Geotourism or the ‘tourism of geology and landscape’ is an emerging form and sustainable approach to developing tourism. The Philippines is an archipelagic country that is rich in geological resources and heritage. Currently, the country recognizes and conserves unique geosites by declaring them as National Geological Monuments.
