Lonely Planet Magazine Philippines

few months ago i was invited to the launch of Lonely Planet Magazine Philippines and unveiled the first issue of our local version of the international Lonely Planet magazine. this is aside from the popular travel guide books distributed globally.
"through traveling or simply by reading Lonely Planet Philippines, nowhere feels out of reach anymore" says editor Gutsy Tuason. on this issue, immediately it features some of the country's popular yet still has that exotic character spots. like the waves of Pagudpud, the inspiring B'laan tribe in Sarangani and the awesome Cordilleras. definitely not limited to featuring the Philippines but spots from other countries as well.
one thing that makes this different from the usual travel magazine is its pull-out and fold travel guide and direct to the point travel tips. what's great is i had my copy signed by the editor. now available on selected bookshops at P250. published by Bella Luce Publications under the license from BBC magazines.

The recent incident involving HK tourists is creating doubts and fear among some of my friends here of the Philippines as a tourist destination. But given time, the bad publicity will wear off.

I'm excited to see LP finally soaked its feet in the Philippine waters - of magazine publishing. Hope to grab a copy of this.
