Most Beautiful Beach in the World (Boracay, Philippines Trip 2014, Day 1)

Featured

Two years ago, this time, I was holidaying at Boracay, known to have the most beautiful beach and sunset in the world.

Although there is a direct flight flying from Singapore to Boracay from SilkAir but it just so happened that it was not available on the day we were flying. So, we flew by SilkAir from Singapore to Cebu and transited to Kalibo.

From Kalibo, we took a taxi to Tabun Caticlan Jetty Point. There are cheaper vans and buses available. As we were too excited and blur, we just hopped into the taxi available. 😛 However, some of you may really prefer taxis as the trip is a long one, stretching for about 1.5 hours to 2 hours!

The boat ride from Tabu Caticlan Jetty Point to Boracay is just about 10 to 15 minutes. We paid 30 peso for the boat ride, 75 peso for the environmental fee, and a 100 peso for the terminal fee. Here’s how a boat(Bangka) looks like.

We booked our accommodation through Airbnb, and the caretaker came to the jetty to fetch us. Sorry, I can’t really remember the name of the place we stayed (not that fantastic in my opinion) but it is on the side of the Bulabog Beach.

After we have settled down, we walked down the slope from our accommodation to the road along Bulabog Beach to take a tricycle to D’mall where most of the tourists shop for souvenirs and have their meals. We walked along White Beach and managed to catch the sunset.

We did a bit of shopping and ate at Ole Restaurant. Ole Restaurant is a Spanish restaurant that is quite popular with the tourists. As we were pretty tired from the travelling, we went back to our accommodation to retire early on the first night.

Getaway from the Haze: Cebu, Philippines Trip 2013

June last year was a very bad month with the serious haze problem. However, my friends and I were lucky to have plan a trip to Cebu and we didn’t experience the PSI 300 ordeal.

Our Cebu trip was a rest and relax trip. We didn’t really move around much but were bumming in the nice resort that we were staying in.

DAY ONE

We checked into our hotel and were being upgraded from 2 standard rooms to a suite. We spent the day bumming in the resort and enjoying our complimentary afternoon tea before heading out to the city to enjoy grilled food at AA BBQ.
