Cockfight Boracay Reviews
Mar 26, 2007
If you ever are in the Philippines you just have to see a Cockfighting match. Or Sabong as the locals call it. This is 2 roosters who are trying to kill each other, and the entire match is over in about 10secs, but the interlude is often 5minutes with shouting and betting.
But this is a must see if you are in the Philippines. Ask a local about where you can find it. In Boracay there is 2 stadiums ,but the most central one is located only 2minutes from D'mall (ask a local for direction)
PS. Dont move your hands when you talk to someone during the betting phase. because of the noise a lot of people use hand signs to say how much they are betting.
If you want any good pictures be prepared to have a camera which is good with high iso values or use the flash. Ive used ISO1600 to be able to get "a part of the action" on film. And ISO1600 is pretty noisy with most cameras
