DOT tourism slogan Pilipinas kay ganda PROMOTES PHILIPPINE PROSTITUTION

Re-posting this from Ellen Tordesillas' blog:

Less than 24 hours after “Pilipinas kay Ganda” was previewed (it was not yet the launching, Tourism Secretary Alberto Lim stressed) the accompanying site – was taken off because they found out that there’s an existing porn website also using the key words “beautifulpilipinas.”

Why they didn’t find this out before the preview defies common sense.

Tourism Undersecretary Vicente Romano said they have created a new website – – to promote the P100 million new Philippine tourism brand that they have created.

Anton Diaz of Awesome Planet website, who was at last Monday’s preview said, “It does not help that Beautiful Pilipinas is a double edge branding that promotes the natural beauty of the Philippines but also insinuates we have Beautiful Filipinas (which is a porn site if you look online).”

This is bad for the tourism industry in this country. I'm happy that they use internet to promote tourism.
