As a resort community, Pacific Coast City offers unparalleled Pacific Ocean views which sharpen one’s fascination with emerald blues and sparkling stretches of sand. A prime ocean front conjures majestic dreams and soothes life’s bruises. The ensuing exhilarating experience is definitely a come-on that money cannot buy.
Future artists, scientists, inventors, cultural workers will be far easier to come by since they can rest their bodies and spirits here. Golf enthusiasts will also be inspired playing on championship golf courses while tourists/guests can luxuriate in well-appointed hotels and marinas. Who says havens such as these are impossible?
Without doubt, our Resort City which will rise on some 10,000 hectares can accommodate 10 million, even 20 million, tourists each year. Of course, beaches alone will not attract hundreds of thousands of millions of tourists. It’s what we put on the beaches – the development, the infrastructures, the amenities, and the activities that will entice them to come and stay, even linger for some time.
In this future Resort City, ecotourism shall be promoted and upheld. It’s sustainable development that matters. Our forests here, our indigenous flora and fauna, shall be continuously and zealously protected. Right now, our forests are hardly protected because people will keep on cutting trees and our forests cannot defend themselves against hungry people.
Tourism, as a top dollar-earning industry in the country, has so much room to improve in. We need to have a sufficient number of tourists to come to our country every year. France, for example, had 70 million tourists last year and it is targeting 80 million next year as against 120 million tourists in the United States and Spain’s higher number of tourists. Our country can barely toot our horns with our 2.4 million tourist arrivals as of this year.
The Philippines is blessed by nature, our natural resources incredible in their diversity, in their pristine beauty. Fully developed, the Resort City can draw 10 million tourists a year. At $200 a day that each tourist spends in this country at 365 days a year, multiplied by 10 million tourists, the economic gains are simply staggering. Resort City at Pacific Coast City bears a strong potential to become a major master planned tourist destination.
