    And who have not heard of Boracay Island, the Philippines' world-famous beach resort, an hour away by plane from Manila to the Visayas.

    The island paradise with its four kms.stretch of powdery sand called White Beach has won praises from CNN in 2014 and as one of the best destinations in the Philippines and in 2012 by Travel + Leisure, an international travel magazine, as "the best island in the world."

    Thousands of visitors, local and foreign tourists, come to Boracay to enjoy and relax and swim and lie on the white sand.

    At night they crowd the stretch between the sea and the beach front hotels and resorts, mingling, eating, drinking, having happy times, enjoying life at its fullest.
