6 days and 5 nights of Lankawi travel http://www.mafengwo.cn/i/893836.html
First of all, let's explain a title. The land and water "empty" does not mean that we have to go all out to get to long beach by plane, by boat and by car, but represents our activities on the island. Water: we go snorkeling, diving, sailing to watch the sunset; Lu: let's drive an off-road vehicle and climb the mountain to get a bird's-eye view of the whole Long Beach Island from the top of the mountain“ We can chat in West cove, have a glass of orange ice, watch the sea view in Nami and have breakfast.
Before leaving, I didn't dare to tell my parents that I was going to the Philippines, because the old people would worry about our safety and that we would be taken hostage. So I had to tell them to go to Malaysia to avoid unnecessary trouble. They will say, why did they go to Malaysia again? Haven't they been to Malaysia several times? I can only say that Malaysia is very big and has many islands, which can't be finished at one time_ →
The consumption level of Long Beach Island is in the middle position, so eating is not particularly cheap. Compared with other Southeast Asian countries, our per capita cost for six days is 3413.56 yuan, and the details are as follows:
The bar chart of 6-day travel cost per capita is as follows:
The per capita cost ratio of the 6-day trip is as follows:
Our ticket was bought during the promotion of Pacific Airlines in Cebu.
Note: the real-time currency conversion fee in the booking can be cancelled by removing the tick on the previous page of payment.
There are two routes to Long Beach Island. Route 1 is Macao Manila calibo Long Beach Island, and Route 2 is Macao Manila catikelan Long Beach Island. The Philippines consists of a large group of small islands, as shown in the figure below
The specific time consumption of the two routes is as follows:
There are three maps of Boracay Island circulating on the Internet. I'll give you my impression. It's absolutely helpful for your journey, especially suitable for Lu Chi!
The first, the digital version, simply divides Boracay into five areas. 1, 2 and 3 make up 4 km of white beach, and the center of Long Beach Island is area 2 and 3. Bulabog beach in zone 4 is windy and suitable for windsurfing. Left 5 has Puka beach which is famous for Puka Shell, Shangri La is also there. Right 5 is the dock where we landed.
The second is a simple Chinese version. Good place for Long Beach:
Shopping: dmall, located in the second pier, boat station 2, referred to as S2.
Sunset sail, banana boat, flying fish, parachute: you can find a lot at the second pier.
Snorkeling: Virgin reef rock (you can go by yourself) or island hopping Tour (S2 and S3 have many agents to sign up for).
Diving: Friday's rock, crocodile Island! But it's a big wave. You can vomit enough at a time
Off road vehicle: zetro, located on the main road of the first wharf. You can drive to the top of the mountain, you must go up the mountain!
The third is the official explanation:
Do you see a yellow line in the island? That's the main road of Long Beach Island. Tutu cars run on this road. Look, in fact, the road of Long Beach Island is very simple. The activity places are almost all in central Boracay.
Introduction to the potential of Long Beach Island:
The following introduction is reproduced from clownfish's home:
Introduction to Long Beach Island
1. Yapak diving point: the first diving point on Long Beach Island, with a maximum depth of 80 meters. Faults, shark holes, reef sharks and white fin sharks can only be seen below 30 meters. There are also opportunities to see turtles and devil fish. Generally, dive to about 35 meters, the underwater time is not more than 7 minutes, and stay at 5 meters for 3 minutes. For diving without reference object, the compass shall prevail and buoy shall be carried. It is generally recommended to use hyperoxia or double bottles (limited to Technical Diving). The underwater corals are very luxuriant, and can be seen directly to the bottom of 80 meters. According to the tide situation, the time is arranged.
2. Camia's wreck dive point: the only dive point with a sunken ship on Long Beach Island, with a maximum depth of 26 meters, a hull length of 35 meters and a width of 10 meters. It has been about 10 years since 34 diving shops on the island raised funds to buy the sunken ship. It's very suitable for advanced course diving. There is no water in one part of the hull. You can take the breathing regulator out of your mouth to talk, but the time should not be too long. The underwater time is no more than 17 minutes, and the total diving time is about 28 minutes. The diving point extends inwards up to 100 meters, and the sea horse of Douding can be seen.
3. Crocodile Island: named after an island, it looks like the head of an alligator from a distance, and is known as a coral garden. Underwater is full of soft coral and hard coral, like a big garden, there are many small fish habitat again. After entering the water, the depth is 5 meters and extends around the island. The maximum depth is 26 meters. Generally, you can watch the seabed from 18 meters to 22 meters. Clown fish, starfish and small fish of different colors and types can be seen everywhere. If you look carefully, you can also find eel, Aplysia, squid, stone fish, etc.. It's suitable for photography lovers, ow beginners and experience diving, but the diving point should also be determined according to the tide time. If the ocean current is large, you can dive directly. You need to make a three minute safe stop at 5 meters.
4. Channel drift diving point: it belongs to the waterway line, and is generally used for release diving. The maximum depth is 35 meters, which is suitable for advanced exploration course or higher level divers. It is usually at the peak of high tide and low tide. It can be released to several kilometers, and the speed is very fast. It's the first choice for many diving enthusiasts. There will be a shark hole 30 meters underwater. You can see the shark sleeping. Let go diving learn to carry buoys and make a 3-minute safe stop at 5 meters.
5. Friday's diving point: the maximum depth of this diving point is 16 meters, and the shallowest place is 5 meters, which is suitable for divers who experience diving and ow courses. Underwater scenery is very beautiful, you can see groups of tuna and some larger fish.
6, Laguna de Boracay
Laguna de Boracay is located on the back (East) of Boracay. Suitable for beginners and professional divers. There are all kinds of soft and hard corals, big and small, and all kinds of strange sea anemones. Lionfish, stonefish, scorpionfish, butterfly fish, sea squirts, weather stars are all very common there.
Laurel island has two potential points. These two potential points will open up a strange underwater world. They can only dive at high tide. There is a strong current, so you have to be very careful when diving. But you can usually drift gently along coral reefs. In most areas, a variety of varied soft corals hide here, which is a very suitable world for macro photography.
Punta Bunga is a wall connected to yapak, which is suitable for beginners and experienced divers. Most divers choose to go at low tide. There are all kinds of soft and hard corals. Moray eels, groups, lionfish, trigger fish, Emperor angel fish and butterfly fish are everywhere. You may even see stingrays hiding under coral reefs.
Tulobhan reef is a drifting dive with relaxed and gentle currents. But there are also times of the year when there are turbulent currents. The vast and colorful soft and hard corals and weather star cover the whole coral reef. Coral reefs are also inhabited by coral eels and little fish. Garden eels appear in the coral reefs scattered on the deep sand.
Virgin drop is a typical diving point suitable for deep diving training. Sometimes, the change of tide may turn into drifting submarine. There are big sea fans and crinoids, more ears and nudibranchs. Sometimes ray can also be seen gliding in the warm water layer in the changing tide.

Lincannes resort, Long Beach Island on call transfer service!
The flight was at 10 p.m., so there was plenty of time this time. After leaving work at 5:30, I went home to eat and take a bath, and then I went to the airport slowly. At the same time, we kept urging my friend didi and his girlfriend, because they had something wrong and failed to meet them at Gongbei pass. Fortunately, they finally took a taxi to the airport and caught up with us. In fact, catching a plane is really a very important thing. If you're OK, you should get to the airport earlier. When I got to the airport, I saw the check in counter in Cebu Pacific. There were very few people. Because we both brought face mirror and breathing tube, we were worried that we would be overweight, so we both carried backpacks, didi and Jingjing had already taken off. Macao flight to Manila, did not say our luggage, smooth customs clearance. But the evil Cubu Pacific flight was delayed. Well, it was 40 minutes late.
After a two-hour flight, we arrived at Manila airport, the capital of the Philippines.
The people entering the country are good. They'll pass in a few minutes.
As soon as we entered the country, we immediately went to change money. We have already changed US dollars in the mainland. The US dollar found on the Internet can be exchanged for 41.78 Philippine pesos. However, the airport dollar can only be exchanged for 41 pesos, so we also compared several exchange shops at the airport. With the experience of the last trip in Vietnam, the exchange rate of the airport is better than that of the urban area. I decided to exchange all US dollars here for pesos. Later, when I went to Long Beach Island, I could only exchange $1 for 40.5 or 40.6 pesos per store
After changing the money, didi and I separated. He sleeps in the hotel, I sleep in the airport! We went up to the fourth floor of the airport. There were a lot of food shops and many people spent the night there. It's not easy for me to find a sofa stool on my left side that I can sleep on. The next door is being renovated. It's very noisy!
Finally, I found a corner and lay down there. WiFi at the airport is very slow, so we have to make do with it.
A minute ago, there was no one at the check in counter on the third floor.
A minute later, I rubbed my eyes, NIMA suddenly so many people!
In the airport, you need to buy a car and boat ticket: 150P / person; At the dock, you need to pay the dock tax: 100p / person.
And then out of the airport, you can take this car to the dock, about 10 minutes.
Then take a crab boat for another 20 minutes or so, and you can get to Boracay, Long Beach Island.
On the shore, out of the dock, you have to take Tutu car to get to your hotel. They are clearly priced. When we went to diniwid laundry, we got a 180P car. Later, we learned that one car can hold seven people. It's awesome. At first, I thought it could only take two or three people.
It's a 20 minute drive from the dock to our B & B, so far away!
Their dog just gave birth to a pot of cubs. I dream that I can own such a house, so I can have a few dogs and live a leisurely life.
After putting down our luggage and taking a bath, we decided to go out to find something to eat. Yujie recommended a fried rice restaurant and went to the seaside. But we couldn't find it. We went straight to the seaside and didn't find it. But we found Nami, not a woman, but a hotel^_^ The environment is good. We have an invincible sea view. We have to come here for breakfast in a few days.
In desperation, we had to take Tutu bus to dmall to find food. We went out from diniwid laundry, and the Charter price was 100p / set. If you can take a free bus, it's 20p / person. We just took a free bus and went to dmall.
There are two supermarkets in the two entrances of dmall, one is green and the other is white. And last time I saw the pirate king drink in Chiang Mai, this time I saw angry birds!
After a tour, I found a 888 seafood restaurant to eat. The taste was very common. I ordered two meals, a cup of coconut juice, 480p in total, which was expensive.
This dish of fried rice shattered my three views.
The roast chicken wings here are very black. Maybe the local people have strong anti-cancer ability!
After an unsatisfied lunch, we continued to walk to the seaside, where there were many small shops. We're targeting, looking for potential stores, asking about prices and potential locations.
After asking several potential stores, we found that milk's dive center is the largest one with the same price, so we decided to dive here for joy, with the price of 1600p per person. After discussion, we confirmed that the potential point is Friday's rock.
All the families are on holiday, and the children are the happiest.
Tired of playing, you can sleep for a while.
One of the characteristics of Long Beach Island, sand sculpture!
Free sand sculpture!
Sand sculpture for money! If you don't want to give money, just shoot and run!
Virgin reef, snorkeling here, there are many small fish.
On a hot day, it's not easy to walk on a complete white beach. This is the end of area S1. It's shot back. It's almost the destination!
Seeing this boat is like seeing home, because it's not easy to walk back to diniwid beach!
When we went back to the B & B, we were worried that didi didn't have a key to enter the B & B. later, we found out that they hadn't arrived yet. I'm waiting for them while watching city hunter with my iPad. I'm looking forward to the stars and the moon. They're finally here! Coincidentally, we agreed to go to "Hong Kong Kitchen" for dinner together!
First of all, we take Tutu bus to talipapa seafood market, charter 100p, sometimes cut to 80p, see if you have patience.
Talipapa is in area S3. It takes about 15-20 minutes for Tutu to pass by. It depends on the master's skill. What we see in the market is that Chinese people are bargaining to buy seafood. Even those who sell seafood can speak some Chinese! We bought two crabs, 450p. Two tiger prawns, 600P. A grouper, 350p. A total of 1400p, 220 yuan.
We told the boss that we were the gold medic awesome strong woman, and the boss and I were all Chaoshan people. They gave us 4 cups of mango juice for a while, haha, and gave them strength!
Fried crab in typhoon shelter, spicy tiger shrimp, steamed grouper, and a cat dish in soup (taste similar to gurgling dish), the processing fee is 1300p, equivalent to 200 yuan, and the material fee is 420 yuan, about 100 yuan per capita.
After eating and drinking, we went to the white beach and went in through the dmall entrance.
The beach is full of all kinds of food and music parties, very lively, singing very well!
There are acrobats, tips can be taken together!
And the DJ's at chuck's, raise your hand!
Tired of walking, have a mango banana milkshake in S1 area!
Remember to be semi saccharist, or it's too sweet.
Some sand sculptures can also be seen on the sand.
The sea also faded, leaving some traces. Today's trip is over, and we are welcomed by tomorrow's joy dive and Didi's experience dive.
Although it's early, the weather is a little overcast. I'm worried about the underwater visibility!
Take our DM (white), forget the name, in the underwater super care of us, swim slowly, will not care to play, super DM!
This is the last photo we took from GoPro hero2. Later, because of my negligence, I let it drink water. Since then, it has become an exhibition at home.
This will only give you some impressions. Today's Friday's rock underwater visibility is super high, you can see things 15 meters away, you can see a large area of small fish, still above the coral, the picture is very beautiful! You can also see some bigger fish! And the waves are very small here. I'm not seasick. I'm so awesome!
After diving, we had a rest. Lunch was at andok's chicken, just opposite the back door (main road), very close. It's a bit similar to KFC and McDonald's. The taste is OK.
We ordered half roast chicken, roast pork, and two barbecues. PS: the cube on the left is rice. It's very bad. I've never seen such bad rice! Next time decisively single point solo! This meal only cost 304p, much better than the 480p fried rice on the first day!
Didi and Jingjing went to Angol point to experience the potential.
Can swim is not the key, the key is to have posture!!!
After sleeping for a while, Hui people leisurely walk to West cove to sigh tea and blow water to watch the sunset. It's next to Nami. The ticket is 150P, and a bottle of lemon tea is given away. Four people sit together to chat, laugh and scold. Ha ha, it's very good. There are many people, and they can kill people!
Since didi taught me how to take good photos of fat people, you will never want to see my photos in the future!
Dee: a positive one, smile. Jingjing: melon seeds^_^
See, the side! All the security brothers here are equipped with guns!
Pet sprite fire dragon reappears in the world!
Crab boat in the setting sun, on the way home.
After a freehand afternoon in West cove, we plan to go to another restaurant for dinner to eat roast chicken, named mang inasal. According to Yu Jie, this spicy chicken is pretty good. The one we went to was next to talipapa seafood market. When we went back to dmall, we found that there was one in it. We didn't have to go so far to the seafood market.
The one on the right is halo halo. It's a bit like shaoxiancao. It's a mixed dessert. It tastes good.
Chicken leg rice, barbecue kebab rice, this family's rice is better than andok's!
Jingjing may have eaten something unclean last night, so she ran to the toilet all night and didn't sleep much, so our itinerary changed temporarily. Yo Yo and I decided to go diving again. This time we went to crocodile island with Michael. Their potential store is called Boracay Island divers. Walk to dmall in the green skin supermarket, walk to the seaside, and then walk to the left for a while, you can see this lovely bear.
The picture on the right shows me and Michael, who is from Shanghai. It's over. This is my front. It's seen!
The equipment of potential stores is very new, they are all famous brands!
Crocodile Island, where there are a lot of coral, I went to super big wave that day! What a big wave! As I was dizzy, I only dived for 10 minutes, and I had already vomited. I went straight on board to have a rest. My diving partner later also vomited to death, and also made the later trip to the mooring island have the shadow of seasickness, ha ha. Attached is a picture Michael took for us.
Crocodile island is a large area of coral. I'm not lying to you.
Now pose properly, ha ha.
All kinds of OK, no problem.
That's to see coral!
All kinds of coral and fish.
Box dolphin, barberless puffer fish.
Attached is a photo of Richard Whitcombe, an underwater photographer and coach I met online. He is an Englishman. He went to many diving spots on Long Beach Island, including Angel point, Fridays rock, crocodile Island, Carabao Island, camia wreck and tribord wreck. He has strong photography skills. In addition, the visibility of Long Beach Island is very high, and the weather is convenient and the people are all in one. You can feel it.
Soft and hard corals and blue starfish from Angol point.

Trigger fish can attack people. My partner almost broke his fins. Fortunately, Michael quickly pulled away my partner, and then saw them heading for a group of people behind. Ha ha.
Look at the wool. I don't know you.

Nemo and its home in close proximity.
It's like a spaceship.
The engine of the wreckage, enough to pull bang!
We only went to two diving spots this time. Because there is no AOW, we can't go to the sunken ship or the place more than 18 meters. It's a pity. Thanks to Richard for providing us with so many beautiful photos of the bottom of Long Beach Island, which aroused my desire to go diving there again. Thank you very much，Richard Whitcombe. Your beautiful photos will be attracting me to come back to Boracay for diving again.
After coming back, because of dizziness, we slept all afternoon. Thanks to didi and yoyo, we went to the Hong Kong kitchen to pack crab porridge for Jingjing and me in the evening. We were able to save our lives. Thank you very much!
After a night's sleep, I felt like I had a hangover. My head was still a little heavy. At about 10 a.m., we went to Nami to have brunch. In fact, we mainly went up to have a breeze and have a look at the invincible sea view. A brunch plus the service charge is about 700p, which can be eaten by two people. We walk from B & B to diniwid beach and then turn right. Nami restaurant has been advertised downstairs. Our family is in Long Beach Island, and the sea view is the best!
There are not many people in the restaurant, most of them are tourists living here.
A fruit, a French bread, sausage and eggs, the taste is general.
The scenery is really first-class. It's better to see than to eat!
In the afternoon, we first went snorkeling in diniwid beach for an hour and saw some small fish. Then we went to take the sunset sail. When we went to S2, it was already 6 p.m. and the boatman was about to leave work. Four people were 1000p. They took the last boat to watch the sunset. It was windy, cool and beautiful. During this period, we had to propose (OK, not me). Because of the large scale, it was inconvenient to see the above picture, only some sunset pictures were shown, Hey, hey, you feel it.
Mr. Xu's proposal was successful, so he invited us to have dinner at "Fujian people in Long Beach", which is next to the talipapa seafood market. There are still many people and often full lines. We bought the ingredients from talipapa and let them process them.
The store is full of customers' comments, which seems to become a trend.
One shrimp with two flavors, salt and pepper and steamed. Because the shrimp is chilled, the heavy taste of salt and pepper shrimp will be delicious, and the steamed garlic is a little salty, and the taste is general.
What saddens me most is this dish of raw oysters. It cost me 90p to buy raw oysters, but the processing fee is 390p, because it's weighed by weight!!!
With the cheese to do, the taste is not as good as Zhuhai!!! I regret it so much!!! The dish next door is blood clam. I don't know why it's a little cold.
Steamed grouper. Well, their soy sauce doesn't like sugar.
Material cost 1125p, thought saved, God knows processing cost 2181p, doubled! This meal was a failure. To sum up, the processing cost of shellfish was high, and there were too many shrimps and two flavors.
Today is the last day in Long Beach Island, because tomorrow morning is the departure home, cry, cry. Stop, I haven't come back today! Because we are poor and crazy, we can only eat a fried rice nearby. The one introduced by Yu Jie finally let me find the king of cost performance 60p fried rice! There is no signboard at the door. It's very inconspicuous, but it says in Chinese that it can help you process seafood. Other diners say it tastes good.
King of cost performance 60p fried rice!
After breakfast, call zetro at the downstairs buffet, and they'll drive us directly.
We are playing bug car, a two person SUV, 1000p / hour. Coach first explained to us the route of walking, and pay attention to safety, don't overtake and so on. The Superman downstairs was unfortunately stabbed in the process of transformation.
Then we set out, one by one, going up the mountain! Bless you, the driver in front of you is a racer. When we went up the mountain, there was a woman in front of us, driving as slowly as walking, so we were eating dust behind us all the time!!! Want to overtake and can't, angry!!!
Driving to the top of the mountain, you need to buy tickets to go to the platform to view the scenic spot.
But when you get to the top of the mountain, you won't regret it, because Long Beach Island is really beautiful and blue.
After going down the mountain, we saw a Segway, so we went to experience it. Ha ha, it's fun. Here are four swordsmen of Segway!
For lunch, as our panchuan was about to run out, we went to andoks chicken to save money. But I also got a 355p fried pig hand, and later found it was not delicious!!!
Back to B & B, I gave the pig's feet to the broker.
At about 4 p.m., we were going snorkeling in diniwid beach. I think the person who can pose is much more important than the photographer. You see, how handsome this picture is. I just shoot it casually. This side is amazing!
I won't go into the water today. I'll be a photographer!
Chocolate Labrador, the meat is thick and comfortable to touch!
Baby lily, an Australian girl, is so cute.
After getting drunk and falling behind, we went back to the restaurant in the morning and ate a chicken leg rice, only 110p.
It's time to go home. Our Tutu broke down in the middle of the trip. It's really bad luck. However, we managed to catch up with the boat and the car. Didi's thoughtful appearance was captured. In fact, yoyo just wanted to shoot her armband, ha ha. The Tutu for the return trip is 200P / car.
The crab boat on Long Beach Island is 25p / person, the environmental protection fee is 50p / person, the wharf tax is 100p / person, and the business bus to Kalibo airport is 200P / person.
There are many ferries at sea, which can carry buses.
I took a business bus for an hour and a half to Kalibo airport. The road to Kalibo is winding. Remember to prepare the medicine for carsickness. There are a lot of people waiting at the airport, there is Ma Shaji service, God!
Manila in the sky, very beautiful!
We were at the end of our tether. Originally we had no money to eat Jollibee. Later, we found that Manila departure tax was 550p per person. Even if we could not save money, we had to take RMB 100 to the first floor of the airport to exchange pesos. Suddenly we had money back. Ha ha, fried chicken, let's go.
Their fried chicken is much better than KFC's!
Leave 550p for passers-by!!!
On the plane, there are still hundreds of P left, hurry to spend all!
Finally, when you go home, from B & B, via Kalibo to fly back to Manila, you have to leave at least so much money
Tutu bus to the wharf (200P) + crab boat (25p) + Long Beach departure tax (50p) + Long Beach environmental protection fee (100p) + terminal business bus to Kalibo (200P) + Manila departure tax (550p) = 1125p.
I went out with didi for the first time. I'm very happy. The team of four is really the best. We can help each other, share happiness and difficulties together. I hope there will be a strong tourist next time!
