One of the industries that each country anchors in terms of development that would yield a promising economic impact is the dynamic and flourishing industry of Tourism and Hospitality. With its utmost importance, the Tourism and Hospitality industry has to be sustainable as most of the civilized countries nowadays rally on sustainability. This research endeavored to determine whether or not the Philippines has good and sound laws to ensure the best quality experience for tourists. Said laws would thereby create a sustainable tourism and hospitality industry with a clear framework for the entire industry based on laws that would protect and preserve the Philippine destinations. Te presence of laws that would promote sustainable tourism would contribute to the long term program of the government towards sustainable tourism. A genuine sustainable Tourism and Hospitality Industry must have some pillars so that it would realize its goals and objectives. Tese pillars should be strong enough to withstand all the challenges of its implementation and enforcement. One of these pillars would be legislations, policies, and regulations which would thereby give a clear framework and blueprint for the sustainability of the Tourism and Hospitality Industry.
