I went to something different last weekend (Thu-Sat/28-30 Oct) and it was the best weekend get away ever. Yes! I've been to "Finest Beach of all Asia" and the "Number One Tropical Beach in the World" -- the White Sand Beach (or Long Beach) in Boracay Island.
E'erbody... here's the world's famous beach in jpeg, you judge for yourself ;-)
Stayed in this lovely beachfront place - Boracay Mandarin Island Hotel - expensive but well worth :)
