Tourists cancel bookings due to Philippine clashes

Published on : Thursday, April 13, 2017

PhilippineClashes between Philippine troops and suspected Abu Sayyaf militants have raised concerns about travel and tourism in the central province where the fighting is taking place.

Jaypee Orcullo, an officer of the Department of Tourism in Bohol province, said some tourists cancelled hotel reservations. He estimated around 10 percent may have cancelled their online booking.

But he said the situation is normal at the white sand beaches of Bohol’s Panglao islands that are frequented by tourists, and the province’s capital Tagbilaran. The site of the fighting that started Tuesday is an isolated area a three-hour road ride away from Panglao, and about two hours away from Tagbilaran.

Orcullo said officials from the Association of Southeast Asian Nations and Hong Kong are scheduled to meet in Bohol next week and many hotels are fully booked.
