Before we invites people from around the world or tourist people , first we should fix our roads, bridges, clean our beaches , rivers and plant more tees, do some nice landscaping , clean the surroundings, beautify our roads like put up some nice plants along the road,m all taxi drivers should be neat and clean hair cut, no garbage around all areas, our markets should be clean. It would be nice if we have a a nice clean beach exclusives for the tourist people only and no local people will be using the beach because I noticed that too many locals swimming in the beaches keep the tourist away, there's no privacy especially Filipinos a re too noisy in the crowd. Not only that, most Filipinos are not wearing bathing suits in the beach, just a T-shirts while the tourist people are wearing bathing suits. I think the Philippine Government should consider this. Then the tourist people would love to come in the Philippines. And also ban people or vendors walking around the beaches because it's so annoying. They should have a designated area where they can sell their products not to walk around the beaches. Make sure that all the beaches should be always clean and no garbage around. People should not peed on the sand because it cause itchy and smelly.

I have an idea, why don't we have a field trip for every school, just split them into a small group to avoid accident. They should have a day or a week for the students to tour around the Philippines because too many Filipinos don't know where parts of the Philippines are located. Like a Summer break Excursion something like that. We should encourage our local tourist to visits our Islands in the Philippines. Of course it generates revenue locally. Philippines is better than Singapore, China, Thailand, Malaysia , Hongkong, and taiwan, Why would we go there for? There's no scenic view there? It's all about shopping. Why don't we create our own shopping center especially clothing, shoes and encourage our all local Filipino designers in a resonable price so we don't need to go shopping to Hongkong and Singapore and also it creates jobs locally so we Filipinos don't need to go abroad.

During its early conception, Filipinos hated the MMDA for imposing similar rules and discipline in the traffic and undisciplined cursed streets of Metro Manila. No doubt Filipinos will similarly protest against your proposals.

we should have an events like show our Folk dances like tinikling, pandamgo, etc. let the tourist dance with our Folk Filipino dancers too and wear the national customs in the Philippines and let them take a pictures . That would be great.

But first, we need to improve our roads, bridges and all the sidewalks and too many bumpy roads, too many pot holes everwhere. We should have a Bus Tourist with a Tour Guide in it. But make sure we should impose safety to our tourist people. We can't just let the, come and then they're being killed, kidnap, sexually harass, being robbed ,. We should anticipate things before it happens.

And it would be nice if we change our Police Uniform because it's very old and not vibrant color. We need a color that represent our country. Uniform that Filipino people respected them.

You know there's lots of things to do in the Philippines. There's plenty of them. We should be creative. Don't show things that 's already done in other countries.

You have already helped promote the Philippines enough with your ridiculous posts.
People come here now expecting to get girls just for the price of pizza and juice, like your 2 nieces you told everyone about. Or they think they can buy a blue eyed blonde haired baby for 10 pesos, another one of your fabricated stories. Not to mention the acid rain your uncle collects to put in his car battery etc etc.
The best thing you can do for the Philippines is get some professional help for your problems and stay on your medication.
