When it comes to pristine beaches, the Philippines has always been a top choice for tourists. Aside from being one of the budget-friendly destinations, it is also known for its hospitable people everywhere.
One of the top locations of every beach lover is the island of Boracay. The island resort ranked seventh in the 2017 Travelers’ Choice Award among Asia’s Top 10 islands by TripAdvisor. Meanwhile, Travel+Leisure magazine placed it fourth on the ‘The World’s Friendliest Islands’ of 2016.

It is no surprise then that both local and foreign tourists flock to this tiny island for holidays and long weekends. The annual beach party held last May 1 dubbed as ‘Laboracay’ (a portmanteau of the words “Labor Day” and “Boracay”) attracted numerous visitors. Hotels and resorts were all fully-booked.
Unfortunately, some foreign tourists gearing up for the grandest beach party were left with a horrific experience rather than a memorable one.

According to a recent Facebook post, some tourists fell victim to theft after unknowingly leaving their belongings on the beach.

The person who uploaded the pictures wrote on the post how she found the foreign tourists crying while other people just passed them by. When she approached them, she learned that their iPhone, cash and cards were missing.

Calling the attention of the Provincial Government of Aklan, the Municipal Government of Malay, the Police and DOT authorities to urgently look into and conduct in-depth investigation why this most serious incident that could make or unmake the tourism industry in the country happened or may again happened.

This i s a wake-up for the Local Government as well as the Tourism authorities to exercise their mandated duties in protecting the visitors/tourists in their jurisdictions....
