It’s Definitely More Fun in the Philippines!

Categories: Anything Goes;

We are strong supporters of the new campaign of The Department of Tourism.  It’s young and it’s fun.  It’s definitely now.  Even the initial approach at tapping social media deserves a lot of applause.  And of course, much credit is also due to BBDO Guerrero | Proximity Philippines for the concept as well as all the Pinoys who rallied behind this slogan and brought it to life with participation.

Now, all the social network feeds have been flooded by user-generated images conveying the whats and whys of “It’s More Fun in the Philippines.”

And being lovers of travel, us at En Route also took our turn in this meme-making frenzy.
