Boracay Dos and Don’ts

For six months Boracay were closed to the public for rehabilitation. The government on Monday began its 10-day dry run for the October 26 soft opening.

As we all know Boracay is one of the top tourist destination not only in the Philippines but also in Asia.

According to Environment Secretary Roy Cimatu during the program for Boracay’s opening dry run, the island is “now a sight to behold,”

During the dry run, the government will check the island’s water quality, solid waste management and transportation system.

Local residents who wish to visit the island were given priority during the dry run.

President Duterte had said he wants only a small part left for tourist and its majority turned into a land reform area to prioritized original inhabitants.

Below were some photos of the new Boracay and we should be proud of it!
