Learning from Bali, post-quake Bohol 'rebranding' local tours
On a sweltering noon at the start of the holiday season, the festive boats moored at the dock are starting to fill up with guests for the popular luncheon tour along the serene Loboc River. It’s a cheerful sight amid the stark reminders of the powerful 7.2 magnitude earthquake that jolted Bohol in October. At the docking area, half of the roof was gone and the supports were askew. Across the river, what remained of the crumbled Loboc Church lay in ruins.
