Whether it be island hopping, diving, or trekking, we hope to showcase the many adventures that make travelling more fun in the Philippines!”We are also delighted to have engaged top Australian Instagrammer and photographer, Rob Mulally, as our lead Instagrammer for this exciting world first. Working with leading Instagrammers in the Philippines, Rob will capture some of the most stunning locations in Palawan which was named the most beautiful island in the world recently by Conde Nast Traveller.World Tourism Day in 2015 aims to raise awareness of the important impact tourism has on countries and communities around the world and its potential as a force for good, creating a better world for all. As the sun rises in each destination on September 27, Instagrammers will commence posting until the sun sets in their location. Beginning at sunrise in Samoa, the westernmost point of the earth and travelling across the world, until it finishes at sunset in the Cook Islands 36 hours later, the global relay will showcase destinations in every daylight hour around the world. Kim Portrate, Chief Marketing Officer at helloworld, is proud to be leading a movement that will create social media history. “There are approximately five million Australians checking into Instagram every month with 70% of those users active every day.
