Some of you may know I flew to Boracay last month if you follow my FB and Insta. Boracay is a small island in Philippines, it's still quite new to everyone but I think it has rapidly become the top tourist draw in Philippines. I'm so excited when Airasia announced that they've added a new island paradise destination, so now getting to this beautiful island from Malaysia is as easy as one-two-three. Yayyy!
The airasia flights will be direct from Kuala Lumpur to Kalibo airport. We reached the airport around 2pm and we were stuck in the Kalibo airport for almost 2 hours while waiting their staff check our passports. (because they only provided two counters) So good luck to you! As you step out from the airport, you will spot many tour operators offer various packages consisting of bus or van to Caticlan Jetty and ferry to the island. It took us another 2 hours bus transfer to the jetty and 15 mins of ferry's ride away to the island. And yeah, is like finally we've reached our destination.
We stayed at Henann Garden Resort for 3 nights, and everything was great. The only point that they need to be improve is the WIFI. They only offering the free wifi in the lobby area and even there's not working very well. =( Well, I'll share more about our hotel in the upcoming post.
So after breakfast, we decided to go to the beach for a stroll. Our hotel can access to the beach through a short corridor. Only 3-5 mins a short walk to the beach.
Blue skies with perfect white clouds.
This place reallyyyyyy stole my heart.
Boracay is seperated into three districts, Station 1,2 and 3. Most of the luxurious hotels are located in Station 1, such a perfect place for relaxation. And the station 2 is the main shopping and dining center of Boracay Island. If you want to avoid crowd, you can choose station 3, the sleepiest part of the beach.
Headed to the diving site in the afternoon. I did have diving experience in Bali before, but this is my very first time helmet diving experience. Our guide started with a small briefing, hand signals and what to do underwater. It's because we can't talk once immersed underwater. The basic hand signals like go up and down, okay or not okay.
The helmet itself is 25 kilos above, but it will gets lighter as we move down. So, not to worry about the weight. Just have to breath normally because the water will not get into our helmet. Our packages which is also included a DVD with video and pictures. Remember to smile while underwater, the divers will help you take tons of photos and video.
Time for paraw sailing to catch the sunset!!!
Sailing a paraw at sunset is a popular tourist activity, is a MUST DO activity in Boracay.
It's actually a typical Philippino double outrigger sailboat. And passengers will sit on the outriggers. I know it look a bit scary but trust me this's really fun. It's absolutely indescribable experience.
Such a good way to relax and enjoy the warm evening ocean breeze.
I just couldn't stop my finger to press the 'photo' button, this is because our captain is just too handsome. Well, actually Tracy requested for it (the one who flashing the V sign). LOL
How I wish I could freeze time and live in this moment forever.
Enjoying our last hour of sun! Thank you so much for reading, I hope you enjoyed it.
