International Travel Magazine once again recognized Palawan as best island in the world. The Palawan previously won the title in 2013, 2016 and 2017.
Every year Travel + Leisure surveys its readers for its “World’s Best Awards” to get their take on the top cities, islands, spas, airlines and more, as per the magazine’s report.
The travel readers rated these islands based on the quality of their beaches, activities, sights, natural attractions, food, the friendliness of the locals and the overall value of the island.ADVERTISEMENT.
“Palawan reclaimed its rightful place in the World’s Best Awards. The citation as the Best Island in the World is all the more important because this is voted upon by the readers of the prominent Travel + Leisure (T+L) magazine,” said Tourism Secretary Bernadette Romulo-Puyat of the accolade.
“It’s wonderful to see that our rehabilitation and sustainable development efforts last year, especially in El Nido and Coron, were well-received by tourists everywhere,” added Puyat.
Boracay also made it to Travel+Leisure’s annual list of the world’s top island destinations, ranking at 14th.
