Boracay Bookings of Chinese Nationals, Cancelled

Boracay Foundation Incorporated (BFI) President Dionesio 'Jony' Salme confirmed that there are resorts in the island whose bookings with Chinese tourists had been cancelled.

In fact, some guests in their own resort had already withdrawn last week with the reason concerning the security of the tourists as the tension between Philippines and China over Panatag or Scarborough Shoal continues.

Aside from this, according to the information gathered from Boracay Regency, one of the biggest resort in the island, on Thursday some of the Chinese nationals also cancelled their online bookings that was supposedly scheduled on the up-coming days.

As noted from Ms. Athena Dorin of Boracay Regency, according to the Travel Agencies that they've confer with, these Chinese would also want to push through with their travel to the island, however the Chinese Government refused to allow them resulting to the cancelations of bookings.

But in spite of this it has been learned that not all who had booked backed out.

Meanwhile, based on their observation with the Chinese guests on the island, it appears that there is nothing to be worried about, as a matter of fact their stay in Boracay was described as 'normal'.

Moreover, currently there are no reports being noted that there are guests who packed up because of fear or concern over the projected rally against China's government.
