DOT. First and foremost, foreigners ang target ng DOT.So, syempre kung anong magagandang lugar or bagay yun ang ipapakita sa mga banyaga. I think marami naman tayong magagandang lugar na pwedeng puntahan both ng mga foreigners and Filipinos as well. Of course hindi maikakaila na maraming problema ang bansa, pero hindi naman yun ang ipinunta ng gustong bumisita sa Bansa. As far as tourism is concern, eh marami naman tayong maipagmamalaki. In the first place pumupunta ka sa isang lugar para magbakasyon at mag-enjoy hindi para problemahin kung anong problema meron sa bansang yun. I still believe that we as a country destination for tourism has a lot to offer to give a memorable and enjoyable vacation for both foreign and local tourists. Yan kasi minsan ang mahirap sa ating mga Pilipino.We tend to focus on the negative things at hindi na natin nakikita na meron parin naman tayong natitirang mga yaman na pwedeng ipagmalaki at gamitin para kahit paano eh makatulong sa pag-unlad natin bilang isang bansa. Kaya minsan nakakalungkot din isipin na tayo mismo ang sumisira sa imahe ng ating sariling bansa sa mata ng ibang lahi.

Very true! It is more fun in the Philippines.

Mas maraming turista, mas maraming perang  gagastusin sa Pilipinas yan. At mas marami silang gastusin sa Pinas eh mas marami magkakaroon ng hanapbuhay.

Kaso, pag nababalita ng mga foreigners ang mga negative news like kidnapping, mass killings, high crime rates etc etc. eh natatakot sila pumunta ng Pilipinas. So instead eh nagpupunta sila sa Thailand, Indonesia or somewherelse.

Me mga kakilala nga ako, madalas daw sila umuwi sa Cebu pero ayaw nila sa Luzon kasi masyado raw magulo at ayaw din nila sa Mindanao kasi meron mga Abu Sayaf kidnappers.

Sana magkaroon tayo ng proper treatment sa mga turista para mas marami pumunta sa Pinas at gastusin nila ang pera nila para madagdagan ang kinikita ng Pilipinas.
