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.
Snippets of the street & some street food!

Most of the pedestrian streets are sandy paths.
Tying up the chickens??
Welcome to Talipapa! An open-air mall with souvenirs and beachwear for sale.

We love Boracay

The Jonas colours
Try a Jonas fruit shake if you are in Boracay!

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.
Mini ukulele with personalized names (110 pesos)
Shell containers (80 pesos each)
DIY name pendant (80 pesos) / with necklace (100 pesos)
Mango snack (70 pesos for 100g / 120 pesos for 200g)
Pork skin snack (45 pesos)
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!
