ICYMI: There’s a proposed ordinance in Palawan to ban tourists from wearing thongs, T-backs, and G-strings on their beaches and other public places.
In a report by Palawan News, the regulation only discourages wearing of the prohibited clothing when travellers are in full view of the public. The penalty for violators ranges from P1,000 to P3,000.
Palawan Provincial Board Member Cherry Pie Acosta, who authored the ordinance, said that people may still wear thongs, T-backs, and G-strings while swimming but they should cover their bodies when out of the water.
“It’s not totally ipinagbabawal. Pagkatapos (maligo) ay takpan basta they are not exposing the whole body. Aminin man natin o hindi karamihan naman sa atin ay mga konserbatibo pa rin, kahit gaano kaganda ang ating katawan ay may tamang papanamit pa rin,” Acosta said in the interview.
If implemented, the ordinance will cover the whole of Palawan and will apply to all tourists both local and foreign, and even residents.
If you ask us, the strict dress code might affect Palawan’s tourism. Tourists frequent the place to rest, see the sights, and take a break from the demanding city. The ordinance may turn off travellers who might feel like they are being controlled while on vacay.
