The resort was average, it wasn’t even well maintained at that and moreover, it was full of Koreans– not that there’s anything wrong with Koreans visiting our islands, they’re good for our tourism industry.
Those in the resort we stayed in however weren’t there for the view. They were there to study english. Apparently, our reputation as the best english speakers (really?!) in the region has grown to such extent that they come here in droves just to be individually tutored. And I’m not talking about middle aged folks here, there were a lot of kids there and some teenagers as well. The owner of the resort said that some stay for a year just to learn the language. Imagine that. A full year of learning english. Staying. In. A. Beach. Resort. And they do nothing in the afternoons but play tennis and hit the swimming pool.
Enough with the envy.
Here’s a couple of pictures I took of the Muelle Port in Puerto Galera. If somebody showed this to me minus the bancas, I wouldn’t have believed that this is actually in Luzon. Pretty darn pretty I think.
Here’s a trivia; in this far off place, do you think people here follow English Football?
Hint: Look at the name of the banca. Lol.
