Why are you more prefer phillippine island than thailand?
I've been to Boracay too. But also Palawan (El Nido) and Coron Island are great!
In the Philippines the sand is often whiter and the water clearer. Philippines has thousands of Islands with absolutely no people, so there is lots of untouched nature and not much tourism. But Thailand is full of Russian and german tourists lol

The area of the tower in the 1980s. The LWT + Mall are now in the right part of the picture, at the crossroads.

That's amazing - in the 1980s, the area where the LWT is now was just a grassy field!

The tower is a beauty but the two buildings beside it (shoppingmall & ?) look like a toaster and a deep fryer.

Photos taken yesterday. As you can see, the construction of the 5th (out of probably seven) crown floor is almost over. Two floors to go! I'm so pumped

Today's picture, they've already started builing the 6th crown floor. That went faster than I expected. This building might actually top out in March.
