Working Towards a World Heritage Site

It’s one thing when a destination is certified tourist friendly. But It’s another thing when a destination works on making it a UNESCO Heritage Site. Batanes is campaigning for this because making it into a Heritage Site will help the island develop it’s unique culture. Tourism more often than bring changes into the cultural landscape of a destination. Boracay has become a world-class get away complete with metropolis culture. Unfortunately, ecoli scares and trash management problems continue to plague the tourist vacation site. Ivatans of Batanes won’t allow that to happen to Batanes. To date, there’s only one hotel in Basco and it can only accommodate 30 people at a time.
