Picturesque Puerto Princesa

It’s more fun in the Philippines! It’s now time to feature one of our own. 🙂

Aptly nicknamed “the city in a forest,” Puerto Princesa city’s attractions have much to do with its natural wonders and commitment to the environment. In fact, it’s been named the Philippines’ cleanest and greenest city, and has been internationally recognized for environmental excellence. http://itsmorefuninthephilippines.com/puerto-princesa/

Beaches

Next to Boracay, Palawan is the most popular tourist spot for great beaches. Being an archipelago, the Philippines has a lot of pristine beaches that can easily compete with the best in the world. On our first day, we wanted to do the island hopping tour but we arrived past noon so they said it wasn’t feasible. We only had 3 days and our main goal was the subterranean river so we just gave up the island hopping tour. By now we should already know that 3 days is never enough to travel anywhere. Anyways, we just asked the driver to take us to a nice beach to watch the sunset and chill.

I already forgot the name of the beach but it was clean and quiet and we almost had it to ourselves.

Puerto Princesa Subterranean River

Also known as the Puerto Princesa Underground River. It is one of the New Seven Wonders of Nature and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. One of the river’s distinguishing features is that it emerges directly into the South China Sea and it also represents a significant habitat for biodiversity conservation.

I tell you, the pictures don’t give justice to the beauty and wonder you would witness inside. It’s eerie, being underground in total darkness surrounded by water, limestones, bats, and who knows whatever creatures are living there.

Sabang Beach

Sabang Zipline Experience. I’ve tried ziplining a couple of times before but so far this is the best! It’s 800 meters long and 150 feet above sea level, the view was absolutely breathtaking I didn’t want it to end.

Palawan has a lot more to offer. There’s still Coron and El Nido, but that’s for another story. R. 🙂
