Palawan Experience

Description

Palawan is the Philippines’ last frontier, a largely unexplored and unexploited province of wonderful scenery and idyllic tropical beauty. Beyond the centres of Coron, El Nido and Puerto Princesa, tourism has yet to penetrate much of this long, sword-shaped island to the southwest of Luzon, and on this short and exciting tour you will find a marvellous Jurassic landscape of coves, beaches, lagoons and razor-sharp limestone cliffs that rise from crystal-clear water. Offshore, there always seems to be an untouched reef to discover. The capital Puerto Princesa is the main entry point and is close to the mangrove islands of Honda Bay and the immense flooded cave systems that make up the mind-boggling Underground River.

Day 1
Manila to Palawan

Your adventure begins when you take a short flight from Manila to Puero Princesa. You will be met at the airport and taken to the Legend Palawan Hotel where you will stay for three nights. In the afternoon, tour the sights of the city, including the State College museum, the crocodile farm, the pineapple fibre weavers, the market and the Iwahigh Penal Colony, known as the prison without walls. Return to the hotel at the end of the tour and the evening is free..

Day 2
Palawan

After breakfast at your hotel you are taken to St Paul subterranean park where you are taken by paddle boat along a river into the eerie bat filled cavern of fluted columns and piped walls. The river is long but your visit will include only those areas that have been previously explored. All the time English speaking guides will help enhance the experience. Later you are taken by outrigger boat to Sabang for a delicious lunch served in a seaside resort. Then return to Puerto Princesa where the evening is free.

Day 3
Palawan

Today you are picked up at your hotel and taken to the pier to board a motor boat for a whole day island hopping excursion at Honday Bay, which has several islands and islets located off the mainland of Puerto Princesa. Visit Bat Island, home to thousands of bats that live on trees and fly out at night in search of food. Snake Island is so named because of its shape and other islands you stop at include Pandan, Starfish and Luli. There are ample opportunities for snorkellilng, swimming and sunbathing. Enjoy a picnic lunch on one of the islands before returning to the mainland.

Day 4
Depart Palawan

You have most of the day at Palawan to relax, soak up the sun, go shopping for souvenirs or see more of the sights before you are picked up and taken to the airport to catch the short flight back to Manila, where the tour comes to an end. This short trip makes a great add on to any longer holiday in the Philippines and takes you to one of the country's most beautiful and unexploited regions.
