 ABSTRACT

Incorporating evolving technology into the Philippine hospitality industry may help improve the tourist experience, from arranging travel plans to discovering new destinations with a local perspective.  But it may negate one of the advantages that the Philippines has over some other countries – the personal touch and interpersonal skills of the Filipinos. This study aims to determine the level of adoption of Filipinos of technology employed in the hospitality and tourism sector.
