From NAIA Terminal 3 via Cebu Pacific, we arrived at the Puerto Princesa International Airport after about an hour from Metro Manila. We were picked up by our driver going to Astoria Palawan, our home for the next four (4) days.
Our lunch upon arrival:
After a short rest, we swam, went kayaking, paddle boarding and biking.
We started our second day exploring one of the seven wonders of the world, The Puerto Princesa Underground River. Located in the Saint Paul mountain range, it’s the longest subterranean river in the planet accessible to man. The cave has a medley of stalactites, stalagmites, several large chambers, and lots of bats. A spiritual experience… We are truly awed by God’s creation.
After, we paddled along the mangrove forest, which serves as filter and keeps chemicals and mud from reaching the sea. It’s a dwelling place for other marine species and it’s a perfect location where fish lays its eggs.
On our third (3rd) day, we had our city tour covering the Crocodile farm,
Baker’s hill (bought delicious hopia monggo and other sweets),
Butterfly Eco-garden and Tribal Village(where we met the Palaw’ans introducing us to their culture),
Immaculate Concepcion Cathedral
and Plaza Cuartel.
Later at night, we went to Iwahig firefly watching tour (with star gazing).
On our fourth (4th) and last day, we just played and swam in the newly opened Palawan waterpark by Astoria.
Another summer fun adventure!
