Motourismo - Motorcycle Tourism Caravan

A safe, fun, and practical motorcycle experience is on its way to bring you to the many wonders of the Philippines.

MANILA, Philippines – Domestic travelers and motorcycle sports enthusiasts can now revisit and revitalize their travel experience around Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao as the Department of Tourism (DOT) and the Tourism Promotions Board (TPB) Philippines officially launched today, 27 November 2020, “MOTOURISMO,” a Motorcycle Tourism Caravan geared towards rediscovering the country’s sights on two wheels.

“By initiating this safe yet very thrilling and worthwhile campaign to promote motorcycle tourism through TPB, we want to restore the confidence of the public to travel domestically and help the tourism industry to bounce back from the negative impact of the COVID-19 pandemic crisis,” explains Tourism Secretary Bernadette Romulo – Puyat.

Secretary Romulo-Puyat adds that they will be tapping motor riders as domestic tourism ambassadors because they are in a position to help promote the Philippines as a country of fun and diverse experience, as well as highlight motorcycles as a secure and viable transportation mode to explore tourist attractions with minimum health and safety protocols in place.

This effort will also pave opportunities for tour operators to create new tour programs to be offered to domestic and international tourists, help those who lost their jobs, jumpstart small businesses, and generally serve as a platform to disseminate information on safety health protocols when people go outside.

Motourismo is a pragmatic and sustainable way of promoting the country’s untapped tourism destinations. It will also showcase the interesting culture and heritage sites, shops, restaurants, and other tourism products all over the country that Filipinos can discover.

Thoroughly planned during the past few months, Motourismo has come to fruition with TPB’s collaboration with DOT, Department of Transportation (DOTr), RidePH, and numerous motorcycle rider clubs and associations in the Philippines.

DOT Secretary Romulo-Puyat and TPB COO Allones were joined by former Senator Joseph Victor G. Ejercito and several bloggers, influencers, and motorcycle enthusiasts during the virtual launching.

With this government-led initiative, a renewed sense of hope will be instilled in the Filipinos’ hearts and minds as they see that despite the challenges, the beauty of the Philippine tourist destinations remains worth exploring.

TPB is an attached agency of the Department of Tourism (DOT) mandated to market and promote the Philippines domestically and internationally as a preferred tourism and Meetings, Incentives, Conferences and Exhibitions (M.I.C.E.) destination that prides itself on diverse and fun travel experiences.
