Bohol reopened its doors to tourists last December 15, 2020, in the hopes of restoring their tourism industry bit by bit. Yes, the tourism industry in the Philippines is the one mostly affected by the prolonged lockdown in the country causing the hospitality sector to crumble and lose money.
According to Bohol Governor Arthur C. Yap, "We have to convince visitors that it is safe to come to Bohol, but we also have to convince our local stakeholders that it is safe to accept the visitors," "Kailangan ma-assure din natin ang local residents na safe. That really encapsulates the story of Bohol. It’s always been a tug-of-war that we have to convince people to come as well as—more than anything else—the stakeholders that it’s safe to accept visitors."
Before the lockdown, Bohol has been receiving 30,000 visitors on a daily basis but when they reopened last year, they only saw a total of 1,200 travelers who visited their province.
Bohol Escapade During the Pandemic
