Jollibee has tried more than once in the past to get into Boracay but did not succeed. This has changed now obviously and has for awhile with joints like Starbucks etc. From a local perspective this really s@cks and is further evidence of the demise of the island. Some see it differently, they welcome it as progress which can be a dirty word, depending on who defines it.

For me, I really do NOT see or understand (different topic) how Boracay can still be considered a top beach in the Philippines, not to mention Asia when there are so many nicer places unless the rule of thumb is beach + commercialized activities. In that case, Boracay will never lose the title as the most commercialized beach in the Philippines

This is a very debatable topic.

Most foreigners living here are pretty sad about this. The majority of locals don't much care unless they are restaurant owners. It's a real shame. Mouse, why do you want it? It's crap food, made with mechanically recovered meat. It will harm local businesses and it looks cheap and tacky.

sirenna,

I actually sad about this however I foresee this coming.

In this world, money talks.

As I always know, "change is the only constant".

Now I only hope that these undesirable change is restricted to Station 2 and not spillover to Station 3.

I bet now the beach volunteers have to puck up McDonald's food wrapper. :(

By the way, since McDonald's manage to gain a foothold in Boracay, as the largest fast food chain, Jollibee will not sit and do nothing.

I believe they will find ways to setup a store there.
