In 100 Words: LaBoracay

Thousands of tourists troop to Boracay to celebrate Labor Day Weekend, in what is now known to many as ‘LaBoracay’.

For many working-class citizens, Labor Day is a special occasion that pays tribute to the blue-collar men and women of society. But in the Philippines, Labor Day means something else.

In a beach paradise that is Boracay, teenagers and young adults troop to this island to not only relax, but also to party, play and drink the stress away. ‘LaBoracay’, as it is popularly called, attracts thousands of tourists on a yearly basis during Labor Day Weekend, and is typically the high point of summer in the said island.

This year’s ‘LaBoracay’ is expected to be even bigger. And with more tourists arriving, there is no question that ‘LaBoracay’ is everybody’s summer highlight.
