  2. All right, fellas, who wants to volunteer for a “vacation” to Bohol with the prison warden watching and dictating your every move — and you get the pleasure of paying for said vacation. Any takers? Anyone? Anyone? Is this microphone on?

  3. I totally get what you’re saying, it wouldn’t my kind of vacation either, but: don’t forget people have been locked up for a long time now and for a few it will better to travel in a group than not at all. For the rest of us I see it as yet another step in the right direction. Give it a couple more month and few vaccinations and things will further improve. With 75% of people in the Philippines relying on tourism, something gotta give. All I would say is the following: Dear Philippines, I’ll see you in 6 month.

  4. So many countries hurting from CV19 but none that I know of have tried to hold China responsible and make them pay. I think tourism is going to up in price and the Philippines will look for foreigners to pay more.The “white tax”.

  5. I feel the same way you do about that type of restrictive travel, it ends up being a treatment, not a treat. I wouldn’t waste my time (or money). Maybe I’ll hold out for Thailand, lol.

  6. Thailand Vacation, only if you stay the full 9 months! The ASQ Quarantine in approved Hotels costs you at least min. 3.000,00 USD incl. 15 days Quarantine. You must be very desperate to stay only 30 days 😉 and 90 days is on the edge.

  7. from denmark….. i have not seen my gf there in 1 year soon………i will not give up on her…… but im getting so tired of the governent of the philippines.

  8. Nope no way would do it and my girl already said no way we will meet somewhere else and get married plus I like to go were ever I want and to be controlled.

  9. There is no way most Westerners will accept those restrictions, I wouldn’t even consider it. At the moment I think my love affair with the Philippines might be coming to an end and maybe it’s time to start exploring new destinations again. You never know, things could change again, they seem to often get things wrong before they get them right.

  10. It’s never going to happen who in their right mind… is going to pay strong money jump though all the hops and then be dictated to…. on when and where you can go… get a grip Philippines government

  11. Hi Gio! I think the “5 days” may have to do with the reality of Covid’s incubation period. So…even if your test already taken showed negative, it could be that they need to check you 5 days into your travel, in case you may have contracted the virus RIGHT before traveling. And, NO, I would NOT want to “travel” in that monitored/controlled “1984” style!

  12. These people really are ridiculous (policy makers). Oppressive, over bearing and just nonsensical. I mean they’re so over the top goofy with this situation.

  13. My girlfriend of 3 years she works in the hospital in lucena and we video chat 5 to 6 times aday..its not good there at the present so grow up people.lets wait and see what happens in march 21..get the vaccine and it will happen..

  14. i toured the island of bohol in 2015… and the white sand beaches of panglao is the only place worth seeing other than perhaps the “chocolate hills” which is really not worth seeing… very ho-hum for sure… for the rest of the island… there really is nothing worth seeing… i know because i drove around the entire island in a car and it is without question the least attractive island i have ever visited in the philippines… so for me this whole thing is just a marketing ploy by bohol to gain national attention… because maybe a handful of people will show up for a guided tour of the island of bohol… which is big yawner…that when completed results in you possibly enduring a 14 day quarantine when you return home.

  15. I’m in Thailand 🇹🇭 now and I’m it so sure it’s really that affordable if you have to quarantine for I think it’s 10 days in a hotel and when you do get out of quarantine places like Phuket, Pattaya, Koh Samui are very desolate there’s not much happening most businesses are on the brink of financial disaster?🇹🇭🤷‍♂️

  16. Davao City is under GCQ. Our crew is back from 9 PM to 6AM the same as before. They ran out of 3-day passes and only require the Q pass so you can go out 6 days a week instead of 3. It is less restrictive than it was when we were on GCQ before so I don’t see why we wouldn’t be able to travel there. Would I want to under those restrictions NO? It probably wouldn’t be any harder just to get permission to go to see ne’s family. She is from Bohol.

  17. How are the philiphino’s going to bear these extra costs? they haven’t had any income for months, i agree with you Gino this really won’t work

  18. Good video…. You are right this is not going to fly. The average Philippine family of 6 is not going to spend 30,000 peso for the tests plus all the other BS. They will fail big time…No I would not agree with this..

  19. Next year i have my retirement starts on may 1, if the situation continues like this, i will go with my Philiphino girllfriend to another country, latin america maybe, i think it would be better if the Philiphino Government just keep everything closed for now, impose a set of rules on the people, I think this will not work and makes people even more unhappy , the Philipino’s are allowed to leave the Philiphins but even that is a lot of stress and with a lot of rules to follow

  20. I’m not going to settle for something less .if I want to go to a certain place ,that’s where I’d like to go. Too many restrictions way more there than in North Carolina where I’m at.No I don’t have a sweet little beautiful Filipina to look at or be with. I’m definitely not going to take a killer vaccine just to come be with a beautiful Filipina lady.Everything I have is paid for end it barely cost me anything to stay here at least I’m safe

  21. I think even the mask wearers among us are starting to see these travel restrictions as ridiculous and really, its a shame, knowing all that we know now about this “pandemic” with the inflated death count and the average age of death being older than the average lifespan. All the things we know as fact, you can forget about it and you can talk until you’re blue in the face, these people in government positions of power suffer from a mental illness, its really as simple as that. You would think that a vaccination, although being bullshit, would be enough for travel, but no, this is not going to be the ticket out. The question would be, why the fuck not? Its like a dog chasing its own tail, there is no end in site, vaccinations or not. A very sad world we live in with too many people that are will to bend over and take it and then scream at you to wear a mask and obey. Well, international travelers are generally more freedom oriented, and I mean generally, lets not get confused, there are many, too fucking many, that have the opposing collectivist view.

  22. I will NEVER submit to that draconian level of control… And the poor filipino will pay the heaviest price… Remember, GOVERNMENT is the entire cause of this controlled demolition of the economy…not Faux’vid.

  23. Hi Gio,
    I guess some news like this is better than no news. It is a sign that they want to move forward.
    My GF keeps telling me that it will be soon, without any details of course.
    For a while,
    I thought Thailand was the least possible place to re-open.
    My question is;
    do you think the Philippines will take their ideas from places like Thailand? (I know The Philippines understand that they NEED tourism. It is the reason for the tourist visa in the first place.)

  24. When one country in Asia starts opening up and bringing in the much needed money, the other countries will follow the model that is successful. The pressure to allow one country to rebuild their economy while others stay closed will result in all the other countries competing for a piece of the pie.

  25. Does that mean you cannot book your own accommodation
    There will be kick backs going on in this process.
    I have my family and want to be with my family

  26. Hello Gio new subscriber here, I agree with you I don’t think lots of us are going to be interested in bohol, like many I have been waiting for the government to relax the restrictions a bit,but for retirees people who would like to retire in the Philippines ,they sure are making it difficult, I thought the government was aware that lots of people depend their livelihoods on tourism.

  27. I totally agree Gio. The government there is placing too many restrictions even on domestic travel and I dont expect ANY international flights within the first 6 months of 2021. In fact, they will most likely accept ONLY flights from other S.E. Asian countries.

  28. They opened up Boracay a few months ago and they can’t average 100 people a day with the same restrictions ..In 2018 and 2019 they averaged about 5500 tourists a day the local people are really hurting on Boracay. So why would it be any different. When you have a massive fail why would you stay with the same restrictions and expect different results

  29. Until Covid virus situation is taken care of…why bother traveling anywhere. Too many restrictions, and if you do contract the virus and get sick… good luck returning back to your country of origin!!

  30. I give up! I’m done with the Philippines. To govern a country there needs to be logical decisions made regarding the laws of the land. The Philippines lack solid logical decisive leadership.

  31. Everyone should just calm down…. 3 vaccines on the market and more on the way with things now moving at breakneck speed. In the UK the government already distributing vaccines to the most vulnerable and in a few months the Philippines should see their batch arrive. And all u people spewing anti- vaccine sentiments simply do not understand the nature of risk vs reward . It’s with every medicine that u take – even a painkiller, and yet you take the damn thing. Keep believing the [email protected] being peddled on social media…

  32. Thailand has something similar to the Bohol idea whereby groups of tourists were guided around certain areas of the country, needless to say the concept failed miserably. Also there was an announcement in the news today that Thailand tourism is open to the world which is only lip service, very few tourists if any will visit Thailand with all the restrictions in place and once visitors arrive they will find the country shut down with activities, bars and restaurants, shops all locked up. You know business is really bad when the 7-11 other mini markets, fast food restaurants shut down. It will be many years for any sort of recovery with some travel analysts saying the tourist industry is gone forever.

  33. ​Good morning Gio. Looks like tourism will open soon i think. How do I signup as a member? I don’t like to get into drama but I noticed reekay is not promoting your channel anymore. Did something happen? If you don’t want to discuss no problem. Keep up the good work

  34. China is out to gain world dominance in all financial issues. ,China wants all countries shut down and China has the funds to weather this storm
    . This will last until all economies are destroyed and China has control. Here is a quote from NPR China posted 4.9% economic growth in its third quarter compared to the same period last year, keeping it on track to be the only major global economy to record an economic expansion this year in the midst of the novel corona virus pandemic.

    Economists estimate China’s yearly GDP growth could be north of 2.5% this year — even as the rest of the world economy is expected to shrink by at least 4%. That differential will give Chinese companies in sectors ranging from electronics to steel more global market share and greater economic influence.

  35. Hey….who wouldn’t want to have a 28 day quarantine for their 14 day vacation…. Clearly there is a problem.

    Until we finally decide that each individual is clear to travel in or out of a destination, there is no such thing as local tourism beyond the local province.

    I would be happy to do the quarantine requirements to get home but anything else is a pipe dream.

  36. I,m hearing alot of negative feedback, and it does seem crazy for a vacation to be dictated by others, but on the other hand, am I the only one in a LDR that has been waiting for several months to meet my lady for the first time and would jump on any opportunity to do that?

  37. I’m waiting to come over for 6 months to Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam or Cambodia. Whichever country has the best options in 2021 will capture the initial tourist rush back. And have a better chance to maintain that momentum.

  38. I’m with you Gio, no way I’d go on a travel group vacation or trip. I recently read an article that stated that Boracay was getting 3500+ visitors a week in past years, but is only averaging 72 visitors a week now. The average Filipino cant afford to vacation right now. The government needs to realize that, and open up to international travel, if they want to get close to filling their hotel rooms and restaurants…
