The Subterranean Underground River in the River National Park is one of the most visited places among tourists The resembling religious-like images of stalactites and stalagmites are all breathtaking views. Cove dwelling faunas also dwell in the underground rivers and are eye catchers as well
The cool and calm waters in Palawan’s Subterranean Underground River give leeway for a wonderful banca trip down to the underground river. The river winds around limestone caverns that were carved from the precipitated waters. The underground river directly flows to the sea subjecting its cavern entrance to tidal influences
The rocky mountain that comprises the land forms of the park is covered with lush tropical rain forests. A small portion of the park is vegetated with karst limestone

palawan is a laidback place, some of my friends said there's nothing to do in puerto princesa. if we stay there, we'll just go to honda bay and underground river. thanks for another tip from my client... we should go to el nido. we availed tourA for the lagoons and beautiful beaches. it was amazing, real beauty of nature. i wish we can stay there for a few more days so we can try tourB(highlight is the snake island) and tourC (where the cathedral secret beach is). definitely, i'll go back. Of course before we travelled to el nido, we had a side trip at underground river

A good way to have a bird's eye view of Culion would be to go to the Culion Viewing Deck. Located in Pulang Lupa, it is still under construction although 6 huts which are a few hundred meters apart are already in place.
Each hut would provide a different view of the island. An ideal place to go on a picnic and have a siesta. A little bit of hiking is required though as the huts are quite apart from each other.

The TAO expedition was the biggest highlight of my Philippines trip. The boat goes from El Nido to Coron and stops at all the remote paradise islands and villages along the way. Eddie and Jack and the crew do everything to make it the experience unique, fun and memorable. The food is SO tasty and there is plenty of it. They know the areas where corals haven't been detroyed by dynamite and the snorkeling is fantastic. We stayed on a small island in a a village there and shared stories and talents around a bonfire. In the morning the village children would come out to play and show us around their land and homes.
If you are looking for a real genuine philippines experience off the main tourist route and you have an extra 3 days...DO IT! If you are palnning on going from el nido to coron anyway this is the perfect way to enjoy the experience instead of being stuck on a long uncomfortable ferry. You won't regret it!
