  2. Hello,

    I am a geography teacher from Germany and I am preparing a lesson about tourism in Bohol. I wonder if there is any statistic data about tourist arrivals before 2004 (just to compare the data with model from R.W. Butler about the development of tourism in a region).

    Do you think that you could help me out with any data(or links)?

    Thank you very much for your cooperation.

    I am a college student and decided to use these data for my homework. I would like to know if I can possibly get the possible reasons why the visitor’s arrival in 2019 was the largest compared to the other years?

    • According to the Bohol Tourism Office, the increase in Tourist Arrivals in 2019 is due to:

      • Opening of Bohol-Panglao International Airport in November 27, 2018
      • Continued social media exposure of the local tourism sites, new attractive accommodation, and supporting infrastructures
      • Increase in the number of airline carriers, 3with direct international flights from Korea and China
