Boracay Island Philippines


Finally after six months of waiting I made a touchdown to Iloilo and Boracay Island. Booked a flight from Davao City to Iloilo City last February 2011 under 25peso Fare promo of Cebu Pacific. Got the cheapest deal so far for 250 pesos back and forth. 
Travel plan was to have a taste of the famous Boracay Island for 2 days from Iloilo. So basically I was not able to roam around Iloilo.

Touchdown:

Almost 5 hours land travel from Iloilo Airport to Caticlan.
10 – 15 minutes ferryboat ride from Caticlan Port to Boracay Island
