According to the state-run Philippines News Agency (PNA), the 26-year-old woman, who was visiting Boracay with her boyfriend, was wearing a string bikini that was considered to be so revealing that hotel staff warned her not to leave wearing it. Boracay Inter-Agency Management and Rehabilitation Group chief Natividad Bernardino told PNA that the couple responded that the outfit "was a form of art," and quite ordinary where they are from.

The Philippines, however, have different cultural norms, and the outfit reportedly went viral when concerned local residents uploaded pictures of it to social media.

Philippines lifts threat to shut down second top resort

Philippines lifts threat to shut down second top resort A threat to close a second world-famous but pollution-threatened beach in the Philippines was averted Thursday, drawing a sigh of relief from the local beleaguered tourism industry.
