Some things do not stay as they are, but that doesn’t mean that it’s a bad thing. In Boracay’s case, its temporary closure meant a better opportunity for locals and tourists alike to become more responsible settlers and visitors of the island. While many people still dream of visiting this piece of paradise, here are things to remember as you choose Boracay as your holiday destination:
When on the island, a simple rule has to be followed: clean as you go. Though this is a basic rule to be applied anywhere you go, this one thing is an essential when visiting Boracay . You sure don’t want to get your beach selfie ruined by a pile of trashes as your background, so better not contribute to this wrongdoing.
Contrary to what it was once known for, wild parties and extreme water activities may not be allowed to take place as the island reopens this October 2018. A beautiful island such as Boracay deserves to be an escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. So, if you’re down for days of pure relaxation and some me-time, then this destination’s for you.
You can definitely survive a day or two in here without internet connection. Cellular data connection is good out here, but we think you’re not going to need to scroll down on your Instagram feed as you stay in this island because it’ll be a waste of time. We guess you’d rather sunbathe or take a dip in Boracay’s cool waters rather than browse on social media on such a lovely summer day.
Despite the changes, Boracay remains to be a stunning beach destination on its version 2.0. It still has the same (or even better!) powdery, white sand and turquoise waters that you may enjoy on your vacation here. It still has the same sunset that everyone wishes to take sight of, and it still has the same friendly and hospitable people who welcome you and cater to your needs during your stay.
As this world-class island continues to fill its visitors with awe of its natural beauty, it will never be too difficult for you to choose Boracay as your holiday destination, no matter what the occasion it may be.

Filipinos are known for their long holiday celebration. Many traditions and new ways keep this season alive no matter which city or town you go. You won't run out of things to do (but your budget probably will!) when you celebrate the holidays in the Philippines through these activities:
It's this time of the year when massive pop-up year-end bazaar and sale events happen, so go ahead and take advantage of the markdown madness to complete your Christmas gift list.
How many masses have you attended so far? Get up early or spare an hour so you could attend the mass at night because as they say, completing the 9-day or -night series will make a wish come true.
As soon as the holiday season comes, many parks and tourist attractions open Christmas-themed shows that are perfect for all ages. These Instagram-worthy locations are usually free of charge, making them picturesque and cheery venues to gather with your friends and families.
It has been part of the Filipino tradition to gather in groups and sing either classic or remixed tunes as they go from one house to another. Just as long as you know the lyrics to the in-trend Christmas songs, you'll definitely get those coins, or if you're lucky, you'll receive bills from your kind neighbors!
Many Filipinos love merrymaking, so expect most of your December weekends, and sometimes, weekdays too, to blocked off with schedules of parties. It's also a time to meet the newborns or catch up with the relatives who you haven't spoken to for a long time. Make your reunion party more memorable and let SweetEscape photographers turn your moments into beautiful photographs. Special for this holiday season, get 50% OFF on your 2-hour photo shoot, anywhere in Manila.
The Filipino version of Secret Santa is a more exciting and interesting one because gift-giving is done in small batches. Whether the category's something big, something fluffy, something embarrassing, or something naughty, you'll surely go home with a smile on your face because your friend or officemate could surely find a gift to pull that category or theme off!
For some Filipinos, the holiday season means quality time, without the hassle of preparing feasts or organizing parties. Some simply prefer staying in or booking an accommodation where they could all relax and exchange thoughtful gifts after a hearty meal.
To some who've been looking forward to a unique kind of celebration for the holidays, setting off to another country is an option. School or office breaks give them a chance to explore new places, making their holidays a more memorable one.
In times like these, memories are meant to be saved. Especially if you've waited long enough for your family to be complete this holiday season, don't miss the chance to document those moments — let SweetEscape do it for you.
SweetEscape now offers a one-hour photo shoot that'll capture your best holiday moments in 1-2 spots.
