How to Avoid More Boracays
           Whenever I enumerate some of the leading tourism destinations, especially to domestic tourists, I try to single out the less trodden places like Siquijor, Malapascua, Camiguin, Camotes, Pagudpud, San Vicente (Palawan), Coron, Kalamgaman (Eastern Visayas), Guimaras, Sicogon, San Juan (La Union) and Baler (Aurora).  I intentionally omit mentioning the over-visited and over-rated Boracay.  My fond wish is that the numerous island destinations that are now increasingly accessible, thanks to improvement in infrastructures (notably the Philippine nautical highway), will not follow the way of Boracay.
