There are 7,641 islands in the Philippines. 7,641 unique islands to experience. 7,641 different islands to explore. And Explora.ph is the ultimate online medium that brings together all the beauty that the Philippines has to offer.
A brainchild of JR Felipe and Perry Sumakote, the Explora.ph website and newly launched app bring over 1,500 curated attractions straight to your devices. “Boracay, Palawan, Surigao might be top of mind for most travelers but the Philippines is more than its greatest hits,” says Sumakote.
Bringing about that Bayanihan spirit, the dynamic Explora team partners with local government units to unearth all that this fair country has to offer. “Our big goal is to showcase all of the Philippines, every single city, province, and island represented and ready for you to get to know through Explora. It is all about bringing the Philippines closer to both foreigners and locals alike,” Felipe explains concisely.
Highlighting, of course, not just the places, but the culture, industry and most of all the people, Explora’s aim is to be the key that unlocks the full potential of tourism in the country. With a user-friendly interface, up to date yet streamlined information of each travel destination, Explora.ph is definitely a game-changing, one-stop shop platform for all your Philippine travel needs. “This is just the tip of the iceberg for us. We have many plans and projects to further take Philippine tourism to the digital age. We invite you to be part of our growing community,” Felipe and Sumakote conclude.
