Bohol wiping off the dust

Since the 7.2 magnitude earthquake that jolted Bohol two months ago, tourism had been slow and sleepy. I drove around Bohol for the most part of December and saw for myself how the devastation pulverized most of the heritage sites and left locals (whose livelihood rely mainly on tourism) fall on hard times.

Based on what I saw from Northern to Interior Bohol, I reckoned that it might take some time before Bohol can wipe off the dust and stand on its happy feet again.

Egypt has been a tourist hotspot for many years, mainly due to the historic connection to the Ancient Egyptians. Over the years certain regions in the country have developed to accommodate the holidaymakers, and other activities aside from sightseeing have sprung up to attract even more visitors. 

One such activity is scuba diving, and there are few places in the world better for this than Egypt’s Sharm el Sheikh. There are tonnes of fab resorts here to base your diving stay with sharm el sheikh hotels from at very reasonable prices.
