The devastation in Bohol after the October 15, 2013 earthquake is massive and let’s face it – with the senatorial glitches going on that resulted to budget cut down, the government cannot immediately restore all the ancient historical churches that went into rubble. Some are even impossible to re-build. Nonetheless, this news feature gives hope to the province – that was one of the major tourism destinations in the Philippines. Read this:
On the island of Bohol in Central Philippines, tourism is big business. There, tourists both foreign and Filipino flock to centuries-old churches, take in the view of hills that turn chocolate-like in the summer months, and eat at floating restaurants while serenaded by locals.
Nature has it’s way of taking care of its inhabitants. Instead of the historical churches, these popular spots are even becoming more valuable as ruins. They do not just represent the history and culture of ancient civilization but also becoming the present sentimental landmark of the people’s struggles who survived because of their faith and love for one another.
