    "Sand castle making will be regulated". I'll make sure my children bring their triple-stamped application forms to the beach!

    Is there a new security force proposed to make sure tourists and hosts don't break any of these rules? Or will they be honoured more in the breach than in the observance?

    I am sure the police will be strict to start with at least.

    It could be worse in this part of the world... but only if it was Cambodia, North Korea or Myanmar

    https://www.rappler.com/nation/19656...x-2017-ranking
    MANILA, Philippines (UPDATED) – The Philippines scored and ranked lower in the 2017 report of the Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI) of Transparency International (TI) compared to the previous two years.

    The anti-corruption watchdog also said that majority of countries around the world are "moving too slowly" in their efforts to fight corruption.

    Released on Wednesday, February 21, the CPI 2017 results showed that the Philippines got a score of 34. It was down from 35 in the 2015 and 2016 reports.
    The country also ranked lower in 2017, placing 111th among 180 countries surveyed. The Philippines placed 101st out of 176 nations in 2016, and 95th of 168 in 2015.

    What has this old report got to do with Boracay? Take it to the Duterte thread.

    OK folks this thread is done as far as I am concerned. Let the children play.
