27th PTAA Travel Expo Offers an Exciting Travel and Tour Discount

The Philippine Travel Agencies Association (PTAA) is hosting the three-day TravelTour Expo 2020 at SMX Convention Center from February 7 to 9. It is the 27th installment of the highly anticipated event.

In line with this, PTAA is releasing its list of most traveled celebrities. The group formed a three-person committee to come up with the list based on the stars' social media posts. 

PTAA president Ritchie Tuano explained, "These days, social media has become one of the best tools for the travel and tourism industry. Pictures and videos are the best ways to entice people to visit a place. Celebrities, whether they realize it or not, do a lot to boost the visits to different locations within and outside the country. Their fans aspire to go where they go. Moreover, the public also gets to find out more about the places they visit. They provide both the glamour factor and the reassurance that the place is safe to visit."

With that, the PTAA has identified the following as their top 10 most traveled Filipino celebrities:  

1. Tim Yap 
2. Heart Evangelista
3. Lovi Poe
4. Catriona Gray 
5. Pia Wurtzbach
6. Vicky Belo
7. Bea Alonzo
8. Nadine Lustre 
9. Liza Soberano
10. Maine Mendoza

"Anyone can take a picture of their travels and just post it online, but these stars really draw in their followers by sharing their candid moment during their journeys," explained Tuaño. "You know that they don't just go to a place to have their picture taken. They enjoy each and every place wholeheartedly. They also go out of their way to interact with the locals."

Tuano went on to say, "If you haven't been bitten by the travel bug yet, maybe you can check out the booths at the TravelTour Expo 2020 to get inspired."
