Boracay, travel, news, weather, things to do

It’s full of good news this week for Boracay visitors. Firstly, it’s because the weather is nice! You can finally enjoy the beach and get a tan. There will also be lesser gas-powered tricycles on the soon which means cleaner air. Local authorities have also assured peace and order on the island. Speaking of order, more Chinese individuals are also expected to follow island rules now as their embassy assures cooperation with the local government. For more details, read on!

Weather: Pleasant with some cloudy days too

The weather is expected to be nice throughout the week [1]. Most days, especially at the beginning of the week will be sunny. However on some days, stray morning showers can still be experienced. With this kind of weather, it’s the perfect time to finally get a tan. But since beach beds are already prohibited along the beach so guests have to either lay on the sand or bring their own mats or towels while sunbathing. Joining some water sports activities can also give you some color. Temperatures for the week will be between 25°C to 29°C.

Traffic News: No more gas-powered tricycles in Boracay soon

No more diesel-powered tricycles will be allowed to operate on the streets of Boracay starting in January of next year [2]. The removal of tricycles is already ongoing following an order from the mayor of the town of Malay. The phase-out is part of the measures to ensure long-term protection of the island. The more than 400 tricycles on the island will be replaced with electric tricycles. At present, there are already more than 200 e-trikes operating in Boracay. There are also some units of e-jeeps plying on the island. Meanwhile, vehicles owned by resorts are also required to use cleaner fuel alternatives.

Travel Updates

CCTVs around the island placed

New technology is now being used by the local police on the island to ensure its peace and order [3]. Through the Secured, Mobile, Artificial Intelligence-Driven, Real-Time, Technology or SMART Policing program of the Philippine National Police, a total of 17 closed-circuit televisions are now operating on the island. They are used to keep an eye on the island and to prevent crimes. The cameras are also used to monitor violators of the island’s environmental policies. The CCTVs are scattered in various locations while monitoring is done at the police station in Station 2. Aside from the CCTVs under the program, the LGU also installed other cameras to augment.

Boracay to have more disciplined Chinese tourists

More disciplined Chinese tourists may now be expected in Boracay [4]. This is after the Chinese Embassy expressed their cooperation with the Local Government Unit of Malay. The Chinese embassy pledged to help in disseminating information about the policies and guidelines on the island to avoid violations from their nationals as well. During their visit, the Chinese embassy also donated six all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) to be used in manning the beachfront.
