Philippine Travel Exchange ’19 Post-Tour in Western Visayas

Western Visayas, Philippines – International delegates of the Philippine Travel Exchange (PHITEX) 2019 from Denmark, Poland, Malaysia, Taiwan, Thailand and the Philippines recently explored Capiz, Iloilo, and Negros Occidental Provinces as part of their Post-Tour activities in Western Visayas, Region 6.

The Philippine Travel Exchange is the biggest travel trade event in the country first held in 1996. Patterned after the ASEAN Tourism Forum, this event hosts qualified international buyer delegates all over the world to participate in table-top business appointments with accredited Philippine tourism suppliers. Invited foreign participants are also given a chance to experience what the country can offer as a tourism destination during pre and post tours featuring key Philippine attractions and destinations.

This year, the Tourism Promotions Board, the tourism marketing arm of the Department of Tourism, chose Capiz, Iloilo, and Negros Occidental in Western Visayas as part of the post-tour destinations. This year’s post-tour program features Capiz Province as a new entrant.


In pursuit of sustainable and responsible tourism in Western Visayas, Capiz has a lot of nature and cultural-historical destinations to offer and this is made possible with the concerted and unified efforts of tourism shareholders in the private sector, government, and empowered local communities.

With the inclusion of Capiz in this year’s PHITEX Post-Tour Program, Las Islas Travel and Tours is thankful for the opportunity to have our international delegates experience the rich culture and history, the beautiful and pristine nature destinations, savor the culinary delights, and feel the authentic warmth and hospitality of the local communities of Western Visayas!
