As we welcome you to the annual meeting of the ISDS, we invite everyone to enjoy your stay and visit our beautiful country, explore its lovely islands and meet our friendly people.

We prepared a pre-congress tour specifically for this meeting. To start with, indulge in modern Filipino cuisine and bear witness to a spectacular sunset view of Manila Bay, as you relax in the comfort of your luxury suite.

Dive into the country’s history as you take a trip around the walled city of Intramuros. Discover the Filipino heritage that lies within the walls of Fort Santiago and marvel the works and stories of our country’ she roes as you walk thru the National Museum of the Philippines.

Take a break and head down to Palawan to go island hopping and visit enchanted lagoons and caves that may lead to hidden beaches. Feel the white sand of the beach under your feet while you take in the view of the clear waters and bask in the sea and coral reefs of El Nido and Coron.

From atop a viewing deck, wonder at the spectacular creation that is the Chocolate Hills of Bohol. Come and revel at the site of the smallest primate, an endangered species known as tarsier, as you visit their sanctuary in Loboc.

“This and much more when you visit the Philippines!"
