Boracay, Baguio, Tagaytay to reopen popular destinations for tourists

 The Department of Tourism is planning to finally take a step in reopening some of the country's tourist destinations despite of the COVID-19 threat.

Boracay Island will finally reopen to tourists on October 1 as authorities are eyeing the gradual resumption of tourism service.

Don't expect things to go right back to normal when these reopen - most, if not all, will implement relevant health measures such as ensuring that guests keep an appropriate distance from one another.

"Unti-unti nating binubuksan ang ating tourist destinations. Ang instruction ni Secretary Berna Romulo-Puyat is to make a slow but sure reopening of tourism activities," DOT Usec. Benito Bengzon Jr. told Unang Hirit.

Tourist destinations under modified general community quarantine (MGCQ) may resume operation as long as they are ready to comply with the guidelines set by the DOT to prevent the spread of the virus.

Meanwhile, Baguio City, the "Summer Capital of the Philippines" is also opening to tourists on October 1 with visitors from neighboring town and regions as priority.

Tagaytay City:

Tagaytay tourist destinations are now open, with 80% of the city's resturant have reopened for buisness and 10% of the hotels are ready to accomodate tourists. Picnic Grove, People's Park, and Sky Ranch have also been opened to the public at 50% capacity.

"Sa mga gustong pumunta ng Tagaytay, pakiusap namin ay sumunod lang ho sa aming health and safety protocols. Kung hindi ho ay kawawa ang ating mga establisimyento dahil kung mgkakaroon ng kaso, automatic lockdown ho ang establishment," Tagaytay City administrator Gregorio Monreal said in ABS-CBN TeleRadyo interview.
