Now this is good news!!!BORACAY is named the 4th Best Island in the World for 2011 by TRAVEL AND LEISURE.com http://www.travelandleisure.com next only to 1.Santorini, Greece, 2. Bali, Indonesia and3.Cape Breton, Canada.I know right. Bora is our pride. Been there twice and I saw how the island has transformed to cater to all sorts of tourists all across the economic spectrum and still maintain it's beauty and virgin side being Puka Beach up North. If it's our first time to be included in the list, maybe Shangri-La Boracay Resort & Spa was a big plus for the Island? Just my hunch.
At any rate, if you haven't been to Bora, I suggest you try it soon. Huwag nang umattitude and say you hate it coz it's crowded and so mainstream. Bora is Bora. That's a fact. I used to call it the playground of the Philippine elite. Still is but the local tourists that go there is diverse. It where the hippest beach parties are, probably the island in the list with the best beach, so many beautiful people displaying themselves everywhere, the best accommodations, so many fun activities and events. Bora is the place to be.

This what they had to say in their website:
"Now that even tiny islands such as Koh Samui are becoming mainstream, Boracay, in the Philippine, may be one of the last little-known Asian beach getaways. The sandy-shored speck is accessible via an hour-long flight from Manila to Caticlan, followed by a 10-minute ferry ride. Go now, before the crowds arrive. Already a growing number of travelers are lured by five-star properties, from the Shangri-La Boracay Resort & Spa to Discovery Shores. As proof of its rising profile, 2011 is the first year Boracay has ranked in the World’s Best Awards."
From the worst Airport to the 4th best Island in the world. I doesn't add up ayt? So I really hope they do something about our main airport para full package na. di maka-get over.lols
