Move over Santorini.
Boracay, the country’s prime destination was named as the world’s best island by Travel + Leisure Magazine in its annual World’s Best Awards which ranks the top hotels, spas, cruise ships and other travel destinations around the world.
The list was announced in the Today Show by Travel + Leisure Magazine’s features director, Nilou Motamed. Boracay placed fourth in the 2011 survey. Aside from Boracay ( I abhor peope who call it Bora), Discover Shores also located in the island was cited as Asia’s Best Spa.
Here’s hoping that the kaching that will be brought by the award will not lead to further destruction of the island’s environment.
Still, kudos Boracay. It is truly more fun in the Philippines,
