Amazing Thailand

Thailand is one of the several countries that were devastated by the Indian Ocean Boxing Day Tsunami of 2004, caused by a powerful 9.5 magnitude in the Richter scale earthquake, with the epicenter located just off the Northern part of the island of Sumatra, Indonesia. The most deadly natural disaster of the century, over 200,000 lives were taken and others were reported missing and were presumed dead. The havoc of the tsunami even reached the far coast of Africa still with deadly force, wiping the low lying nation of Maldives.

In terms of tourism, the six affected provinces are of significance for Thailand as in 2004 they generated 17% of total tourism revenues in the entire nation. The affected area has a total of 1,130 hotels with a total of 40,272 rooms. Assets were destroyed and damaged by the direct action of the tsunami, and hotel occupancy rates dropped considerably thereafter in the six affected provinces, generating significant losses to the sector.

The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) reported at the end of January that some 328 hotels (24% of the total room capacity) in the affected provinces were either destroyed or damaged. The estimated replacement value of the hotel infrastructure, and of the furniture and other goods contained therein, as well as in other tourism-related commercial facilities (stalls, shops, and restaurants).

Losses of revenue for the sector due to the drop in tourist arrivals, both international and domestic were estimated on the basis of actual statistics through June 2005 and projections for the rest of the year and for 2006. Separate estimations were made for international and domestic tourism as they have behaved differently; international tourists are recovering at a slow pace, due to the uncertainty of available hotel facilities and remaining fear of the tsunami, while Thailand tourists are arriving in the affected areas with higher recovery rates.

Today, Thailand is one of the top visited countries in the whole world, its tourism still booming with its country’s slogan Amazing Thailand; somehow it is as if the Indian Ocean Tsunami never happened to the eyes of people who happened to be living under a rock since the early 2000s although there are remnants and scars of the incident that simply cannot be erased albeit Thailand recuperated throughout the years that has passed.

This is one resort in Khao Lak that was swept by the sea, many tourists were present during the tragedy until they were no longer present. However today, the resort is good or it is back to the way it was only better.

Perhaps the most amazing about Thailand is the resilience of its people is very much commendable, from helping others to rebuilding their homes, and getting on with their life, and then right after go back to where the tourism industry has left them. In present, Thailand is as amazing as ever despite the natural calamity that opened the eyes of the whole world to an awareness about something that no one could stop. However, fear should not stop one’s desire to discover the perfect dichotomy between religion and self-expression culture.

15 Best Places to Visit for the LGBTQ+

Traveling or leaping around the world for the LGBTQ is not that easy as one may seem, for the mundane it should not be a big of a deal, perhaps people who do not understand the struggles would assume that queer couples could be forced into the closest even while traveling, or while they are supposed to be out there, enjoying the world as anyone else.

There at least 77 countries that have declared LGBT communities illegal in their law, such countries closed both their homes and hearts to their fellow human being. Cases like these should not be taken lightly whereas there are incidents where the LGBT folks have been bullied, cast away, discriminated, and even murdered in hostile places.

With eGetinnz, everyone can find a home away from home, especially the rainbow unicorns that have been shied away for so long. Life is about more than just labels anyway, and one should travel and live to the fullest.

We have listed countries that are safe for these fabulous people to visit and to grace even more diversity.

Puerto Galera: The Frugal Man’s Boracay

tumblr_mmmolmnMiy1qbyo2do5_1280

White sand beach? Crystal clear waters? Great nightlife?

There are at least a dozen different things one can do in Puerto Galera, or Gale, as the locals call their beautiful paradise of a home. From pitching tents, lighting bonfires, playing beach volleyball & Frisbees, watching the sunset, gazing at the stars, climbing cliffs, driving bikes around the area, the list could go on when discovering Oriental Mindoro’s Gale.

However, the water is still the main attraction of Gale, Crystal clear water shimmering under the sun. Puerto Galera’s landscape is very ideal for swimming, sailing, surfing, snorkeling, and scuba diving. In fact, there is no need to ride a boat to a diving site. Within a kilometer from the coast, schools of Moorish idols are already thriving in the shallow reefs of Gale.

tumblr_mvubyjxDsf1snokoqo3_1280

 

  1. Where is Puerto Galera situated?

Gale is located on the northern shore of the island of Mindoro, 130km south of Manila, and 14 nautical miles away from Batangas Pier. You can reach Gale by land transport to Batangas pier and then by sea ferry to the paradise.

 

  1. How long is the travel time?

From Metro Manila to Batangas pier usually takes two to three hours depending on the traffic flow. The fastest route is by Skyway, South Luzon Expressway, then Calabarzon highway all the way to Batangas pier. Lastly, the ferry boat ride takes one hour to one and a half.

 

  1. How much does public transportation cost?

Gale is close in proximity to Manila, making it the cheap alternative of Boracay. A four-hour bus ride and ferry travel worth less than 500php (one-way), one way to get to White Beach is by taking a bus with a signage of “Batangas Pier via Calabarzon” near the LRT Gil Puyat station in Pasay City. The fare for an aircon bus is less than 200php and it will take you to Batangas Pier, where you should alight and would find Puerto Galera bound ferries. Pick a ferry that could take you directly to White Beach with a 250pho fare.

 

  1. What time does the ferry leave for Puerto Galera?

The first ferry trip to Puerto Galera departs at around 7:30 AM. Thereafter, a ferry leaves every hour until 5:00 PM which is normally the last trip to Puerto Galera.

 

  1. Where should I stay, Sabang or White Beach?

Sabang and White Beach are the flagships of Puerto Galera to par with nearby island’s beaches. Although there is this understatement that tourists prefer Sabang beach while locals go to White Beach. Perhaps the reason behind is that Sabang is swarmed by a number of high-class resorts, offering best dive education in the country, and dive sites are literally a stone’s throw away. Nightlife in Sabang is also different from White’s, somehow it is akin to the old Ermita, the former red light district of Metro Manila.

One comparison is that Sabang Beach is for the young and adventurous, meanwhile, White Beach is for families, for the carefree individuals who enjoy casual activities under the sun.

White Beach (Brgy San Isidro) is the most popular of Puerto Galera’s 32 beaches, especially among Filipino tourists. Come summer, from March to May. The beaches are filled with people, relaxing, walking to and fro, sunbathing, playing volleyball, riding jet skis and banana boats. At dawn, people sit at the beach to witness one of the best sunsets in the country. At night, more people come out to enjoy meals at beachfront restaurants. There are several open-air bars with drag queen dancers and serving Puerto Galera’s trademark concoction, “Mindoro Sling”. There are also many tattoo shops and souvenir shops along White Beach.

 

  1. How do I find places to stay at in Puerto Galera?

Perhaps one of the reservations of many travel bugs is about accommodations, but rest assured eGetinnz has everyone’s back, providing flexible options for travelers. eGetexperience Puerto Galera today and let us help you leap around the world.
