It’s more fun in the Philippines is the new slogan of the Department of Tourism to increase number of foreign visitors in our country. According to their official website itsmorefuninthephilippines.com (still working) wherever you go in the Philippines, it’s the Filipinos will make your holiday unforgettable. Just ask anyone who’s been here. Lonely Planet guidebook calls us “among the most easygoing and ebullient people anywhere”. For me, this slogan means that we Filipinos are very hospitable and jolly to be with and we make fun even from the simplest thing. We are good in accepting visitors whether kababayans (fellowmen) or foreigners. We are jolly person even though we have so many problems but still happy despite of.
Anyway, they said this slogan was copied from the old slogan of Switzerland“It’s more fun inSwitzerland” way back 1951. For me copied or not I guess we are entitled to use this slogan as long as we show how fun staying here in the Philippines. There are negative and positive thoughts about this new slogan but for me I guess we should give this slogan a chance. This is very simple but true and authentic; it is really fun in the Philippines and we can easily show this in many ways because we are happy person. I hope this new campaign will boost foreign visitors. Let them experience how fun staying here and see our beautiful spots.
