MISS Universe 2017 Demi-Leigh Peters and selected candidates of the Miss Universe pageant recently visited the Philippines.
The beauty queens were invited by the Department of Tourism as part of its “Bring Home a Friend to the Philippines” campaign.
They were in the country to explore the beauty, the sights and sounds, the food and of course, the famous hospitality of the Filipino people.
Last Wednesday, they visited some popular destinations in Manila. They first went to the famous Rizal Park and then toured the historical site of Intramuros.
Today, they will visit the Batanes, Bohol and Camiguin.
As a Filipino, it is an honor for me that among many beautiful countries in the world to visit, they granted the invitation of the DOT to experience the best scenery of the Philippines. It is also overwhelming and touching that they are very fond of the hospitality of the Filipinos.
The visit of the beauty queens in the country can become a beautiful precedent to the influx of tourists in the country; and this holiday season, I hope that the Philippines will be flooded with more tourists who are excited to explore the country.
