    Closed on Sundays!

    by monina_c Updated Jul 27, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It is a bad idea to schedule your city trip on Sundays. The Palawenos are very religious and they also consider Sundays as their family day so most establishments are closed. We weren't able to visit :
    1. The Crocodile Farm
    2. Ka Lui's
    3. Puerto Princesa Museum

    If you land in PP on a Sunday and want to explore the city, you better ask the front desk of your hotel to check if the place you want to visit is open! : ) and then ask them for good alternatives!

    Malaria Alert!

    by asianbelle Written Mar 14, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Malaria carrying-mosquitoes are said to be endemic to the area. Although there is almost nil incidence of this disease in the city, it is still advisable to be on alert. While some travellers had anti-malaria shot or prophylaxis, I consulted my doctor who just advised me to apply mosquito repellant lotion liberally on exposed parts of my body every 4 hours.

    When going to the underground river, don't ever ever bring any plastic bags with you. Unless you want all monkeys inhabiting the place to have a feast. They think you're bringing them food.
