The famous island of the Philippines is not really famous as a holiday destination when it’s the holiday season. Having that said, you should have a smooth holiday trip to the island. Tourists usually visit here during the summer but have you ever wondered what it’s like celebrating Christmas eve or New Year’s eve on a beach? Turns out that it is just as stunning as it is during summer during the festive season. Hotel accommodation is less since most people don’t flock here during December so you can have the chance to relax and be in a seaside mood. During this time of year, it’s not just cities that are dressed out in their finest attire. This year’s Christmas wonderland on the island of Boracay is also decked out with beautiful lights and sparkling garlands.

Festivities are afoot in every corner and the town is brought to life: you will discover that from the hotel rooms to the beach walks, everything is decked out in red and white. During the holidays, palm trees on the seafront are decked up in lights and decorated like tropical Christmas trees so make sure to file your vacations for this!
