Boracay slated to reopen soon

Aklan (UCAN): An Ati-Atihan, a festival in honour of the Child Jesus traditionally held every third Sunday of January, will be celebrated to mark the reopening of Boracay Island, the Philippines, in honour of the island’s patron, the Santo Niño.
 
The island, known for its turquoise waters and powdery white sand, is ranked as one of the top tourist destinations in the world, but was abruptly closed down in April by the president, Rodrigo Duterte, to facilitate a clean up. It is slated to reopen to tourists on October 26.
