The Philippines is a land of great natural beauty. Through the years, many attempts have been made to take advantage of this and develop tourism into one of the country's biggest revenue-earners.
With the continuing destruction of the environment and the rapid loss of the very resources that are being counted upon to draw visitors, it has become necessary to examine what i s being done, and determine how the national tourism development programs may be revised.
Quiet Places: A Look at Ecotourism in the Philippines is about a new, more relevant and more gentle kind of tourism. A way of traveling that has become popular all over the world and is finally gaining advocacy in the Philippines.
Learn more about the concepts behind ecotourism; witness examples of how they are implemented in the Philippines. And see why they are now regarded as the appropriate and sustainable alternative to the more damaging commercialism that prevails in the mainstream tourism sector today.
Find your way to extraordinary places on the archipelago where ecotourism in the marine and riverine settings is being promoted, with remarkable results.
Places such as Tubbataha Reefs in the Sulu Sea; Anilao in Batangas, Bais in Negros Oriental, the Loboc & Abatan Rivers in Bohol, Agusan Marsh in Mindanao, Donsol in Sorsogon, Batanes Islands, Lake Sebu in Cotabato, Honda Bay & Coron in Palawan and the Turtle Islands in Tawi-Tawi.
Meet some people who are playing important roles in the promotion of the new thrusts for an industry dedicated more and more to conserving nature's gifts, while paving the way for economic progress.
