Manila FAME buyers get a chance to win a holiday experience in the Philippines like no other

An extraordinary Luxe Escape dream destination holiday awaits one lucky overseas trade buyer of Manila FAME’s April 2016 show edition.


At Manila FAME, foreign trade buyers get to source artisanal, green crafts, and luxe products for the home, holiday, and fashion sectors. Buyers are assured of full assistance by Manila FAME organizers, from online pre-registration to pre-arranged business meetings with on-site exhibitors, after-show transactions, and year-round sourcing of the finest of Philippine products, thus, ensuring a satisfying buying experience.

On top of these benefits, Manila FAME—through its Luxe Escape raffle promo—offers overseas trade buyers a chance to win a dream vacation in an exquisite tropical island paradise in Donsol, Sorsogon province, the southernmost part of the Bicol Peninsula in Luzon. The province is home to the planet’s largest fish: the magnificent and gentle “butanding” or whale sharks.

The captivating Sorsogon holiday experience includes round-trip flight arrangements and accommodation—a four-day/three-night stay at a luxurious and distinctly Filipino island resort hotel.

Sorsogon offers a wide range of exciting and meaningful activities, which the Luxe Escape winner can take pleasure in. These include the opportunity to go swimming with the “butanding” in Donsol; go sunset cruising and firefly-watching in Donsol River; and get a glimpse of the past by visiting Barcelona’s St. Joseph Church and Juban’s Spanish stone houses dating back to the Spanish colonial era. The winner can also take a relaxing dip into Irosin’s natural hot and cold springs, and trek up to the summit of Mt. Bulusan and marvel at the breathtaking view of the Pacific Ocean and West Philippines Sea. In this dream vacation, they can discover Tikling and Calintaan Islands’ pink sandy coasts and Bacon district’s pristine beaches, and take a plunge into the Manta Bowl dive site, the Philippines’ Manta Ray Capital, which is also rich in rare marine life. The possibilities for exploring other eco-tourism sites such as rainforests, caves, waterfalls, and lakes are endless, and the winner gets to indulge in the scrumptious seafood and local delicacies of the province.
