Photos of Taiwanese women tourists circulated on social media
Global Network reported recently that a Taiwanese female tourist in China was fined 2500 pesos (about 343 yuan) for wearing a bikini on Long Beach Island in the Philippines. A local policeman said the bikini was actually just a string.
According to the Straits Times of Singapore, the female tourist appeared on Long Beach Island wearing a white two-piece bikini on the 9th and a similar red bikini the next day. Residents and tourists took photos and uploaded them to social media.

The photos were then circulated in the social media and attracted the attention of the authorities on Long Beach Island, which asked the islands police to look for the visitor.
Local police tracked down the tourist and took him, his boyfriend and a hotel representative to the police station on the 10th. Police Bailong said the woman was wearing actually just a rope.
The female tourist reportedly wore a skirt when she went to the police station. She thought her bikini was OK.
Peron also said the visitor thought it was an expression, a way to feel comfortable with his body. She also told the police that it was the clothes she used to wear when she was in Taiwan.
The residents of Long Beach Island expressed different opinions on this issue in the social media, but many people, including foreigners, thought that bikini was indecent.
Since the Philippine authorities could not find a law prohibiting the wearing of exposed swimsuits, the tourist was issued a ticket and fined under a law prohibiting the taking and display of indecent photographs.
According to Peron, the tourists were scheduled to return to Taiwan on Friday (11), but they had to pay a fine first.
