Idyllic sunsets, crystal clear blue water, and powdery sand are among the things that best describe Boracay.

Even though the island underwent rehabilitation for six months and was reopened to tourists in October 2018, the island is still one of the best in Asia, according to Conde Nast Traveler’s 2019 Readers’ Choice Awards.

Conde Nast Traveler recorded 600,000 voters who weighed in on the world’s best travel destinations.
