[BORACAY 2013] Masterpost (28 Feb - 5 March 2013)


Boracay, Philippines 2013: Masterpost
28 February - 5 March 2013 


As per my usual modus operandi, the tickets to Boracay, Philippines was booked way in advance (May 2012, in fact) and we started planning our stay a few months before the actual trip was supposed to take place.

Since we're leaving from Malaysia to Boracay, the route was a bit more complicated with AirAsia than I would've liked. The entire journey looks like this:
  • International AirAsia flight from Malaysia to Clark, Pampanga Airport
  • Domestic AirAsia Philippines flight to Kalibo Airport
  • 3-hour bus ride from Kalibo Airport to Caticlan Jetty
  • Short ferry ride to Boracay Island
  • Rinse, reverse and repeat journey back to Malaysia
So, yeah. All in all, my best advise to anyone who tries out this route: pack light! It would've been easier for us to take another flight from Malaysia directly to Caticlan airport, which is nearer to the jetty and would've saved so many travel hours for us as well.
