I WAS in Lapu-Lapu City in Cebu when Super Typhoon "Odette" cut through Central Visayas last Dec. 16, 2021, leaving a trail of devastation in its wake. This, along with the economic ruin brought about by Covid-19, left many provinces in the Visayas reeling.

These days, however, I'm happy to report that the Visayas has picked itself up from the devastation and has soldiered on, especially in the field of tourism. Bohol and Negros Oriental, with the help of the Department of Tourism Region 7, have been promoting their tourist hot spots.
