  • Puerto Princesa Palawan Trade Your Time For Precious Memories

    We've been to other places together before, but this was the first one that there were only the two of us. And most of our trips were spontaneous. Unplanned. Go with the flow whatever comes our way because it is unfailingly more fun that way.

    So yes, it was yet another spontaneous trip and this time it's in Puerto Princesa. We did have a plan before we went there, but due to unexpected delays, we dropped everything and decided to just go with the flow of time and space.

    It was a short yet sweet visit to this mountainous province in the western part of the Philippines. Puerto Princesa, fi ...

  • Discovering Palawan In 2 Days

    My first Palawan experience was a blast! Even though it was only for two days, we were able to visit few tourist spots and had some island hopping. It was a two days full of non stop tour and we really made the most of our time. Though due to time constraints we had only toured destinations in Puerto Princesa area which gives me more reason to go back and explore other places especially Coron and El Nido. Of course, I won't be keeping those happy thoughts with me, so let me share with you my 2 -day Palawan Escapade :) .

    Originally, Palawan is not included in my travel itinerary for this yea ...

  • Puerto Princesa Palawan The Home Of One Of The 7 Wonders Of Nature

    My sisters "by heart" and I have been dreaming to go together on a trip for a long time already. And one of the struggles in planning this kind of tour is how our scheds would match, so surely, one of the solutions that we could possibly think of would be to book an actual ticket that will instantly be paid so that nobody could back out because "Bayad na eh! Sayang naman diba?" So we were very fortunate that Manejkom Travel & Tours was able to offer us with a Puerto Princesa Barkada Package for a very cheap price which we didn't let go! We instantly booked with Manejkom Travel & Tours wherein ...

  • Island Hopping At Honda Bay Puerto Princesa

    There is an irony when you hear of the province of Palawan in the Philippines – regarded as one of the country's top tourist destination, Palawan is a place renowned for being least developed among other tourist destinations in the country, even in the whole of South-East Asian region.

    However, tourist sites found all over Palawan are not known for their modernization – no, they are not. It is something more natural, not man-made.

    After all, for a region mostly known for its clear water and white sandy beaches, among other places of interest that are all nature's own making, the prov ...

  • Exploring Honda Bay

    I've been to both El Nido and Coron, but have yet to explore the nearby destinations in Puerto Princesa. For this trip to my favorite island, I finally go to explore Honda Bay. Despite the bad weather, the trip went well and I had a good time.

    Pambato Reef

    The first stop of the Honda Bay tour was Pambato Reef to see colorful fish and corals. Our group was fortunate enough to arrive early before the weather went bad to worse. After swimming around and keeping our heads in the water, the rain started to fall. It wasn't just a drizzle but as the cliche goes, it was raining cats and dogs. Th ...
