Island to cut visitor numbers
Beach boozing and smoking will be banned when Boracay welcomes back a capped number of tourists after its six-month shutdown, authorities said on Wednesday. Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte ordered the resort shuttered to visitors in April, saying the island has become a “cesspool”. When hotel doors reopen on Oct 26, the island will crack down on drinking and smoking, while only 19,000 tourists will be allowed at any one time.
