Welcome to paradise. Boracay in the Philippines is the Côte d'Azur of Asia, a place where actors and models spend their best time of the year. The island has a size of only 10 km² (4,000 sq mi), located 300 km (190 mi) south from Manila, the capital of the Philippines.

Back in 2009, I fell instantly in love when I set the first time my foot there. The place was incredibly beautiful and laid back, I had found my own paradise with the most perfect beach.

I always wondered why people were telling me that Boracay is oh-so-expensive. I understand, people assume it's pricey to stay in one of the most beautiful places on earth. Here is the good news! It's not if you read this post and follow my tips! I spent in total almost a year in Boracay, trust me, I know this island better than my kitchen.
