The Department of Tourism is on a roll in fast-tracking the country’s revival of the tourism industry: after initiatives such as ASMR visual guides and Spotify playlists, the tourism bureau has also launched 7641, a digital travel magazine that provides readers with travel inspiration and information about the Philippines’ various sights.
The name 7641 is a reference to the number of islands that comprise the Philippine archipelago.
The DOT said that 7641, which is part of the philippines.travel website, “supplies travel information through feature articles that provide detailed itineraries, suggested activities with accompanying reminders for a safe adventure, and interesting stories for each place.”
It also features circuits that the DOT regional offices have developed. These include the Bike Trails of Bicol and Central Visayas, Camiguin and Misamis Oriental’s Green Adventure Loop, Davao’s Dive Tourism, Boracay Food Crawl, SOCCSKSARGEN’s Farm Tours, and the Interregional Cuisine and Culture of Ilocos, Central Luzon, and Cordillera.
“In 7641, we go in-depth into the stories of a destination, a cultural tradition, a dish, a personal affiliation to a place, while also providing the basic information you need as a traveler,” Tourism Secretary Berna Romulo-Puyat said in a statement.
The digital magazine is also said to feature lesser-known destinations such as Marinduque’s white sand beaches, the healing island of Siquijor, the caves and paragliding sites of Nueva Vizcaya, and the pink sand beaches of Zamboanga City.
