PicodiFebruary 5, 2020 analysis team decided to check the statistics of “romantic” queries on the internet in all regions and created the ranking of the most romantic places in the Philippines.

In search of romantic

Our queries list consisted of terms like “Valentine’s Day”, “love confession”, “flowers”, “love”, and others which would associate with Valentine’s Day. During the period before Valentine’s Day, the frequency of searching these queries increases in the whole Philippines. However, in some places, the interest in making a pleasant surprise to the significant other increases more, and in some — notably less.

Where do the most romantic Filipinos live?

After looking closely at Google’s figures, it turns out that the most romantic Filipinos live in Eastern Visayas, Central Visayas, and Central Luzon. In these regions, the increase in popularity of queries connected to Valentine’s Day was the highest. Eastern Visayas, known for its charming places for scuba diving and snorkelling, apparently encourages its residents to dive into love as well.

Among all regions, the lowest interest in Valentine’s Day and all connected to it was noted among residents of Mimaropa Region (17th place). SOCCSKSARGEN and Caraga turned out to be quite unromantic as well (16th and 15th place respectively)

Here’s the full ranking of regions:
