    If both Conde Nast and Travel and Leisure call a place the "most beautiful island in the world", you simply have to check it out. Meet Palawan, an island region in the Philippines. I was in the country for TBEX, the world's largest travel blogger conference. And I just couldn't resist taking a side trip for some Palawan island hopping, to see if the rumours about its beauty were true. Spoiler alert: Totally, absolutely and unequivocally true.

    Tropical Wonder

    The speedboat zips through the water, leaving a trail of froth behind it. The watercraft bobs up and down as it hits the waves and the salty water splashes in for a ride, hitting the faces of nature-deprived tourists from the big city. From a distance, an island clears into view, half of its shores surrounded by white sand while the other by sharp limestone rocks. As the boat nears it, every passenger gasps in amazement at the sight of the clear turquoise waters. Pulling out his/her phone and camera, each astonished guest snaps a photo (or two or 20) of the jaw-dropping, totally Instagrammable ...

    A Dream Vacation In Club Paradise Coron Palawan

    Waking up at two in the afternoon is a regular thing for me. It's been a year since I've change my sleeping routine because of work. It was a Sunday, I got up and cooked late lunch. While I was sitting at my table, I remembered something. A memory that seems like a dream. Six hours ago (as we were writing this article), I was waving goodbye to the very accommodating crew of Club Paradise in Palawan.

    Two days ago …
    We arrived at Busuanga around 9:45am. It was a 45 minute or less flight. Coron is located at the northern ...

  • Large Fruit Bats That Looks Like Leaves On Trees

    From a distance, they look like leaves on the trees but as you take a little closer you'll see these large fruit bats hanging upside down. I tried to get closer. They weren't dangerous but just be careful not to get pooped on. It's amazing to watch them fly in and out of the island, they go in groups so make sure you have your camera handy while you're there.
