International travel magazine Conde Nast Traveler selected the resort island of Boracay as the world’s top winter escape destination, Good News Pilipinas posted on December 23.

“Voted the world’s top island in our 2017 Reader’s Choice Awards, this itty-bitty speck (just under four square miles) in the western Philippines is as close to a tropical idyll as you’ll find in Southeast Asia, with gentle coastlines and Instagram-worthy sunsets,” the magazine stated after including the island in its “30 Most Beautiful Winter Escapes in the World.”

Likewise, the magazine commended Boracay’s thriving night scene; making it another attraction for tourists.

Baja California Sur in Mexico, Cape Town in South Africa and Hawaii are also in the mag’s top 30 list.

Last October, Conde Nast Traveler also picked Boracay, together with Cebu and Palawan, as the top three best islands in the world outside the US.

Boracay and Palawan were also recognized by Travel+Leisure magazine as the third and first island in the world respectively; selected by its readers.
