Heck, when it comes to Coron, four times still won't cut it. This little tourist town in Palawan one of the first destinations we set foot in as travel bloggers, but even after three more visits, we still can't get enough of it. Its jagged corners are bursting with natural beauty and cultural significance: from the lakes and lagoons of Coron Island, to neighboring beaches, to shipwreck dive sites and coral gardens, to saltwater hot springs, to postcard-worthy views from its mountaintops. Heck, they even have an African Safari nearby.

Palawan cannot be described in a single page. There is so much to see and talk about that I have to depict its beauty piece by piece. Let's start with Coron, found in the northern part of Palawan.

Each of the island has a name given by the Tagbanua, the oldest ethnic groups in the Philippines.
After few hours, we safely arr ...
Palawan is the country's cleanest and most peaceful city. I have witnessed that during my 4 days stay in Coron. It has been dubbed the "last ecological frontier" in honor of it's unique ecological balance. It has a land area of 1.5 million hectares, composed of 1,780 islands and islets, and subdivided into 23 municipalities. One of these municipalities is Coron which is located in the Calamianes Group of islands in Northern Palawan.
