Cambodia: Sihanoukville

Cambodia is a tiny Asian country that is not as known for Western tourists as neighboring Vietnam or Thailand. Meanwhile, here you can also find beaches you see in the Bounty ad: with white sand and palm trees. The main resort town in Cambodia is Sihanoukville, which is already called the second Pattaya. In addition to daytime entertainment (you can, for example, go fishing in the local bay), there are many nightclubs. It's definitely worth traveling here if you want both exotics and high-quality service, and if you want to relax on the beach and do not mind to go on interesting excursions. If you’ve been dating a divorced Ukrainian woman for a while, you may want to travel with her to some unusual place. Sihanoukville is definitely that place.

Review: The Ruf Resto Bar at Ferra Hotel Boracay

From our comfy room at the second floor, we took the elevator to Ferra Hotel's fourth and topmost level. It was past 7 PM and we were already hungry for some chow after a long day of exploring the island. As soon as we set foot in the hotel's roofdeck, we were instantly captivated by the Ruf Restobar's cool and breezy ambiance. It was the kind of chill and vibe that Boracay Island is famously known for.

Situated a few minutes of walk away from D'Mall, White Beach Station 2 and Bulabog Beach, Ferra Hotel is conveniently located far away from the noisy beachfront bars and crowd. The Ruf, perched on the hotel's roofdeck offers open air dining with its choices of Asian dishes and signature cocktails.

A Review of Ferra Hotel in Boracay

Boracay, situated in Malay, Aklan, has long been hailed as one of the world's best island destinations. Its 4-kilometer stretch of powdery white sands lined with world-class beach resorts has drawn both local and foreign tourists year round. Along with these are the rows of restaurants and bars, exciting water sports and lively parties which made Boracay the Philippines' top tourist attraction.

When in Boracay, it is important to choose the right accommodation to make sure you have a comfortable and enjoyable stay. With plenty of hotels, inns and pension houses sprawled around the island, the choices can be pretty confusing.

During our recent family vacation in the island, we were very fortunate to have been booked at Ferra Hotel. Situated at Sitio Bulabog in Barangay Balabag, Ferra Hotel offers comfortable rooms, excellent facilities and services and most of all, friendly and helpful staff.

Here's our experience at Ferra Hotel Boracay...
