Running on reserves

A travel blog entry by annavan

... you wanted), meats, fresh juices, coffee, the list was endless I'm sure I've missed something. We stuffed our faces silly because it was all just too damn good. So we nursed our food bellies for the rest of the day but it was worth it. From the restaurant we took the tram a short ride across the city to the botanical gardens and zoo. The old trams are really cool in such a futuristic cosmopolitan place they stand out as having loads of character and add charm to the city. It's ...

Beetle Juice would of Loved this Place

A travel blog entry by elizacass


... No keroke bars, less people selling you cowboy hats, and no McDonald's. Our place, Daves straw inn got great reviews on trip advisor, one of my favorite sites to find my places i stay. Our place is a solid, concrete room, with air con, a small deck, and a cute courtyard, amazingly sweet staff, but i honestly prefer, the more genuine, creatively built bungalows with a ceiling fan and a couple of geckos sharing my space. But this place will do for a few days while we explore ...

... to choose from. If you like fresh sea food make sure you find the Boracay Fresh Fish Market. Choose whatever fresh fare your want to eat and then take it to any one of the nearby restaurants to cook it up for you. My favorite place was the Original Hawaiian Bar-B- Que. The baby back ribs were awesome! For shopping check out the D'Mall and the Talipapa Market. Plenty to do in Boracay if you can find the motivation. ...

Boracay- tourist heaven, worth a bit extra.

... classics like banana boating (highly amusing) and para-sailing off a speed boat (highly frightening!) but epic views. The highlight was the buffet we had on the last night, yes it was expensive (10pounds each!) but the food was just amazing. Huge American steaks cooked perfectly with just the right amount of smokey flavour, italian meats, seafoods, salads, tasty puddings and as always a friendly cat pestering us for tidbits when the staff ...

... on Tripadvisor, and based on the seafood laksa I had I wouldn't disagree. Very creamy, spicy broth with vermicelli noodles and lots of fish, prawns and mussels. Delicious.

I followed this at 10.30 with an hour massage. I was on the way back to Diniwid when I asked the trike driver how much it would cost to take a drive round the island. He quoted 350 an hour which sounded like a bargain so we turned right of the main road past the Happy Dreamland amusement park and climbed ...

The Crystal Sand was a hotel that everyone has to stay at least one night in Boracay. The interior of the outlook of the hotel is very western style and the staff there was extra friendly. I bet you can not find a place with a better staff and service. The hotel included American and Filippino style breakfast with shampoo and conditioner along with a soap. The great thing about this place is that if you call eariler about a week, you can request a pick-up from the airport and also can request a different sized bed. Over-all, its simply the best!
