Boracay rehabilitation: restoring paradise
MetadataShow full item record
The Philippines is a country abundant in natural resources, boasting of famous tourist spots known the world over. But as tourism grew, so did the demands and stress on the tourist spots, many of which couldn't handle the weight of the pressure, leading it into ruin instead of prosperity. One such place is the famous Boracay Island. Boracay’s popularity attracted not only tourists but bad business practices, as well. The island’s natural beauty suffered, forcing the government and President Rodrigo Duterte to intervene.
