Other perks include improved health, deeper social connections, and investment opportunities
With the arrival of the pandemic, many Filipinos decided to spend their lockdown and work-from-home in amazing ecotourism destinations, and people found many perks to living in these ecotourism townships, reported the Inquirer.net.
Firstly, those that left urban centres and worked in vacation homes under cheaper long-term leases saw an improvement in health. Not only do people get a change of scenery that is relaxing, but nature has a way of uplifting the weary.
Secondly, deeper social connections can be made from activities that aren’t enticing in urban settings. Ecotourism townships provide neighbours the opportunity to share wholehearted experiences with one another, such as planting vegetables in a communal garden or watching the sunrise on the coast.
Moreover, as working from a destination allows for higher productivity and the cost of living is low in the countryside, people accumulated higher savings.
Lastly, ecotourism townships offer investment opportunities once the inevitable recovery comes and footfall returns. As tourism in the Philippines is hard-hit by COVID-19 and the real estate market turns into a buyer’s market (discounts and low mortgage rates), people can invest in small businesses or properties to keep or lease out.
