Oslob

Philippines
Oslob is a small village south of Cebu City, near the southern tip of Cebu Island. It has started blossoming into a tourist stop due to whale sharks that swim close to the coast. This tourist attraction is controversial because fisherman lure them into the coast by feeding them. It is left to the reader to decide if they want to support this.

Personal note

The whale sharks here are lured by fishermen who feed them. There's not much else to do here but swim with them. It's not exactly a natural experience, but you'll likely never be up so close to such magnificent creatures.. and if they were not a tourist attraction they'd be food instead...
