Orchids Resort | Boracay Island

Orchids Resor Boracay
This was part of my Solo-Backpacking in Boracay
At first, when I booked my flight last year, during the promo sale, I was hesitant for this trip maybe because I am not so sure about my schedule either my budget.  But, just a week before my trip, I used my facebook account and asked my friends about any cheap resort in Boracay Island. Actually my original plan was to walk along the streets of Kalibo, Aklan, but when my friend gave me her friend's number who works in a resort at Boracay, I changed my original plan, it became backpacking to Boracay.

Orchids Resort is located at Station 3, Boracay Island. From Boracay Port, take a tricycle to station three, drivers are actually accommodating and they will instruct you to what street you'll take, for 100 pesos per trip.  There are part of Station 3 which tricycles are not allowed, so you need to walk going to your chosen resort.  But, in Orchids Resort, you just need to follow these marks, an additional challenge which can make you a strong traveller.  Check the photos below:

Just to give you an idea, this room is only for less than 600 pesos, good for two people. It's an ordinary room, but the resort personnel were really great.  The cold wind actually passes through the window, so the ambiance inside the room was great.  I stayed here for 3 days and 2 nights, I only paid 1,100 pesos.

The photo above taken while I was eating my Filipino Style breakfast, for FREE.  Want to see my breakfast, click here: Breakfast at Orchids Resort.  While taking my breakfast, the wind was blowing that shells which that creates a relaxing sound.

Boracay Island
Few steps from the resort, I captured this gorgeous photo using my mobile phone.  The white sand beach, crystal clear waters, the horizon, white clouds, blue skies and the palm trees were absolutely inviting.  MY STAY IN ORCHIDS RESORT WAS AMAZING AND UNFORGETTABLE, cheap but a GREAT CHOISE. From this resort going to Boracay Port, just walk taking the right street, walk until you reach "QUEEN" Resto, then take the narrow street beside it until you reach the main road which you can take tricycle to Boracay Port for only 20 pesos.

Solo-Backpacking in Boracay Island | Worlds Finest

Boracay Island
Boracay Island is one of the best beaches in the world, that’s according to the travel agencies, websites, blogs, magazines and other people’s reviews and I can say “yes it is one of the best!.” The fine, white sand at the shoreline can be compared to a fine table salt, actually others said, that it’s like a baby powder.  The pristine, crystalline water is really adorable, as it serves as a mirror of the blue skies with cirrus clouds on it.  The reflection is like a painting of Michelangelo, as the blue water and skies forming a horizon, parallel to the shoreline.
The splash of the water sounds like an orchestra; with bass, tenor, alto and the soprano joined together for a coastal concert.  As the wind blows the palm leaves, it creates a great vibrato combined with harmony.  The coconuts were like the dancers of the orchestra.

The shadows of the trees are like a Christmas trees on the white sand.  The moment is like a scene during winter, as the sand compared to the pure snow on the ground.  In noon time, while the sun is shining brightly, the shore is like a white curve line that serves like a ground of the playing waves while in high tide.

Boracay Island is just a small area of Malay, Aklan, but can be compared to a continent that contains different nationalities. Local dialect, Filipino, English (different accents,) Portuguese, Spanish, Korean and Chinese can be heard in different part of this island.  Because of its natural beauty, this island can be considered as the second home of many foreign people.

Another attraction will be the golden sunset, which converts the blue skies into gold.  The sun is playing with darkness as the evening comes.  The shadows of the dunes on the sand add a great effect with my camera.  The sailing vintas are like following the horizon and are adding a great image while the sun is saying goodbye.  The people were all standing, facing the sunset, and capturing the perfect moment!
