100m to fix the churches, plus roads

abs-cbnnews.com/lifestyle/10/16/13/restore-o…

This says an estimate of 100m pesos to fix the churches.

This one talks about its effect on tourism in bohol, cebu.

100m to fix heritage sights are loose change for the tourism industry. If they need to fix the roads and bridgesin bohol and spend several hundred million, they can easily justify that with tourism alone.

Assuming all of the above costs 500m pesos. assuming each foreign tourist spends at least 600 dollars or 30t pesos including lcc airfare. Thats just 16t foreign tourists.

Hello! The value to restore these sights is not as simple as looking it at 100M pesos. Tourists see this for its historical value, so get it restored! Sorry for the rant, but some people have a myopic view on things.

Catholic church has more than enough money to rebuild the churches. So do the politicians who are members of its church. 100 million in pesos is practically a pittance.

TA wants us to keep these discussions to 'travel' rather than socio-economic, religious or any other possible discussions.

So let's concentrate on letting TA users know which roads are open, which are not, what activities visitors can still undertake on Bohol and Panglao Islands and so on.
