How can I travel to BORACAY ISLAND from BANGKOK w/o flying??

I am planning a trip for 5 days to Boracay Island in December 2013 with my friends and we dont want to make it very expensive. Is there any way by which we can travel to Boracay Island from Bangkok by taking a ferry or jetty? Basically we want to avoid the expense of flying. We will be travelling from New Delhi to Bangkok by flight but we dont want to take another flight from Bangkok to Boracay.

Nope. Just visit the beaches in Thailand if you have a limited budget.

If there was a boat service you probably wouldnt even save any money as the trip would take some time and you would need to pay for accomodation and meals on board.

Look at Cebu Pacific, Philippine Airlines,Thai Airlines, and Kuwait Airways for the best fares. I suspect Cebu Pacific will have the best fares.

Firstly, no boat service between them.

Even if there is, I would not take it as you make need weeks of travel and maybe passing by Spratly!

Like others have advised, fly. Wait for promo fair and the airline fares are quite competitive at times.

Book flights now and they will probably be cheaper but it is the most popular time of the year.

During my younger days, I fantasised about a land journey from Singapore to Australia, thru the length of Java and catching a boat trip from Bali... Suffice to say, it stayed a fantasy... :)

But this clearly tops it!
