Travel: Boracay

The weather is crap and your home may not be insulated.

There is less skin to stare at and you can’t really feel as though you are in Asia anymore.

Tolerating bad air and the antithesis of logic may be fine when the weather is good, but when it’s cold too? No. I say no, no more, I demand satisfaction.

This is where Boracay comes in.

Boracay is about 4 hours away on a relatively cheap flight.

It’s a very small island and still reasonably under-developed for a tourist place – in a good way.

It doesn’t have flashy strips or any ‘organised’ kind of resort urbanisation – it is mainly just a couple of beachfront areas with a selection of simple restaurants and hotels on the same beachside, all collected within a couple of kilometres.

The Shangri-La Boracay is really the best place on the island. It may be the most expensive, so it depends on your budget.

Boracay can offer very cheap hotel rooms right on the beach – and then, of course, you can still go to the Shangri-La if you fancy something upscale for a night or an evening.

You can’t go wrong in Boracay.

      Even if I complain that there is no proper indoor heating and that because of humidity and rain, it has felt for two weeks like all of Hong Kong has been living inside a wet, grey sock? I know, still no sympathy from the heartier Shanghai types!
