For ages I see images of Phuket on posters and TV ads, what was apparently the Phi Phi islands or Krabi...
I always had the idea that Phuket is a small island.

You see the postcards and they are labelled Phuket or Bali, but its actually a photo of a beach. The beaches are Miles away from the town...

This is not a thread about Asian islands, but the concept of islands....

People are always surprised when I tell them Cebu, Philippines is like Shanghai, if Manila is Beijing. They refer to Cebu as an Island destinations. I think 90 percent of filipinos who go to Cebu, do not even see the beaches. But the post cards give you the idea that Cebu is like a little island with coconut trees and nature.

Do you like islands or cities with beaches?
