Life is (indeed) a beach

Manila, Philippines

Ever been to a good beach? Try Boracay, one of the most famous beaches in the Philippines. Although some would say that the long beach is slowly deteriorating, it’s still a nice, cozy place to go to.

Spending: P23,000 rough total
– P13,000 – Airfare cost during peak season from (and back to) Manila, which is expensive. So, best if you book at least 3 months before your trip.
– P750 – 2.5 nights of parking (if you have a car) in Terminal 3
– P200 – 1-time terminal fee
– P260 – boat ride fee from (and back) to the airport
– P200 – tricycle fee from (and back) to the port
– P5,000 – 2-night stay at Hey Jude Hotel
– P3,000 – food, drinks and a little shopping for 3 days

Eating Favorites:
– Coconut / Buko Shake
– Fresh Sea Food (purchase during dinner time only)
– Jonah’s Army Navy Sandwich
– Hey Jude’s Longganisa Breakfast
– Sun Asian Kitchen’s Laksa

Learnings:
– It is really more fun in the Philippines. Shout out to the locals!
– Juggling work and vacation is workable.
– Travel light if you’re spending just 3 days and 2 nights.
– Live and love life!
