Since the COVID-19 pandemic hit the country, tourism was generally affected.

Many establishments and businesses shut down due to bankruptcy.

Now that the country is closely returning to normalcy, the tourism industry is slowly recovering.

Resorts, parks, and other leisure grounds are almost open.

Of course, one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Philippines is an island resort.

They paid P19,000 in cash and settled the remaining balance thru Gcash.

Among the items, they paid for is “kilawin fish” which cost as much as 3,000 pesos, and 20 pieces of banana that cost P900.

Her post has gone viral, garnering mixed reactions from the netizens.

  1. Pangmayaman lang kasi yan lugar na yan exclusive nga eh at nag tanong muna bago omorder ang problem nauna ang lamon ayan tuloy

  2. Pang mayaman lang daw ang panglao kaya wag na kayo pumunta doon kung middle class lang kayo. Ang ibang lugar na lang sa Pilipinas. Sa Boracay na lang. I assure you, mas maganda pa ang beaches ng Boracay kay sa Panglao.
