The HK black travel listing of the Philippines makes me want to get a pair hair cutting shears and send it as a gift to the Philippine Tourism secretary. With tourism being eyed as a major income source, the ban will substantially reduce the arrivals of the largest group of people that traditionally comes to the country. What a waste of marketing efforts. The Philippines should do something about this.
I traveled to Manila from HK and upon arrival, switched on my HK mobile phone. I was immediately greeted by a message coming from the HK government that the Philippines is in the black travel list and HK residents are warned. I heard that a lot of HK insurance companies will not pay for accidents and illnesses of HK residents if its contracted in the Philippines. If that is true, I will not be surprised if HK residents will continue to stop coming to Manila
