Taraw Peak, also called Taraw Cliff, is one of the highest points in El Nido. "Taraw" is a Cuyunon (Palawan's dialect) word for mountains. These "taraws" you see in El Nido are actually limestone karst, inside those you find the ingredient or the most expensive food in the world- Nido Soup or locally known as "Balinsasayaw.

In this post, however, I will share a suggested 2-week Palawan itinerary, budget, activities, and contact details based on my personal experiences; I hope that they will be helpful to those planning to explore Palawan.
In today's video we're visiting 5 islands in El Nido Palawan along with some hidden beaches! We'll also show you the beautiful Matinloc Shrine located on one of the islands!
I think scaling mountains on our anniversary is an unspoken thing. It's never in our intention to hike every anniversary, but it happens all the time.
I guess, part of it is the need to pause from climbing the corporate ladder and have a breather. Another part is simply because we have always been in constant search for adventure and we love doing offbeat things together.

If there will be a place that I would like to go back to, it will be El Nido Palawan. I've shown you some of my travels and adventures for 2016, which includes Hongkong, Boracay, Zambales, Bicol, Coron, etc…but, I never posted the first adventure I've made in January of 2016 which triggered my wanderlust and passion for travel and photography.
It's also the reason behind my solo travel in Coron, Palawan which is the other side of El Nido. It made me very curious how these two beautiful places in Palawan are different and unique from each other.
I've mentioned how beautiful Coron is, in ...
