    A nuclear plant in the Philippines that has sat untouched for over a quarter of a century has become an unlikely tourist attraction.

    With another power crisis now looming, energy officials hope allowing people to cheaply tour the facility will eventually win their much-needed support to finally bring the facility on-line, even though its fuel rods were sold off over 10 years ago and the plant is not well maintained.
