The Travel Diary: Things to Do in Boracay
A tropical paradise that never sleeps

Metaphorically speaking, this island has been sleeping for centuries until a German writer published a book about the Philippines in 1978. Describing Boracay history and the beautiful island in details, the island is now embellished with activities and luxurious hotels already available for rich travellers.


What to do

You can either lay back and appreciate the beauty of this tropical paradise on pure white sand or stay awake day and night to fulfil the rush you will surely have. Try all the activities Boracay has to offer. Start your day by getting a henna tattoo from the natives. For some sea and wind adventures, there's kite-boarding, fun boarding, surfing, and diving. Go home boating while watching the sunset and dock again to the island where there are masseurs to help you relax after a tiring but awesome day.

At night, you will surely enjoy the Mecca of bars, pubs, and discos along the beach. You are bound to meet new friends as you enjoy in any of these cozy places with touches of different cultural themes. Sometimes, there are also concerts and fashion shows hosted by a variety of companies of the national media.


Where to stay

Since parties and concerts used to happen along the beach, it is advisable if you grab the luxurious offering of the Shangri-La’s Boracay Resort and Spa, which is situated on a lush hillside of the island. A stay there would ensure that you get sufficient rest, minus all the noise from the on-going parties at night. Aside from these, it is complete with facilities and luxuries from transportation, business, and relaxation.


Where to shop

All of the shopping malls, such as D’Mall Shopping Center, Stables Boutique and Plazoleta Shopping Plaza, are situated within close range to each other and near the beach as well. What you'd expect to find here? Beach wears, camera equipment, souvenirs, and locally-made lamps, clothes, bags, and accessories.


Where to eat

Talking about great food, hospitality, cool music offerings, and great modern beach architecture, Epic Boracay is there for you. They provide an extensive range of palatable cuisines through the World Grill Concept, while you sit back and relax.

By night, the club transforms into one of the nicest party and concert scenes in the area. From 10pm, a DJ from Manila will start the party scene until the wee hours of the morning with heart-pounding rhythm and blues, hip-hop, and house music.

    China faces a dilemma in Ayungin Shoal and other contested areas. If it waits for the ITLOS—which may decide against it—it would have tacitly bound itself to UNCLOS and risk a rogue state reputation if it asserts its claim in the South China Sea. If its militarily acts now, it may face international isolation. …
