Hi guys, today I'm going to visit Boracay Island which located not too far from Manila. Boracay Island is one of must visit island in Philippines, so I'm starting my journey from Manila Airport to Caticlan at 08.35 am by using Cebu Pacific Air. This trip take 1,5 hours and during this trip, you'll see the beauty of islands with blue ocean.
Arriving there, I go to the port, Caticlan Jetty Port, for take boat to the Boracay. The port is not too far from the airport, only 15 minutes of walk. Or you can take tricycle with fare PHP 50. Arriving at Cagban Jetty Port, you can take tricycle again or use shuttle from your hotel.
Boracay is a little heaven in Philippines. It not big as Bali, but has amazing beaches, delicious restaurants and night life. This island is devided into three part or station, if you love living in the crowd, you can stay at station 2 where become the center of this island. I choose to stay in station 1 for make me easier to find some food or snacks and the hotel is cheaper than station 2. It's afternoon already and I directly go to hotel for check in. Anyway, you can find many kind of resort in this station with rate starting from PHP 3600.
Because it's afternoon already, I have nothing to do, so I just enjoy the beach while waiting the sunset. I walk around at the beach side and try some snacks and fresh juice at Jonah's Fruit Shake & Snack Bar. Actually, there's so much things to do in this island, but I'm gonna saving my energy for doing all of that things tomorrow :)

For you who can't speak Tagalog, Philippines people use English as their daily language, so you don't have to worry. On the first time visit this island, better you use shuttle from your hotel to pick you up from the port. This island is not too big, so it's not too far for go to the tourism places. Bring swimsuit, sunglasses, beach hat, slippers and sunscreen.
