Travel Date: December 2000 – January 2001

Boracay is a tropical island on the northwestern tip of Panay island in the Western Visayas region of the Philippines. Boracay island has three barangays namely Manoc-Manoc, Balabag, and Yapak. Boracay island is part of the municipality of Malay in the province of Aklan, one of the provinces comprising Panay island.

Boracay island has been considered as one of the best tropical beaches in the world by the BMW Tropical Beach Handbook authored by Nick Hanna and published in 1989. In 1990, I did my practicum at the Lorenzo Resorts in Boracay island. From then on, I would go to Boracay at least once a year. In 2007, Boracay island was voted as one of the most popular beaches and one of the world’s best beaches, this time by Yahoo! Travel.

Boracay island is quite famous and a very popular tourist destination in the Philippines because of its seven kilometer powdery white sand beach which never really gets so hot, and its sometimes azure blue and emerald green crystal clear salt water.
