Check this book out: The Whole Truths You Should Know Before You Travel to the Philippines While the Travel Industry is too busy promoting the Philippines as a gracious paradise, they have kept the foreign tourists in the dark by not telling us the other deadly side of the Philippines. Sure, there are some breath-taking views of natural landscapes and some relatively safe resorts, but the truth is that tourists are kept in the dark about the whole truth about the Philippines. They have absolutely no clues of the danger facing them while they visit the Philippines because what they see from their television channel is all they know, unfortunately. Then you wonder why so many tourists get kidnapped and killed. There ought to be an end to this, don’t you think? While Dan Brown was visiting the Philippines in 2013, he described Manila as “the gates of hell” and deplored the abject poverty, crime, and prostitution. I am not sure that I would describe Manila as “the gates of hell,” but for those who are brutally beaten, kidnapped, and decapitated, it surely is. In fact, ask the surviving families of those kidnapped and killed in the Philippines about “paradise or safety” in the Philippines and see what answers you would get. I do think that things need to change not only for the traveling public but for the good of humankind as a whole.

So, the beautiful imagery that you see on your television screen constantly showing off some of the places of the Philippines exposes just one side, the good and positive side of the island while it keeps hidden the deadly side of the island. A fair and balanced presentation would address all sides of the coins: The good, the bad, and the ugly. It’s time that the travel industry concentrate on human beings and not just on the dollars; and it’s time that the traveling public wake up and smell the coffee by demanding accountability from the travel industry.
