    Thank good some authorities have the courage to do this. It is worrying, though, that the local folk suffer financially.

    When I went to Thailand 3 yrs ago, we went here on the only sleep aboard boat they allowed at the time in the bay. What made it really special was swimming with the bioluminescent algae. Truly magical! As special as this place is, they needed to close this down. The special and beautiful factor was eroding away due to how many tourists came every day. I am glad the government of Thailand is taking this seriously.

    Tourism causes most of the issues in the world today. It simply cannot handle the numbers that will continue to grow.

    More places in the world need to follow suit. Keep us out, let it heal, and never let us back in. We literally destroy everything we touch. Such terrible creatures we are!

    Maybe we should do this to lots of other places in the world that are suffering because of man's need for gratification. If we don't look after the earth we won't have anything to pass on to our children and grandchildren. Being an oldie I can see the changes that have occurred over time and it is not good.

    Boracay was only closed for 6 months and it has made progress. Perhaps a little more time would even be greater. The previous administration here said IT COULD NOT BE DONE. Idiots. So, go for it! Then strictly implement environmental laws to protect it.

    Locally, direct environmental impacts of filming may disturb wildlife and habitats, through sound and light pollution, trampling vegetation, constructing sets and increasing waste generation. Film production impacts are typically considered and mitigated against through permitting processes.Jun 17, 2015

    Filming scenes for a movie is bad for the environment too so dont glorify it

    At this point in existence, I feel like we humans need to work more on our respect for Mother Nature and less on our instant gratification and selfies.
