Many travelers are artists in their own right: most seek inspiration from their travels, and transform them into works of art on their social media accounts or blogs. In fact, one can argue that an artist can be defined as someone who know how to see and appreciate beauty, and for many travelers, that describes them perfectly.

The festival, held annually for the past seven years, has been pulling in both local and international audiences, eager to see the musicality, artistry, and beautiful sights to see what the Philippines has to offer.
