In half a day we'd left the tranquil jungle and river of Loboc, hopped on a ferry and landed in bustling Cebu City which was a massive contrast with people everywhere and horrible traffic jams, not to mention the smell of sewage, especially in our hotel bathroom. Luckily we just had to hang around a day till our flight to Puerto Princesa on Palawan Island. From where we got a van to the fishing village of Port Barton.
