The Malay Tourism Office (MTOur) appealed for support from establishment owners.
The appeal is related to the suggested unified rates on Sea and Water Sport Activities in the Island of Boracay.
According to LGU Malay Chief Tourism Operations Officer, Felix De los Santos Jr., it would be advisable that establishments coordinate with the Municipal Tourism Office so that their guests would be given information and warning about illegal commissioners.
The information to be given to tourists will be on the standard operations of Sea and Water Sport Activities in Boracay.
Aside from this, the aim of the unified rates is for tourists not to fall victim to illegal commissioners.
On Monday, January 27, three (3) Korean students were reported to have been robbed by an illegal tour guide in the island.
Illegal tour coordinators and commissioners in the island are said to have been a long time problem of the local government and Department of Tourism (DOT).
Because of the matter, different programs are currently being implemented to put an end to incidents where tourists fall victim to such kind of illegal activity.
