THOU­SANDS of pas­sen­gers from Cen­tral Visayas have started flock­ing to ports in the re­gion as the ex­pected ex­o­dus of trav­el­ers be­gins over the week­end for the long All Saints’ Day hol­i­day, the Philip­pine Coast Guard (PCG) said Satur­day.

Ac­cord­ing to the PCG, as of 6 a.m. on Satur­day, they had mon­i­tored 6,877 sea travel pas­sen­gers in Cen­tral Visayas, the sec­ond high­est num­ber recorded in the eight Coast Guard dis­tricts.

The PCG said they mon­i­tored a to­tal of 25,139 pas­sen­gers in the eight Coast Guard dis­tricts.

The high­est num­ber of trav­el­ers came from South­ern Lu­zon with 7,813. It was fol­lowed by Cen­tral Visayas and Western Visayas with 4,098 trav­el­ers.

The Mala­cañang has de­clared Oc­to­ber 31, Tues­day, a spe­cial non-work­ing day, and Novem­ber 1, Wed­nes­day, as spe­cial non-work­ing hol­i­day in ob­ser­vance of the All Saints’ Day.

Ports of­fi­cials said most of the trav­el­ers prob­a­bly filed a leave of ab­sence for Mon­day — Oc­to­ber 30, which is a reg­u­lar work­ing day — to ex­pe­ri­ence the very long week­end.
