Ten Australian journalists visited the island of Boracay not to cover flood but to promote the island in their nation.
According to DOT Boracay Officer in Charge, Tim Ticar, the ten Australian journalists arrived yesterday afternoon which is said to be one of the DOT’s partners in tourism development and also considered of having a high number of tourists who visited the island.
“DOT is trying to build linkages with other agencies in different countries to step up Boracay as one of the premiere beach destination in the world.” He said.
Meanwhile, Ticar also added that they are thankful for not experiencing heavy rains that causes flood in some areas.
Occasional monsoon rains (habagat) intensified by tropical storm ‘Florita’ caused flooding in low-lying areas in central Boracay and may have serious effects on tourism on the country’s premier destination.
At the same time, DOT gave credit to those who supported their programs as well as encouraging the public and foreign tourists to follow the rules imposed by the government for the benefit of all especially Boracay.
DOT Boracay is also hoping for an immediate solution with regards to the issue of flooding on the island.
