'Preserve Islas de Gigantes'
MetadataShow full item record
To preserve the environment of the Gigantes group of islands, a fledgling tourism destination in the municipality of Carles in northern Iloilo, tourism businesses there were told close shop temporarily and do some cleanup. Tourism regional director Helen Catalbas termed it "self-closure." "Mga three to four months lang," sad Catalbas during yesterday's Northern Iloilo Cruise TOurism Ocular Inspection and Stakeholders Dialouge at the provincial capitol. A “preventive measure”, Catalbas said the temporary closure would give stakeholders time to prepare the islands – remove garbage and fix or improve facilities, among others – for the deluge of tourists.
