Diskubre Tour, the heritage tour for young Filipino-Americans aged 18-35, is an educational opportunity for second – generation and young Filipino-Americans designed to promote a deeper appreciation of their Filipino heritage, and a spirit of giving back to the motherland through intellectual capital and sweat equity. The project was initially conceived as a means to promote Philippine tourism to the Filipino-Americans. The immersion experience was included as the core component, after observing that millennials and young travelers value experiential travel more than the usual tourist or visitor activities.
The Diskubre Tour will take the pilot batch to Manila, Corregidor, Baguio, Banaue, Sagada, and Subic from July 6 to 17 to immerse the participants in the communities of the Mountain Province . The group will commune with the locals, learn farming practices, experience the culture of the indigenous tribes, and live the Filipino way of life, to ultimately discover their roots.
Vice Consul Khrystina Corpuz Popov revealed the program initiated by the Philippine Consulate General in New York, with the support of the Philippine Department of Tourism New York and its official media partner, ABS-CBN Global Studios’ Discovering Routes.
