Boracy is a small island in the Philippines located approximately 315 km south of Manila and 2 km off the northwest tip of Panay Island in Western Visavas region of the Philippines.
Boracay Island and its beaches have received awards from numerous travel publications and agencies.
Apart from its white sand beaches, Boracay is also famous for being one of the world's top destinations of relaxation, tranquility and nightlife.
In 2012, Boracay was awarded as the best island in the world from the international travel magazine.

Let's get started with transportation to go over Boracay

There are few airlines depart from Singapore to Boracay (nearest airport - Kalibo) 
which are Silkair, Tigerair, Airasia
It takes about 3 hours and 40 minutes to reach Kalibo, Philipines
We bought our tickets 6 months prior to departure dates, we got it about SGD 250.00 for return flight.
We depart about 11.30am
After 3 hours and 40 minutes we finally reach Kalibo

After clear imgration, we moved out of the airport to look for the travel agency that offered all in one transfer from Kalibo Airport to our Hotel at Boracay
We pre-booked our transfer through Asiatravel
