Boracay, Philippines

Anniversary 2015. Celebration of Togetherness.

Boracay was not included in our 2015 Travel List because it’s expensive to get there coming from Singapore. It just so happened that we were on 2 months holiday in the Philippines so we seized the opportunity to go the Best Beach in the World through domestic flight.

Lot of people told us not to go to Boracay as it’s too crowded, commercialised, not as good as the last time etc. Feedbacks are good as reference but of course it always depends on individual’s experience.

We have 2 other friends who traveled with us , Harot and Jaja, whom we met in the airport.

NAIA Terminal 3

Transport: Cebu Pacific Air from Manila to Kalibo. We availed CebPac offer of Southwest’s Travel Agency of one-way land package transfer worth Php600 inclusive of bus transfer from Kalibo to Caticlan, private ferry transfer from Caticlan to Boracay Island and van transfer from Boracay port to Crown Regency Hotel, also inclusive of taxes and other fees.  It’s worth it! We should’ve purchased round trip because Southwest’s price costs Php650 (not so much, but still Php50 difference lol).

Accommodation: Crown Regency Resort and Convention Center. We have a friend who’s working in Crown’s sister company, we were lucky and thankful that our friend managed to get 50% discount for our 4D/3N stay. Yay! Crown Regency is located in Station 2, not beach front though. But it’s closed to the beach, like 5 minutes walk only.

Crown Regency Station 2

Weather: November is one of the best month to visit this place. Lesser crowd, no algae in the water but risky because there maybe typhoon. During our stay, it only drizzled a bit then its sunny all throughout.

Activities: Prior our trip, we initially planned going to Puka Beach and have a dive in Ariel’s Point. But everything changed when we landed and settled in Boracay. Our actual activities: Nothing. No activities needed. We just walked along the shore, stared at the calm, blue, crystal clear water, played with the finest sand in the world and people watching.

Just chillin’

Foodies: As always, food is always cheaper in the Philippines. We had seafood buffet for 2 consecutive nights, each costs around Php300 per head.

Missed shisha!

All around Boracay:

In my own experience, Boracay exceeded my expectations! It’s a place that I would never get tired to visit if I’ll have a chance, over and over and over again (if there’s an airfare sale, lol)!
