    I don't know.
    I find it interesting that I know of many friends with vehicles and money being able to bring their children to the now opened resorts and other places even though the ordinances says stay at home. I was taking a scenic drive up to Twin Lakes today and was behind a rent for hire white tourist van. They were crammed to the hilt inside the van and there were many kids too. I followed them in curiosity. They stopped at the guard point area and after talking a while then got back in to turn around. I spoke with the lady guarding the entrance and she said that the rules of 60 and above and 21 and younger were being enforced. I am just curious. Maybe the private sector is less willing to follow it then the governmental sector which must. Kids are all out bicycling and on motorbikes and everywhere already. Anyone's thoughts on this?

    I bet it is selective enforcement even at government offices. SSS and immigration seem to have no problem letting the elderly in.

    Twin Lakes is a Government concern it is Administered by the Philippine Forestry Commission.

    I think that is what was said, the government employee at the guard shack turned the bus away.

    so, once you arrive at the entry to the park with the manned office and barrier across the road. is the only alternative then to walk into the park? we have been there twice. we see this nice road going up the hill but they will not let us use it and direct us to park and walk.
