images-51Australians tourists are being urged to continue with their plans to holiday in the Philippines, despite the typhoon and earthquake which have hit the region.
Typhoon Haiyan came nearly a month after an earthquake registering 7.2 on the the Richter scale struck the region.

On Monday, the Australian government advised visitors to ”exercise a high degree of caution” when visiting the Philippines.

Consuelo Jones, from the Philippine Department of Tourism (Australia/New Zealand), urged Australians to support her country in its time of need.

”I strongly feel that any Australian with plans of going to the Philippines should go,” she said.

”Tourists can help our economy and still enjoy their holiday. None of the major tourist destinations were affected by the typhoon. It only crossed the northern part of Cebu. All flights have been restored throughout the country, except to Leyte.”
