Before I came to Boracay I traveled in Thailand - I loved the small Island of Phi Phi and the area around Krabi. Than I was traveling a lot in the Philippines: The North of Luzon - Baguio, Sagada . Than I started Island hopping - with more than 7000 Islands in the Philippines there is a long list to choose from: I visited Negros, Cebu Island, Bohol, Camiguin Island, Guimaras, Tablas, Panay and so finally I found the paradise: Boracay Island.
Many people are talking now about " The BMW tropical beach handbook "
from Nick Hanna in particular in connection with Boracay Island, because the author said: " People often ask me which is the best beach in the world, and the replay is invariably Boracay." But this book was written in 1989 too. Nick Hanna said about Boracay also: " When I was here Boracay had no central electricity, no telephone link, no travel agency, no banks, and no proper exchange facilities. The lack of communication can only be considered a virtue. How long it will last, no one knows."
I had a hard time to get this Beach handbook. I could not find it in any book store, so I wrote a nice letter to the Public relation office of BMW in Munich.
Even they never heard about the book but to my surprise I got one of the last existing samples sent to me for free by BMW England, the place where the book was published. Times have changed - and to answer the question how long it will take: It took only a few years - now there is almost everything on Boracay. Not only one telephone link but three companies, travel agencies, five banks and many money exchange facilities. And of course: The world wide web is here too. But do you really need all of this if you are already in " Paradise" ?
- Pros:Still an island with many lovely places and friendly people
- Cons:Sometimes sad to see what happens to the " Paradise"
- In a nutshell:Don`t wait too long to visit the Island, time is running...
Very nice vacation apartment on a cliff overlooking White Beach. Very private, very quiet, very secured. Just steps... more travel advice
Ati Atihan is more than just a religious fiesta - it´s carnival, Maddi grass, food festival, beauty competition, it`s... more travel advice
