There will be no big celebration for the reopening of Boracay on October 26. "It will not be high profile. Rehabilitation is a work in progress," explained Helen Catalbas, Department of Tourism (DOT) regional director for Western Visayas. The announcement came amid the doubts among businesses and other stakeholders that the country's premier beach destination, which was closed to tourist for six months, is ready to open its doors again.
