Philippines - Boracay & Western Visayas (PDF Chapter)

$4.95 USD

This is the Boracay & Western Visayas chapter from Lonely Planet’s Philippines guidebook.

In general, the western Visayas attracts three types of visitors. The most common is the vacationer drawn by Boracay’s gorgeous White Beach, and the commercial hubbub that surrounds it: a collection of resorts, restaurants, bars, and tour promoters all lined up along one great stretch of sand. Next comes the diver drawn to world-class undersea destinations, from Romblon Island in the north to Apo Island in the south. Finally, there’s the off-the-beaten-track traveller braving endless miles of roadside shacks to discover the region’s discrete rewards, including mountain trekking, nightlife, architectural history, alluring beach resorts, and oases of fine food. p>
