The Boracay Insider“Close, but no cigar!”

Ok, probably we were just a little bit ahead of ourselves[making it happen in 2011 challenge]. But 2012 is seen to be the year that visitors to the island resort of Boracay reach the million mark[original target is 2013].

With new airlines servicing the country and more international direct-flights to Kalibo International Airport[KIA] from Hong Kong, South Korea and Taiwan, plus, the highly-anticipated Boracay Airport[MPH] “night flights” expected in summer 2012, Boracay is definitely ready to welcome it’s 1 millionth guest this year!
