No one can argue that Boracay remains to be the most visited tropical vacation destination in the Philippines. With pristine blue waters and powder white-sand shorelines stretching miles, it’s no surprise that this place has recently been crowned by Trip Advisor’s Traveler’s Choice Awards as one of the Top 10 Best Islands in Asia for 2016.
The world-famous beauty of Boracay has continued to amaze both locals and tourists looking in for a well-deserved time off from the unforgiving city heat and traffic, not to mention the undeniable banality of the daily work grind. In fact, people from all over the globe flock to this island in search for the best Asia getaway that features a tropical vacation like no other. This has led to Boracay consistently being the number one island that promotes Philippine tourism.
Now, everyone is familiar with the island’s sand and sea but if there is one other thing you need to know about Boracay, it’s LABORACAY.
Laboracay is not a place in the island, it’s a happening that has taken the worlds of both locals and tourists by storm. The term is a combination of the words “Labor” and “Boracay” since this scene happens on the weekend of Labor Day in the Philippines.
The celebration leaves Boracay brimming with throngs of locals and tourists ready to enjoy and witness as the paradise island turns into a party island. During this time, Boracay visitors can indulge on a weekend of revelry filled with endless parties and overflowing drinks- all right by the beautiful shores of the island. Don’t even think about sleeping in early because Laboracay’s night life pulsates ’til the wee hours of the morning so our advice is to just embrace the thumping bassline of either live or recorded music, perk up with beer or cocktail, and eat charred seafood, chicken, and pork grilled to perfection. Believe us, there is a reason this phenomenon is dubbed as the Spring Break of the Philippines- it’s not something you’d do every year (especially if you like going to tropical vacations for some peace and quiet) but it’s definitely one of those things you won’t regret experiencing at least once. Laboracay is the perfect method of escape so you can free yourself from overthinking about all the responsibilities you have back home as you try to survive adulthood.
It’s still a few months away but you can book yourself a flight to experience the Philippine Labor Day in a Boracay vacation unlike no other! Just check out our Laboracay travel deals here: https://www.philippinetourismusa.com/promos/.
