Camping in Borawan?

MANILA, Philippines  If it weren't for the bad weather lately, I would've taken up my friend's offer to go camping in Borawan tomorrow.

Borawan Island is in Quezon province.
By the looks of it, it's a merger between Boracay and Palawan!

The two-day camping trip includes visiting six islands for just around Php 1,000! Again, if only it would stop raining in Quezon. But sadly, it won't, according to recent weather reports.

I just hope I don't regret not going.

See the 2D/1N itinerary my friend shared.

  1. Great post.
    Look at my web-site - electronic delivery

  2. Generally,Low Fee Cheap Payday Loans all you need to be eligible for a payday loan is
    really a steady method to obtain income, including disability or alimony, a
    checking or piggy bank, plus a few references Paydayuk because with the difficulties in the above
    list, going to a payday advance establishment gives people a
    much better possiblity to receive fast loans given that they
    don't, oftentimes, need to own a credit check needed.

  3. Ask ko lang kung san kayo nakakuha ng contact nyong boatman? ang mura kasi 6 islands pa! Nagsearch ako, ung iba sa Vista playa restaurant kumuha ng boat para sa island hopping inabot ng 2k for 3 islands lang! And ung mga nabasa ko 2011 pa! naisip ko baka depende kung san kami kukuha ng boat for island hopping para makamura.. Remember mo pa po ba? Hehe salamat po...

    1. Hello!
      I asked my friend who shared me this itinerary. Unfortunately she doesn't have the contact details.

      She suggests asking the bus driver for referrals. May mga kakilala yan. At the time, they were dropped off in a random store.

      Hope this helps.
