Have to go here, Boracay!

Hello, we are students attending the Talk Academy. While we were studying hard, there was a holiday, and we checked the cheap airline ticket and went to Boracay as a trip. It is good to study hard, but being able to take such a good trip is also an advantage of the Philippine Academy. From now on, let’s start with our trip.

On the first day, we took the Genesis bus to Clark, which leaves at 6:15 a.m. Because it couldn’t make a reservation, we arrived about 30 minutes early and boarded safely. The price was 420 pesos, so I think it is cheap. If you have a lot of people, it’s also a good idea to use a van. The price of the van to Clark is 5,000 pesos one-way. It takes about five hours by bus, but if you use the van, you can get there in three hours.

After arriving at Clark Airport safely, we ate at a restaurant in front of the airport. We ate very delicious because it was meal after riding a bus for a long time. You have to pay airport tax at the airport. We paid 150 pesos per person because it was a domestic flight of the Philippines. We went to Caticlan Airport, which takes about an hour. When we got off at the airport, there were many merchants who said they’re going to take us to Boracay, but we just passed by and went to the port in a tricycle that was 50 pesos per person. We paid 125 pesos per person for shipping in the port, including environmental taxes.

Finally, we arrived in Boracay and moved to the hotel using the tricycle again. We stayed at the hostel on the first and second days, and we were so happy to get free pick-up service to D mall, the main street. I unpacked and left for D mall, and went shopping while eating the famous mango ice cream. I bought the snorkeling equipment for 500 pesos, but when I was swimming, my glasses were filled with water as my thinking. I recommend that you buy it from Korea. There were many restaurants and bars on the beach, and we went into a Chinese restaurant and we went back to the hostel after eating food and drinking beer simply. It was a little late to go back, so we used a motorcycle, and we paid 50 pesos per person.

On the second morning, we enjoyed surfing on the beach. The waves were so strong that we couldn’t enjoy them properly, but we were pleasant. When the waves are strong, I recommend that beginners avoid surfing. After that, we did a little henna. We were able to make it as cheap as 300 pesos per person. And then we went back to the hostel, and we took a shower, and then we moved back to the main street around D mall. We went to the Galaxy club which is famous in Boracay and drank on the VIP table. There weren’t many people there, maybe because of the rainy season, or because it was false rumors, so we were a little disappointed and moved to another place. There was a Korean karaoke near D mall, which was a very cool place, but soju was very expensive with 300 pesos per bottle. We sang joyfully, and went back to the hostel.

We moved to the resort on the last day. There was a swimming pool, and the room was very clean. We unpacked and went scuba diving. When we first heard the explanation, we were a little disappointed that we were going to do only half an hour into the water, but after that, we felt that 30 minutes was a very reasonable time. We were exhausted quickly, and it was harder than we thought. But we enjoyed scuba diving very much, and we went back to the resort swimming pool and swam. For your information, scuba diving was 1,800 pesos per person. It was cheap, but I think there is another famous scuba diving place. On the last evening, we went to a bar near the beach, and it was very hot because there was no air conditioner, so we went straight to the Korean karaoke. We had a good drink, went back to the resort and drank a little more, then checked out early in the morning and went back to the airport. It takes about an hour from Main Street to the airport, so be careful not to be late. We used a van to get back to Baguio, but it was definitely faster than the bus. Three nights and four days have passed in the Boracay, It was a beautiful memory. If you come to the Talk Academy, I recommend you to plan a trip like this.
