First off, boarding the 'budget air' Cebu Pacific airways. The plane ride is similar in most ways with any other airline, except that the stewardess play a game in between the flight, giving away their airline's products as prizes!
The questions were not tough - just things like: Who can show me their handphone, purse, belt, etc.
Anyway, a short ride and I arrived in Kalibu airport. Then it was a 1.5 hour van ride to the jetty. While some may find it boring, but the views of villages & paddy fields - that of South East Asia, is just scenic and always welcoming... making the ride bearable and in some ways enjoyable.
It was only later in the day did I find out that there was a typhoon in Manila (where the offices was closed for half day)! The ripples of the typhoon must have reached Boracay in some ways, though not as bad.
To get to the hotel, another ride awaits - the tricycle, which is to bring guests to any part of the island... namely to the hotel to check in!
*Apart from the boat ride fee, one is to pay 50 pesos for Terminal Fee + 50 pesos for Environmental & Admission Fee (to Boracay).
