Boracay Shutdown and its consequences

Posted by filed under Asia, Environment, Mass tourism.

Boracay suffered from mass tourism in the recent years. The beach paradise became overcrowded, environment was polluted and destroyed. The big money was too tempting. Now president Duterte did what only an autocrat can do: he shut down the complete island for six months due to clean up, improve infrastructure and demolish illegal buildings and businesses. A radical step. Is that the way to counter the consequences of mass tourism?
