Agoda surveyed 14,000 family travelers across 12 markets in its Family Travel Trends Survey, which revealed that visiting landmarks, beaches and parks was the most popular activity.
Agoda’s Regional Vice President for South East Asia and Oceania, Enric Casals, noted that families are taking advantage of school holidays to spend quality time traveling.
“Among Filipino tourists, we find that they are very interested in spending time on the beach or in cities with many historical and cultural sites and great food,” Casals said.
