BORACAY

by: Edge Dulatas




Yes! I’m also ALONE here! Hahaha!


I really wanted to go to the beach. None of my friends are available. I found an airfare promo at PAL. So, I decided to go alone. I’m not broken-hearted nor searching for myself….. I just really wanted to go the beach. 😊
I don’t have any hotel reservations. I arrived late at night. The good thing about Bora is that there are a lot of people, hotels, restos and stores.

I went to Station 2 and look for a hotel. I found cheap hotel near Real Coffee. Dropped my bag then PARTY! Lol!


There are a lot of beach-front bars. My friend recommended Epic Bar and Summer Place. I don’t really drink. Bought Jack and Coke though. (Just for display lol!)

Since I’m alone and I’m not a good swimmer, I decided to try some fun activities.

TIPS💡

  • Don’t sleep that much (this is a bad advice! But i did everything coz i stay awake all the time. I go for activities in the morning and party at night)
  • Haggle! Always! They charge higher on foreigners 😔 sorry! I feel bad too!
  • Transportation (van and boat ride) is cheaper in the morning. (I arrived around 10pm 😔)
  • Buy groceries. It’s cheaper. Buy water in groceries too. 
  • Be flexible with your itinerary. (You don’t know when it’s gonna rain)
  • Traveling solo doesn’t mean you should be alone all the time.
  • Make friends to everyone! As in everyone! I met 2 children, their parents, an elementary student on the tricycle, 2 foreigners on para sailing, had dinner with the kuya tour guide, night life with a girl I met in a carinderia (with her bf), afternoon chizmiz with ate waitress……etc..
  • Don’t just travel, live like a local!
