Boracay 2015


Just my first trip to Boracay, haha, please don't judge, at least there's always a first time and better late that never, right??? :-).  And yay, my expectation and experience was superb.

Thanks to APEC holidays and to my birthday leave that I had the chance to visit and experienced one of the beautiful islands in the Philippines.  Yes, it is indeed beautiful - talking about white sand, blue-green water, nice people, good food and night life.  Super thanks also to my friend/sis Caren who made me "kulit" that we should have a "birthday travel" since we have the same birth month.  So she arranged everything, the booking and all.  I think my only contribution to this travel was our hotel booking, hehe :-).  Take note, we were both 1st timers in Bora so we were clueless about what to do because what we had were just suggestions from friends.  But thank GOD we survived and we had a blast for 5 days in our lives.

And our Boracay adventure begins here.
Take a look at this paradise and please don't get "umay", pictures overload coming up in 3....2....1, hehe :-)

Important Notes
  • For easy and convenient travel, avail an airport transfer.  It costs P1,300 2-way from Kalibo Airport and includes bus, jet and muticab transfer.  In our case, Blue Veranda arranged everything.
  • For discounted Boracay tour activities, please contact Kuya Otoy - 09202619313.
  • For shopping, personal needs, eating out, souvenir and pasalubong needs, there are four available places in Boracay; 1) D' Mall and 2) D' Market - prices are higher compared to the other stores; 3) D' Talipapa and 4) D' Palengke - prices here are more affordable.
  • If you are a cowboy/cowgirl and is looking for an affordable hotel/hostel in Bora, there are lots of available in Station 2 and 3 but the downside is it's not near the beach front but it's okay, just enjoy Bora.
  • Explore and discover Boracay.  Have fun.
