Palawan Itinerary , Philippines

Palawan Vacation Travel Tips

When you arrived in the airport there are travel agencies offering accommodations with city tour packages. If you've already booked a place to stay then just go get the city tour package. It's a convenient way to see Puerto Princesa, the capital city of Palawan because there are limited vehicles to take you there.

We took the complete package with 3 days stay in a Pension House with City tour.

-Grilled chicken for Lunch at Balinsasayaw Inato Grill and Restaurant

-Dinner at the famous Kinabuch Grill where I had the exotic tamilok soak in vinegar. Tamilok is a special wood worm mollusk, now imagine that like almost a 12 inch long worm.

Second Day

We woke up early, took our complimentary breakfast and was ready for our tour before 6 Am.

Hired Van for City Tour inclusive Entrance Fees and Lunch Buffet.

Tourist Spots: 

First was at Crocodile Wildlife Rescue and Conversation Center where we saw breeding grounds for crocodiles and see them devour meat during feeding time.

Along the way we passed by Palawan's Fire Trees which were beautiful and the tour guide told us to wait till summer where the tree lights like the sun.
A one of a kind experience was being inside Iwahig Prison and Penal Farm where prisoners lived in peace and roams around the place like it's just another ordinary village.

Overlooking scenery at Mitra Ranch.

We grabbed a bite at Baker's Hill and played along with funny statues in the area. A great stop to buy pasalubong too! (or souvenirs).

See the islands of Palawan in Buenavista Viewing Deck and be amazed with the grandeur beauty of the Philippines.

An interesting site was the St. Paul Mountain Range where an image seemed to be carved in the moutain.

Lunch at the Beach with a fresh coconut on hand.

The amazing, bewitching, captivating and I can just go on and on with all 'ing' to describe the magical Underground River.

Experience to do weaving and see world class works in Binuatan Weaving Creations.
An authentic souvenir shop where you can buy triple the price in the market stuff at a very affordable price.

Dinner at the oh so famous Kalui Restaurant, a restaurant who doesn't allow footwear to used when dinning, a barefoot experience you'll never forget.

Nightlife and Chill time at Tiki Restobar to grab a few drinks and listen to good music.

Third Day

Half day city tour on our own. A tricycle ride will take you to the city proper:

Visit the Immacualte Concepcion Cathedral to give gratitude to such a wonderful and safe trip in the island.

I walk in Puerto Princesa City Baywalk and see the locals do their everyday life and bade the city goodbye.
