Boracay Island is a tiny dog-bone shaped island located under an hour's flight from Manila with a Dash-8 aircraft (yep, they still use aircraft with propellers in some parts of the world!). The island houses a wonderful white sand beach facing west to the Sulu Sea. The eastern side - Bulabog Beach - faces the Sibuyan Sea. Voted by Conde Nast and many other travel magazines as having one of the best sunsets in the world, Boracay is a gem (though, not exactly hidden now!).
The island is a perfect getaway for families, couples on a honeymoon or those who want to escape the hustle & bustle of the city life. Getting to the island can be a bit of a hassle (Manila Airport is an experience!) but once you're there, it is a world away from it all. It is not exactly a backpackers destination, simply because it is expensive and caters for more of a middle-class crowd, and thankfully it doesn't attract any sleazy/seedy/desperado types of people that you may get in places such as Thailand or other parts of the Philippines. Boracay is definitely worth a visit. Put it on your bucket list. The BEST places to stay at, from my experience, are either the Shangri-La Boracay resort or Sundown Studios Boracay. Check them out.

The NAVJOT-SINGH.COM web blog is separate to this web site....Click blog, which may
not be visible in some
countries due to local
so in those cases this
weblog may be read. The weblog also includes some of my press trip reports- most of which are not published on the official blog because of copyright issues. The weblog also contains articles that may be associated directly with a PR trip for a country, airline or a hotel. These are PR reviews done in relations with various companies.
If you are an investor or a trend watcher then you may find this website useful as investing has a lot to do with personal observations and finding the ideal trend or next big thing. The average human on the street frequently knows far more about the state of the economy than politicians, university professors, subject matter experts, and financial analysts who seldom travel, or if they do so, only from one hotel to another hotel! The pulse and vibrancy of an economy is nowhere more visible than on a country's streets.
