Malapascua is one of my favorite trips of all times. The total cost of this amazing trip was a whopping $69.00 round trip on Cebu Pacific. It was only a 4 hour flight from Busan, Korea to Cebu. If we attempted to do this trip from the United States, it would be over $1K per person and 24+ hours of travelling.

We landed in Cebu (Mactan International Airport). The next morning, we hired a driver to take us 3 hours to the port. We had to take a boat to get to another boat. Yes, a boat to a boat.

We spent one magical night on one of the most beautiful tiny islands. As it is only 1+ mile in length!  The beaches were full of sand and not of people, unlike the neighboring island of Boracay.
