Kalibo International Airport serves the vicinity of Kalibo and the island of Boracay. It is recognized as a rapidly-expanding airport, serving more international destinations than local ones. Located about two miles from Kalibo’s main city, the Airport handles airlines flying to major Asian cities including Seoul-Incheon, Shanghai, Taipei, and Singapore, as well as domestic cities including Manila and Cebu.
Its nearest city is Kalibo, the capital of Aklan province in the Philippines. The vast majority of its population is Filipino, and Aklanon is the dominant language. English is not widely spoken, although it may be understood. With a considerably advanced technological infrastructure, Kalibo is considered the education hub of Aklan.
To reach Kalibo Airport from the city, the tricycle is the most popular option. A sidecar attached to the side of a motorbike, this interesting mode of transport is also the cheapest way to get around. The jeepney is another quirky yet quintessential transport option. Public shuttle vans, called L3s, can also take you to the Airport, although it departs only when all its seats are filled.
This colourful district is full of energy, evidenced by its love for cultural festivals. Catch its most famous Ati-Atihan Festival, dubbed “the mother of all Philippine festivals”, which celebrates and worships the Holy Child Santo Niño. Experience this exhilarating parade of Ati-atihan tribes in their bright costumes flocking the streets of the city. While here, try the local cuisine called Binakol nga Manok, savory spring chicken cooked in sweet coconut water.
Tigayon Hill Cave
Situated near Kalibo’s main city, this restored mangrove is known as the “Green Pearl of the Orient”. Here, marine and swamp wildlife thrives on 790 hectares of land, with a nature trail to guide green enthusiasts through its lush regions. It is a recipient of the Golden Eagle Award (1996) for being one of the best environmental sites in Asia.
This luxurious island is one of the gems of the Philippines, drawing locals and foreigners alike with its magnetic charm. Lined by shores of clear turquoise waters and pearly sand, Boracay is the ultimate getaway. Zip through the ocean while riding on a wakeboard, and retreat at any one of the manicured bungalows inland. Boracay is accessible by ferry from Caticlan Port, 42 miles from Kalibo Airport.
Just a few hours away by flight is this buzzing mecca of food, shopping, and pop culture. Head down the streets of Gangnam for an unrivaled shopping experience, explore the cafes in Myeongdong, and visit the film sites of your favorite dramas. While here, take a trip to the offshore island of Jeju for some fresh air and fresher seafood.
For an entirely different experience, head to Beijing, the capital of China. Get a first-hand look at how the most rapidly-evolving country today has preserved its thousand year-old heritage. Climb the heralded Great Wall for an unparalleled vista of its rolling hills, and view the ancient chambers of the Forbidden City up-close. Don’t forget to guard against the fabled curse of the terracotta warriors!
This island-city is another favourite for travelers from the Philippines. There is much to see and do here, from feasting on succulent spicy seafood to appreciating the fine arts in its twin “durian” theater, the Esplanade. Pay a visit to the city’s innovative Gardens by the Bay, an interesting blend of exotic plants and manmade superstructures that tower like giant glowing trees.
