Boracay soars as favorite international traveler destination!

Based on Agoda.com survey of over 113K customers, Boracay is #1 in Relaxation and #3 in Nightlife


Philippine beach destination Boracay, has been named favorite for relaxation (#1) and nightlife (#3), according to a customer survey conducted by Asia’s leading hotel booking site, Agoda.com.

Based on feedback from over 113,000 respondents provided at the end of their stay, Agoda.com customers had the opportunity to rate the categories of Nightlife and Relaxation on a scale of 1-5, 1 being “poor”, and 5 being “excellent.”

Under the category of Relaxation, Boracay emerged as the clear top choice, beating out perennial favorite Bali which came in at second. Thailand beach destination, Koh Samui, rounded up the top three.

The top Nightlife spot was taken by Bangkok, Thailand’s energetic capital known for its tuk-tuk’s, temples and street food, making it one of the number one destinations on sites like Expedia, and other hotel booking sites. Bangkok is followed by Dubai, the gleaming desert city in the United Arab Emirates, and then Boracay, famous for its white sand beaches and swaying palm trees, came in third.

Boracay is the lone Philippine destination that has made the top 10 for both categories. Philippine capital Manila has held a top 22 ranking in the Nightlife category, while Visayas hub Cebu came in top 19 in the Relaxation category.

Boracay Sunset – by Hannah Villasis


  1. Looks like a wonderful place, great photos

  2. I really need to get myself landed on Boracay one of these days. A holiday destination but I guessed I have to wait until the Sulu and Sabah problem subside first. 😀

  3. You’ll be fine.. Sulu , Sabah – they’re far away from Boracay. go go go!
