Should Foreigners Pay More Than Locals?


UPDATE: A few days after I published this podcast, I went on a trip to Calauit Wildlife Sanctuary in Palawan, Philippines. There, one of the caretakers mentioned why foreigners should pay more than locals. She said, “It is only fitting that foreigners pay more than locals. Because they don’t pay taxes.”

I like it when people comment on my blog because I feel validated as a blogger. Haha! But there’s this one blog reader who attacked me because she was angry by the fact that foreigners have to pay more to get to a certain island in the Philippines. As if it was my fault for simply posting the regulated fees imposed by the local government!

But it got me thinking; should foreigners pay more than locals? What do you think?
