As the Chinese New Year approaches, Boracay “fully booked”

Just a few more days to go before the Chinese New year, and Resorts and Hotels in Boracay are already fully booked.

It was learned from Department of Tourism or DOT-Boracay Officer-in-Charge, Tim Ticar that as early as February 6, tourists who have a reservation or had booked are already expected to arrive.

Many of them are to celebrate the Chinese New Year in the island, and so more tourists are expected to flood Boracay.

Aside from Chinese nationals, Koreans and Taiwanese are also going to celebrate the said festivity on the 10th of this month.

Ticar said he was able to say this since the relationship between China and the Philippines had turned to “good” from bad, which was caused by the issue in the West Philippine Sea.

China’s Travel Advisory against the Philippines had previously been lifted, giving them no reason not to visit the island and the country.

Moreover, Ticar added that some travel agencies communicated and informed him that they will be bringing in some 400 Chinese tourists in Boracay for the Chinese New Year.
