They Paved Paradise and Put up a Beach Resort

It's been reported a few weeks ago, Banyan Tree is building a resort in Coron's Isla Diwaran. While it's good news that companies are developing the tourist spots here in the Philippines, I hope that Coron won't end up like Boracay - overran by tourists beyond its carrying capacity. Bora used to be a paradise (White Beach is still the prettiest beach I've seen), but you know it's going downhill when you see establishments featuring tranny shows sprouting all over the place, and touts who pester the visitors to buy pirated DVDs are as common as white sand on its beaches.
