Tourist arrival in Boracay last All Saints Day or Undas slightly declined compared last year 2013.
Record from Malay Municipal Tourism Office (MTour) on November 1, All Saints Day and November 2, All Souls' Day shows 3, 129 arrivals on November 1 with the local tourist arrival of 1, 587, foreign 1, 506 and 36 OFWs.
They have also recorded 1, 492 on November 2 for both local and foreign tourist and 72 OFW with a total of 3, 056.
Despite of this, they also recorded high numbers of tourist arrival the day before Undas with a total of 4, 111 in just one day which is dominated by the Filipinos.
Although the record was low compared last year, MTour stressed that the reason for this is because Undas fell on Saturday and Sunday, which is not a reason to have a long week end.
Meanwhile, the island of Boracay is yearly visited by tourists especially on the day of All Saints Day because of the different Halloween Party at the famous white beach area.
