Boracay, the country’s major tourist destination, will have its soft opening next week. Boracay was closed last April to give way to the government program that would address the sewage and overcrowding problems that beset the island for so many years.
The Philippine resort island is located in Malay, Aklan.
Environment and tourism officials vowed to implement new rules and regulations for the visitors to observe while staying in the island.
