If there is one place that is perfect for celebrating, whether it be a 21st birthday or a wedding reception, that place would be Boracay. This is the ideal destination for a quick weekend getaway or a one week escape from the hustle and bustle of the hectic city life.

Boracay is known around the world for their beautiful beaches, quaint little bars and scrumptious seafood. There are luxurious resorts as well as other hotels that won’t break the bank to cater to whatever type of vacation you are looking for. So, whatever your budget maybe, Boracay has something for everyone.

When planning a trip to Boracay it is important to pack wisely. Do not fill your suitcase with ten swimsuits and ten pairs of slippers. It is surprising to some that Boracay has a shopping center called D’Mall which is literally a 3 minute walk from the beach. Tourists may want to pack lightly and purchase some unique Boracay t-shirts, bathing suits, clothing or other souvenir’s at this location.

If booked at one of the more extravagant resorts, most of the toiletries that will be needed will be found in your suite. A few of these hotels go far and beyond their guests expectations and even prepare personalized cupcakes. However, if booking a cheaper hotel room, one should come prepared with basic toiletries such as a toothbrush, hairbrush, toothpaste, soap and shampoo. Sunblock is a must. An extra towel wouldn’t hurt either.

Now that the basics are down, think about what type of clothing to pack. Plan clothing based on what time of the year the vacation is going to take place. If it is summertime then the women will need a swimsuit, a pair of shorts, tank tops and a skirt are perfect vacation ensembles. For the men, board shorts and t-shirts are all you will need. Pick pieces that are easy to mix and match to create different looks without lugging around a suitcase that is overweight. Leave the high heels and leather shoes at home. Flip flops are the way to go. They can be used on the beach and even at the night clubs when the sun goes down.

There are many airlines that fly to Boracay and offer great deals. SEAIR has daily flights to Boracay, which is great for an impromptu escape. Plan the trip ahead of time and get huge discounts. It is important to choose a good airline to ensure a vacation that begins hassle free.
