    Thank you!

  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.

    • Hi Nicole, we only post what we can get from the Bohol Tourism Office, which also get their data from the Department of Tourism. As of the moment, we haven’t got any update yet. You may also try to inquire from the Bohol Tourism Office or from the Department of Tourism if they have such updated data already.
