Streets of Colourful Boracay || 探索长滩岛

My friend was wishing me a splishy-splashy-sunny-sumptuous-spectacular Boracay trip! (remember sun-sand-sea-shades-and-silly-Joo?)

Indeed, a very apt description or summary of what Boracay was this time round. Throw in shopping and street food, almost perfect!

I personally like to check out the streets of the foreign cities / places that I visit.

Our schedules were pretty packed this time round, so I would probably take a little more time to explore the streets of Boracay the next time I return to this paradise.

长滩岛色彩斑斓的街道、食物与琳琅满目的商品,吸引着我们这群观光博客的目光。

由于这次的活动行程非常精彩,时间排得满满的,希望下次可以再回到长滩岛,探索它生气勃勃的市集与体验当地人的热情。

Snippets of the street & some street food!

Shopping!

A trip to Boracay wouldn’t be complete without a little souvenir shopping. Our colourful adventure usually starts in the evening before or after dinner, where street stalls are set up along the sandy paths with a variety of knick-knacks that you can get for your loved ones.

血拼!Smith 常常嚷着要去购物,我们当然也奉陪。晚饭前后,我们最爱在长滩岛的夜市或D’Mall寻猎战利品。若在同一间商店或摊位购买多于两件商品,记得请店家给个折扣哦!

You could also get bikinis, slippers, surf shorts etc, but do remember to bargain a little if when you are getting quite a few items from the same shop.

The trip has been an eye-opener with so much to share. Hope you enjoyed reading about Boracay as much as I’ve enjoyed writing about the experience!
