In the middle of our trip my dad took us to Palawan for 4 days. It was amazing! Humid, but amazing! 😆
It was cloudy and raining most of our time there but we didn’t let that get us down. We stayed at this hotel called Balay Tuko and loved the homey feel of the place. They served us breakfast every morning with a pitcher of calamansi juice and it was delicious!
On our first day there we decided to do a city tour and it was great to see different parts of Puerto Princesa. We stopped at many historic sites including a park that was part of World War 2 history, a gorgeous home owned by a governor that overlooked the island, a butterfly sanctuary, and a crocodile farm. The last 2 were really scary for me lol. Make fun of me, go ahead! 😅
Our second day we decided to go on the underground river tour. It was absolute pouring rain that day but luckily the Coast Guard said it was still safe to go. I was blown away! But the bats, not so much. They’re just like birds with all their flapping so we don’t like each other lol. Despite the bats, the caves were a sight to see. God’s hand in our Earth was definitely evident in that place, it reminded me of how wonderous nature can be.
Our last full day we decided to go island hopping in Honda Bay. I was looking forward to this part of our trip because of all the things my relatives were telling me about Pandan Island. We almost didn’t get to go because the Coast Guard said it was too choppy to go out that far, but our captain said it wasn’t bad so he risked it and I’m so glad he did! It was so worth it! The beach was beautiful, the water was crystal clear, and the seafood was so fresh and delicious!
Just in our trip to Palawan I took over 350 pictures and videos! I hope these photos entice you to visit this beautiful place. The Philippines has a lot to offer!
