CITY OF SAN FERNANDO, Pampanga (PIA) — The Department of Tourism (DOT) urged public support for Angeles City’s bid in the World Culinary Awards under the “Asia’s Best Emerging Culinary City Destination” category.

During the seventh episode of the Kapihan sa Bagong Pilipinas of the Philippine Information Agency, DOT Regional Director Richard Daenos said the city has been shortlisted through the submission of their dossier, as well as its visibility in activities related to gastronomy.

“This will be a good brand for the Philippines to highlight that our food is world-class. Our [culinary] processes really need to take center stage in the global map,” he emphasized.

For this year’s edition, Angeles City will represent the Philippines in competing against other culinary hotspots, including Hanoi in Vietnam, Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia, Kyoto in Japan, and Taipei in Taiwan.

The World Culinary Awards is the sister event of the World Travel Awards, which was established in 1994.

Often referred to as the “Oscars of the travel industry”, the esteemed event recognizes excellence in travel and tourism.

As such, Daenos said Angeles City needs the support of all Filipinos by voting online.

To vote, individuals may register at worldculinaryawards.com/register, and then navigate to the Nominees 2024 section after completing the registration.

Under the Asia category, voters may find and click on Asia’s Best Emerging Culinary City Destination 2024, then select Angeles City, Pampanga (Philippines) to cast their vote. (CLJD/MAECR, PIA Region 3-Pampanga)
