While each province is known for its unique attributes this is the first time that the whole of Mindanao is united under one banner. This campaign is timely and significant as the Philippines has just opened its doors to international tourism since the pandemic.

Among tourism destinations identified are the agri-tourism circuit of Cagayan de Oro City to Bukidnon province; farm resorts in Buda, Davao City; pilgrimages between Misamis Oriental and Misamis Occidental; and dive sites in Camiguin. The campaign also highlights halal and Muslim-friendly tourism, one of the fastest-growing tourism sectors in the world.
