    CNT described the Boracay island as “the itty-bitty island (just under four square miles) in the Western Philippines as close to a tropical idyll as you’ll find in Southeast Asia, with gentle coastlines and made-for-Instagram sunsets.”

    A record of 600,000 registered voters weighed in on the 32nd annual readers’ survey where Boracay island has reclaimed its glory after its 6-month rehabilitation last October 2018.

    The luxury and lifestyle travel magazine also took notice of Boracay’s White Beach, pointing out its powdery white sand and shallow azure water perfect for tourists who are into swimming and snorkeling.
