There are 5 UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the Philippines: Tubbataha Reef National Marine Park, the Rice Terraces of the Philippines Cordilleras, the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park, the Historic Town of Vigan, and the Baroque Churches of the Philippines.
In 2011, I, along with a few other photographers and filmmakers, were tasked to document these sites as part of a project with UNESCO and the ICT Office of the Department of Science and Technology, Philippines.
We had already gone to Tubbataha Reef and the Rice Terraces; both of immea ...
Firstly, for the record the Philippines may well be the best country in the world to travel in. Having been to 194 of the 197 countries on the planet, it most certainly is in the top 10 at the very least. Super gorgeous, amazing people, easy to get around, paradise at every corner, really great value, English speaking for the most part. It's travel perfection.
So now then. Palawan, the Philippines biggest draw. The question seems to always be El Nido or Coron when chatting about Palawan, but hardly anyone ever talks about Sabang beach in Palawan, and what a mistake the travel world seems to ...
Located in Brgy. Sabang in Puerto Princesa City in the province of Palawan, Mangrove Paddle Boat Tour is another must try activity in the city.
Mangrove Paddle Boat Tour is the brain child of the slain environmentalist Jerry Ortega. It's aim is to help the locals via sustainable tourism. Aside from earning, the locals also help their community by educating visitors about the importance of mangroves.
This tour is a great secondary tour or side tour if you are planning to do the Puerto Princesa Underground River Tour. The Mangrove Paddle Boat Tour takes about less than an hour and is locat ...
Our paddle boat tour in the protected area of sabang mangroves is really unexpected. This only came up as a suggestion from our tour guide so as not to waste our time waiting in the long queue of tourists going to the world-famous underground river (FYI: the sabang area serves as the "gateway" to the underground river). We grabbed this opportunity of exploring the area, since according to the guide, a very rich biodiversity is thriving there. The tour costs around Php. 300 to 400 per person (forgot the exact amount) and inclusive of a boatman and an exclusive local guide. It is interesting to ...
If you ever feel like getting out of Puerto Princesa for a day, you may want to consider going on a day trip to Sabang, Palawan.
Sabang, Palawan is most famous for the Subterranean River (aka Underground River), one of the Seven New Wonders of the World. Far away from the main attraction is Sabang's best-kept secret: long, endless, secluded coastline!
How to get there:
You can hire a tricycle from anywhere in the city to the "New Market" terminal in San Jose. I paid P60 for the trip from where I was staying (near Robinson's Place) to the terminal. There are two ways to get to Sabang: ...
It was the day after the underground river and time for another adventure. This time it was in a mangrove and we were going to see some wildlife. Hopefully at least. Like most things I encountered on Palawan, I didn't really know what this was. It was a mangrove tour and we were going early.
This is something else you can easily do on your own. You walk down the beach to the right if you're facing the water. Keep right so towards the end you are walking behind the trees. The road keeps going this way and you will get to a little stand where you'll have to pay some fee. It's not very much, d ...
