Warm days that surrounded yesteryear turquoise body of body of water water, powdery white sand as well as your soul simply exposed to beautiful timeless sunsets.
A nail of today’s hits playing on the nights of Boracay. Beach bars scattered along the paths of Station 1 to Station 3. Swaying away to the beat nosotros walked happily, lungs filled amongst the scent of seafood, from i bar to about other beach club. Anywhere feels similar sky on globe (except that its overcrowded amongst tourists)
The intention for this Boracay trip was simple; To forget as well as ENJOY. There are no rules for this trip, no must-visit landmarks, no cultural engagement. Just for the offset time, pure entertainment.
THE NIGHTMARE OF ACTUALLY GETTING INTO BORACAY
The Journey from Cebu to Boracay was an exciting one. The flying was filled amongst beach-goers all cook for the crazy nights to come, the long ease nether the summertime sun. We felt immature inwards the flight. What made the journeying long (and exhausting) was that after y’all province at the Kalibo airport, y’all select to larn into a shuttle motorcoach that gets y’all to about arrival hall. After that, y’all select to pay to larn a ride to the jetty which is nigh one-half an hour. The jetty terminal is flooded amongst people all waiting, rushing, LOST. Then y’all select to become on a 15mins boat ride to Boracay Island. Once y’all become far inwards Boracay, y’all select to larn into about other taxi to drive upwardly to your hotel. H5N1 iii hours nightmare.
Sadly but predictably, the massages inwards Boracay sucks, also, its pricier than what y’all tin larn inwards Bali. The masseuses are noisy! Always chatting amongst each other no affair which massage house y’all become to! We had iii massages inwards iii different places as well as goodness, they can’t unopen up.
I am a foodie as well as e’er opened upwardly to trying something new. Though Philippines Cuisine is catching on, it’s nonetheless non every bit pop every bit other Asian cuisines. I personally don’t similar it at all. I was literally hungry the entire fourth dimension as well as was cook to settle for a loving cup noodle from 7-11. Most of their dishes are basic as well as tasteless (unless y’all honey sourness or soy sauce).
Boracay is in all likelihood the worst tourist trap inwards the Philippines. It is really pricey here, international cuisines especially. Most of the beach clubs require an entrance fee. Also, they don’t genuinely become large on haggling prices different most developing asian countries.
but everything else fades to nada i time y’all larn to consider the
SPECTACULAR DISPLAY OF SUNRISE AND SUNSET IN BORACAY
I select been to countless beaches, from Bali to the famous Cinque Terre, to Phuket, to Barcelona, Italy, and nada compares to Boracay! The sunsets hither are otherworldly as well as the sunrise is worth waking upwardly to. I experience theres something magical nigh sunsets as well as sunrises, it felt similar yesteryear doing so, you’re cleansing something inside you.
CLEANLINESS OF BORACAY BEACH
The beaches are PERFECTION. I am surprised yesteryear the cleanliness of the beach. Despite the 24hours beach parties, they somehow managed to keep such cleanliness. It likewise helps that no smoking is allowed except for designated areas.
& PARTY & PARTY
We came hither to political party as well as that’s what nosotros did every night! it wasn’t disappointing at all, nosotros all had a blast.
two nights inwards Cebu was simply squeamish for us. The metropolis of Cebu is really busy every bit compared to Boracay.
I felt similar Im inwards two different countries when inwards Cebu City as well as inwards Boracay. In Cebu, I consider alot of beggars as well as the air felt polluted. The traffic was insane hence nosotros prefer to larn a bike taxi to larn us around.
The highlight of this Cebu trip has definitely got to live swimming amongst the Whale Sharks.
I select mixed feelings nigh this experience.
SWIMMING WITH THE WHALE SHARKS
wow. H5N1 unopen run into as well as such a humbling experience swimming amongst these beautiful, majestic, gentle creatures. You volition live lay inwards a grouping of nigh 10 into a pocket-sized boat where they’ll convey y’all towards the centre of the enclosed expanse where they lulled the whale sharks. It didn’t sink inwards until much subsequently how large these creatures were. I recall seeing bubbles as well as displace inwards the water, as well as and hence mouths as well as and hence to a greater extent than movement. My conduct announced loudly ” ok larn inwards now!”
After that amazing experience, I genuinely felt guilty. I realise how many tourists were genuinely swimming amongst the whale sharks at once. And how the fisherman lulled the whale sharks amongst food. I know for a fact its definitely disrupting the natural nutrient bike of the whale sharks. Later, I read the whale sharks are forthwith spending upwardly to half dozen hours feeding inwards Oslob, losing out on about of the telephone commutation nutrients that they gain from foraging naturally. That existence said, I wont back upwardly such action as well as volition non live doing it again. I promise to live a responsible traveller as well as to educate y’all if you’re unaware of such practises.
Pictures of spectacular waterfalls inwards Cebu has flooded Instagram as well as has fuelled the wanderlust for me to come upwardly as well as consider for myself. It didn’t disappoint me at all! We managed to view the Tumalog Falls which was spectacular as well as thankfully non crowded, It is much less pop than the Kawasan Falls but our conduct said most locals prefer the Tumalog Falls because its beautiful
Let the pictures create the talking because the fusion nutrient institute inwards these famous cafes are delicious!
1. 10,000 roses cafe! Beautiful & definitely Instagram worthy!
2. The seafood house adjacent to 10,000 roses. Dine inwards yesteryear the footling hut overlooking the sea. Their fresh mango milk shiver is to choke for. I literally finished it inwards v minues.
3. H5N1 Korean fusion cafe at Cebu City
I enjoyed this opor-garai as well as glad that I’ve ticked the Philippines off my list. Im nonetheless searching for the adjacent destination that tin blew my heed away amongst their sunset similar how Boracay did!
