The perfect description of beach life—‘Live in the sunshine, swim the sea and drink the wild air’. During the Easter break, I had been on a vacation to Boracay with my friends.
This vacation was one of the most unforgettable ones in my life. A complete contrast to the urban life in Hong Kong, Boracay is a rural tourist attraction, being one of the most famous islands in the Philippines.
The rural atmosphere enthralled by the beach, is worth experiencing. Boracay is one tourist place where tourists can experience all sorts of fun and frolic. The activities that can fill up the vacation range from basking in the beaches, beach pubs and fire dances all night to the daring activities like parasailing, scuba diving, helmet diving, jet ski, island hopping, snorkeling, cliff diving and what not. Boracay earns most of its income from tourism. The island has vast stretches of serine and amazing beaches and beach lines.
Breathtaking views from hill tops during trekking or cycling are worth seeing because they bring a kind of a joy and solace to our minds. Describing the beach lines, they are flocked with memo and artefact sellers every step you take. The beach atmosphere is filled with the aroma of the sea-food and intercontinental restaurants that flank the beach line. Hence I feel Boracay is a must visit place during one’s lifetime.

對沙灘生活最貼切的描述便是如此——沐浴陽光之下,暢遊大海之中,並且大口呼吸新鮮的空氣。復活節期間,我和朋友一起去了長灘島度假,而這次旅行也成為了一次十分難忘的記憶。
長灘島是菲律賓眾多著名小島之一,一個鄉村景色的旅遊勝地,這與香港的城市生活完全不同。籠罩在沙灘之上的鄉村氣氛值得你到這裡親身體驗一次。
在長灘島上,遊客可以盡情娛樂嬉戲。從曬太陽、沙灘酒會、篝火晚宴到更加刺激的帆傘運動、潛水潛泳、水上摩托、越島作戰、懸崖跳水,在這個島上你可以找到各式各樣的活動來充實假期的生活。
旅遊業是長灘島的主要經濟來源。綿延的海岸線,令人讚不絕口的沙灘,也正是這些支撐著長灘島旅遊業的興旺。徒步旅行或是環山騎行,從山頂鳥瞰的景色更是令人歎為觀止,那種語言難以形容的美景可以為我們帶來幸福和慰藉。沿著沙灘漫步,每一步都充滿了回憶,而空氣中又隱約瀰漫著海鮮以及洲際酒店大餐的香味。相信我,長灘島是一生中一定要去探訪的旅遊勝地!
