The Internet has given us the power to make better decisions with readily available information at our fingertips. You can compare and contrast Boracay vacation options without needing to call up airlines, hotels, and restaurants. You simply have to go online, browse on travel websites and blogs, and voila! You can assess companies and their offerings. But this convenience has its downside. Using the service of an Online Travel Agency (OTA) can be overwhelming. You get swamped with hundreds, or even thousands, of choices. Having options is good, but having way too many choices can be distressing. Consider direct booking in which you get in touch with a hotel without the OTA “middleman.” Aside from sparing yourself from clicking through pages for hours, you can enjoy discounts and freebies, among others.

There’s more to Boracay than White Beach. The 5-kilometer stretch of powdery white sand is obviously the most popular beach in the island. It is also the most developed and busiest beach with hundreds of resorts, hotels, restaurants, and clubs lined up along the coast. But did you know that there are other Boracay beaches that are just as beautiful and stunning?
Boracay is a popular vacation destination in the Philippines for both locals and foreigners. With Boracay Island constantly listed as one of the world’s best, a Boracay trip is on every avid traveler’s bucket list.
Foreigners outnumbered local tourists for the first time in 2015. Koreans were the top visitors, followed by the Chinese, Taiwanese, Malaysians, Americans, Australians, Singaporeans, Saudi Arabians, British, and Japanese. The spike in tourist arrivals from abroad was spurred by the increase in direct international flights, the addition of new activities and experiences offered in Boracay, and more cruise ships making stopovers on the island. Boracay’s attraction goes beyond just its turquoise waters, white sand beaches, and swinging nightlife.
So you're all set for your Boracay vacation. Make sure your sunscreen and wide-brimmed hat are packed with your beach wear. Do you have a first-aid kit? You should have emergency medicines and supplies ready wherever you go. You never know when you'll need a band-aid. Finally, check whether the pasalubong wish list from family and friends is complete (unless you're up for guilt trips when you come home). To avoid your mom complaining that you got the wrong item, jot down any specification such as preferred quality, store/brand, etc. You can also research on recommended shops that sell authentic souvenirs in Boracay. This can save you time and money when shopping for Boracay souvenirs especially if you have limited vacation time.
