Sunday, November 24, 2013
People come to Puerto Princesa for a relaxing holiday, no pollution here, trees everywhere, green plains, clean rivers, serene beaches.  I was just having a nice talk with a friend, owner of my favorite native woodworks shop at the LRC tiangge, he was telling me Palawan will be having its new airport soon, which means it’s got to be a better boost for the province’s tourism industry.  After all, Palawan is a place that we should be proud of, it’s clean, it’s nature bound, fresh air, it’s the last frontier.

Although there are a lot of things to see and get amazed with in this part of the country, there are two popular things that visitors to Puerto Princesa should not miss.  Island hopping at Honda Bay and one of the 7 Natural Wonders of the World -  TheUnderground River.

In addition to that, people always asks for the City Tour.  So what’s the city tour?

Itinerary include: (Click on the items to see more details):

Immaculate Concepcion Church or “The Cathedral
Palawan Wildlife Rescue and Conservation Center or “TheCrocodile Farm
Butterfly Farm
Binuatan Creations

These are the standard 4-hour itinerary, but some visitors to the city especially those in groups opt for 8-hour tour and some design their own itinerary which go beyond the standard list above.

The city tour is a good introduction to the city of Puerto Princesa and most tour operators and hotels offer this on guests arrival.  My opinion, unless visitors did not come from a long haul flight, the city tour is fine, otherwise, it would be a drag for people who just arrived and tired from a long-haul international flight.

City Tour Transports
Join a group, Aircon Van, 4-hour (from your hotel)
Private, A/C Van Rental for groups, 4-hour, available at any tour operators in Puerto Princesa.     
Private,  Non-A/C multicab rental good for group of 10 persons.     


If you just want to see the Crocodile Farm, you can always hop on a public transport multicab heading for Iwahig Penal Colony, from the city center, pay only 10 pesos to get there.
