WATCH: '50% off' for some Boracay businesses on eve of closure

AKLAN, Philippines – A day before the top tourist destination Boracay Island was closed off from tourists, businesses gave discounted prices for goods and services.

Some restaurants offered as low as 50% off on their menu, just so they could use up their remaining supplies.

Others put up a "closing sale" as the island resort will be closed down in the next 6 months. (READ: Businesses brace for Boracay closure)
