Island hopping and snorkeling at the beautiful uncrowded Busuanga Island, Palawan, Philippines.
When reality is better than your dreams? thats what I felt the moment my feet stepped into the paradise of Coron, Palawan.
Coron is one of the most famous destination in the Philippines. Coron is an easy pick for families, couples and vacationers simply because of its beauty.

What if you only had three days and two nights to get away and take a break?
Well, booking a flight to Busuanga and experiencing Coron, Palawan is totally worth it and within schedule. After my last Coron trip in August, I didnt think another one during the off-peak season was in my horizon. With a little help from Skyjet Airlines, after a short 30-minute flight on the 90-seater BAE-146 aircraft, I found myself in island paradise again.
For a frequent flier, I am deathly afraid of turbo propeller aircrafts. Thankfully, Skyjet Airlines has the fastest jet service to Busuanga with the larg ...
DIYIf there's one beach paradise in the Philippines, I will not get tired of coming back over and over again - it is Coron in Palawan. I went there for a press trip two years ago but did not have much time to blog about it. That's why I am so thankful for Donna Luague who agreed to share her DIY travel guide to Coron for 5 days and 4 nights.
