A female tourist from Taiwan was holidaying in Boracay beach in Philiphines. She was wearing a string bikini while spending time with her boyfriend. The hotel in which they were staying informed them that her outfit was 'inappropriate'. She said her string bikini was a 'form of art.' She was later fined PHP2, 500 (40 pounds) for erotic photographs, even though there are no laws that prohibits wearing 'indecent' cloths.
