A couple of weeks have already passed since I went on a Tao Expedition in Palawan, but I'm still hung up on the experience.
Palawan is beautiful, no one can argue with that.
In fact, in the latest survey of their readers, the Conde Nast Traveler has again included Palawan in the top 5 most beautiful islands in the world, where it once hogged the first place three years running.
While writing about my experience with Tao Expedition, though, I was distracted by a question from a couple of readers: is it possible to go on a DIY (do it yourself) tour of the Puerto Princesa Underground Riv ...
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 ...

Driving back to Sabang didn't have quite the same excitement as it did on the first attempt; much of the road had been traversed already. There's something inviting about knowing that every turn, every slight bend of the road would eventually reveal a new piece of terrain, or patch of jungle. Up until Teresa and I sped through Buena Vista for the third time in 24 hours, we didn't get that distinct pleasure that comes with a fresh road. While it was still a peaceful and beautiful drive, time speeds by quicker when you know exactly how long it'll take to reach a destination.

It was our first time to visit Puerto Princesa, Palawan, and we were amazed by its beauty. For this trip, we opted to stay in Sabang Beach area than in the city because we wanted to try the other side of Puerto Princesa, more quiet and relaxed.
Sabang Beach is like Boracay 20 years ago – imagine a long stretch of clean white sand without the crowd and without the numerous peddlers. The place is dreamy but of course, we will definitely return to Puerto Princesa to try Honda Bay island hopping and city tour the next time we come back.
Here are a few things we highly recommend for you to ...
