Baguio sees a bullish bounce back of its tourism industry after easing up its restrictions taking cue from the 3-day “long weekend”.

Baguio tourism chief Alec Mapalo said, since non-essential travels were allowed Friday as the city was declassified to Alert Level 3, “we have experienced an influx of tourists.”

Some 974 documented tourists came to Baguio on Friday, followed by a hiked 1916 on Saturday, 1943 on Sunday and 1735 on Monday.

Mapalo however assured the allowed tourists were able to come “only after complying with entry requirements” including full vaccinations for adults.

Seeing this as a good sign for tourism bounce back, interested travelers even exceeded Baguio’s limit of 2,000, Mapalo hinted.

It could only mean one thing, added the tourism official, “our tourism sector can look forward to a substantial recovery anytime soon”.
