An Enviromentalist's Dream - Clean and Green City
No malls. Maybe thats a good thing!
Beautiful all around.
We booked a travel package for our Underground River trip. As first timers it will be hard for us to go to underground river by ourselves so what we did is to get a tour in our lodging place. Its a very educational trip knowing that there are stalagmites and stalactites inside the cave. We stop by to other tourist destination like the View-deck,...more
The best vacation ever in my life. Puerto Princesa, Palawan indeed is the cleanest or one of the cleanest city in the Philippines. I love the white beaches in Alimanguan, San Vicente Palawan. Second, Underground River is worth visiting, we've been here before it was included in the Seven Wonders.more
Pristine Beach is the best one for swimming in Puerto Princesa.Its one of the few beaches around the city that"s why during holidays & weekends its full of Pinoys(slang for Filipinos).Its just walking distance from the airport,but if you dont like walking just grab a motorcycle(pedicad) and tell the driver to Pristine Beach.more

Ka Lui's- one of the best restaurant in Palawan, with nice ambience.

That could be the reason why people keep on coming back to this place.The food are not...more

I love the view this restaurant have. Located in a mangrove with the clear blue sea as far as your eyes can see.The food is good too. Price is not that bad. The staff are ok, but very busy. There were a lot of people when we were there on Dec. 30, 2009. It seem a bit far from the center of the city which is why you need to hire a local cab called...more
This place was great, from the moment we walked in the ambience was very upbeat, not a stuffy restaurant. Many tourists, in fact, majority were foreigners. Just remember to take off your shoes before entering the dining area. I really enjoyed all of the food. Their Green Mango Juice was excellant...But what made the dinner unforgettable was the...more

Palawan has over 140 species that are native to the island and quite often you can see Palawenos (natives who live in the hills) wandering the streets of Puerto Princesa selling orchids at a very cheap price indeed, so if you have friends in Manila, they will make a wonderful gift. There are several garden centers (or similar) that will also sell orchids.
Even new species of orchids have been found growing on the slopes of Mount Mantalingahan, the highest mountain in Palawan. There were also new species of butterfly discovered there in recent years.
SANDFLIES, known locally as NIK-NIKS are common on many of the beaches of Palawan, especially Sabang, Port Barton and El Nido. Sandflies are very tiny (1-2mm) but don't sting you--- they bite, but you will not notice the bite until it is too late. Ten minutes later you will start scratching but this should be avoided as you may end up with a big...more
The stonefish (which belongs to the scorpion group of fish, such as the lionfish) lurks around Palawan's beaches in as little as a meter of water and you will know when you stand on one. It is one of the most poisonous fish in the ocean and can kill you if you have a weak heart. It has a big head, a warty body, sometimes covered in algae and to...more
At certain times of the year the sea around Palawan will have many jellyfish (January-March) which can give you a sting, rather like a prick from a pin. However the quantities of jellyfish are diminishing due to fishing, and there are quite a few jellyfish buying stations around the island that reportedly collect 20-30,000 umbrellas a day (heads...more

This islands in between of Coron and El Nido, but the place is authentically tropical and very untouch..
I spend a few days cycling up and down Palawan and it's one of the better places i have cycled in the Philippines.The roads are in a pretty good state and traffic is quite soft compared to most other places i have cycled in the Philippines.You should still watch out for trucks and busses on the road as they can drive quite agressive at times, but...more
I went to palawan. It was amazing. From flying on to a small airstrip to my last moments enjoying the views I felt very lucky to been there once. I stayed at El Nido which was something special. So many great places in the Philippines to have minute by minute adventures. Nov - Jan are the months that are the most comfortable as it does get hot. Its...more
Summer's from March to May. Nice time to enjoy the beach and get tanned. Plus the sea water is calm during these months.If you are planning to go to Puerto Princesa and doesn't have a tight budget, you may consider Dos Palmas. If you're budget conscious, there are nice hotels in the city like Hotel Fleuriz and Legend Hotel.more
