After 2years of aspiring to reach the 1Million tourist arrival for Boracay, finally, it was realized.
A Korean national was the 1Millionth tourist arrival registered on the list of the Municipal Tourism Office (MTO).
Yuki Mau, who arrived at the Caticlan Jetty Port at 2:36pm, Friday, October 26, 2012, was the much anticipated 1millionth tourist for Boracay Island.
The milestone delighted Atty. Helen Catalbas, the Regional Director of the Department of Tourism (DOT).
According to the Regional Director, the 1Millionth tourist did not even include the more or less 2thousand passengers of the Caribbean Cruise “Legend of the Seas” which visited Boracay on Saturday, and that the feat was achieved 2 months before the year ends.
Catalbas also praised the officials of Malay and the Province of Aklan for the landmark achievement.
