Pinas Muna is a travel and leisure blog that aims to promote the Philippines as a travel and holiday destination by featuring its beautiful landscapes, its rich heritage and culture, its vibrant festivals, its delightful culinary treasures, its world-class hotels and restaurants, its fun-loving and hospitable people, and its proudly Filipino-made products.

The blog was established by Ramil Delos Reyes and Edgar Co in November 2010 with the primary goal of visiting all Philippine provinces. Four years after, in November 2014, we finally visited all 81 provinces, a milestone that we are very proud of.

After traveling around the Philippines, we realized that there is really more to the Philippines than just visiting all its provinces, or even perhaps all its 7,107 islands. And so the travel continues.

Pinas Muna, what does it mean?

Pinas Muna is a Filipino expression that means Philippines First. This tagline urges every Filipino to put the Philippines above everything else. If you share this same advocacy, please feel free to use the #PinasMuna hashtag in your social media accounts and together, let us promote the Philippines as a travel destination to our friends and relatives here in the country and around the world.

Pinas Muna supports the initiative of the ASEAN to promote tourism in the whole region. 2017 is a special year not only because the Philippines will chair the ASEAN, but the organization will also celebrate its 50th year anniversary.
