MetadataShow full item record
After Boracay, the government has launched a rehabilitation program for another top tourist destination, the resort town of El Nido in Palawan. The rehabilitation starts with the shutdown of 22 tourism-oriented establishments found violating various environmental laws, including being built too close to the sea, Tourism Secretary Bernadette Romulo-Puyat said yesterday. Unlike in Boracay, however, there will be no total shutdown of El Nido, where several of the high-end resorts of Palawan are located.
