About This Blog
Flight chronicles of the backpacker Tutubi, with travelogues, pictures/photos/videos, travel guides, independent and honest reviews, affordable, recommended resorts and hotels (including inns, guesthouses, pension houses, lodges, hostels, condotels, bed and breakfast and other cheap accommodations), commuting guides, routes (sometimes street maps and GPS coordinates/waypoints) and driving directions to answer "how to get there" questions, information and tips on tourism, budget travel and living in Philippines, Exotic Asia and beyond!

Backpacking, independent travel, and flashpacking are cheaper than the "cheapest package tours" and promotional offers around but you can also use travel information for family vacations, even romantic honeymoon destinations.

    Boracay White Beach: Picture Perfect Paradise!

    Arrived at Caticlan airport on a Cebu Pacific flight and checked in at Boracay Court Yard, Tutubi and friends set out to walk on Boracay's famous (and much too touristy) White Beach famous for it's powdery white sand, and azure water.

    Pictures of Boracay: One of the top ten beaches in the World by Yahoo Travel in 2007:

    sailboats, locally known as paraw, with their colorful sails, waiting for customers for a sailing trip

    a romantic scene of two lovers HHWW on the beach :P

    Coming up: Kapamilya's Umagang Kay Ganda in Boracay, Kiteboarding/ Kitesurfing/ Windsurfing on Bulabog Beach and much,much more!

    Expect this to become some sort of a Boracay Photo Blog! :P

    Yes, a lot of tourists there particularly during Holy Week. I want to go to the one with lesser people. Find it more relaxing.

    I'm waiting for the day to come when I can go to Boracay. I'm so in love with its white sand and aqua blue sea!

    the Grotto looks so serene inspite of lotsa things to do around.. (or onti lng talaga tao that time)

    your posts are very informative esp the "how-to-get-there" part

    The last time I was in Boracay was years and years ago--the saddest thing is that one of my Boracay memories is snorkling and seeing a can of coke at the bottom of the ocean floor...

    I wish I could take a vocation there. It's such a lovely place!

    hi tutubi, been going through your site and especially the summary but yet detailed information covered on your Phillipine Travel Guide really has a destination in Phillipines for interest of any kind. Great work!

    Take a stroll barefoot on the sand, go snorkeling, shopping, diving, reef walking or simply sit back and watch the sunset, you’ll quickly find out why Boracay is paradise on earth.
