3A small island like Boracay just can't handle that number of visitors...it's a recipe for disaster. There is already too much pressure on the water and electricity systems as it is. The DoT and government should be trying to develop the tourism infrastructure in other parts of the country but they just seem happy to keep pushing Boracay as the place to go.
When we were last there (March 2011) it was packed with Korean tourists and they were rather rude and the atmosphere wasn't great because you couldn't walk 2m without someone shoulder barging you on the beach path.

5This is my third time to Boracay and loved it first time as wasnt too busy, but nows its just too much! Not particularly Koreans, but its the lack of any real Filipino feel to the Island now. Still a great place to visit if you want all the amenities and some great nightlife but I think this will definetly be my last visit. There are too many other places with amazing beaches but without the hassle and the sheer numbers of visitors. Give me the quietness and relaxation of Sipalay anytime!

9I think anyone planning to visit Boracay should try for the gaps between busiest times. So outside of Easter, Chinese New Year etc.. and between now and February cos its packed!
Bags feeling light?
