meeting of the salt water and fresh water.
The temperature of the waters in the Twin Lagoons also alternates between warm and cold, where the cold freshwater meets the hot salt water. It is very relaxing to just take a life jacket and just float and drift in the lagoon.

Going to Twin Lagoon, Coron Island, Philippines.
Just mention Coron to any Filipino and their eyes light up at the thought of it. Many Filipinos have never been there themselves, but they'll confidently declare that Coron is the most beautiful place in the Philippines. Travel + Leisure even named Palawan, the province that Coron is part of, as the world's best island. Needless to say, we were excited to visit the island that made so many go gaga over it. After spending two weeks hopping around Coron Town and on islands around it, we've come up with the top adventurous things to do in Coron that you shouldn't miss when you visit.

The vibrational hum of the propeller engines shifts from a constant high buzz to a low drone as our plane dips into a descent. As we pass through the haze, I look out the window and see perfect island after perfect island. Like giant turtles, these islands breach the ocean surface, bursting with fluffy, bright green vegetation. Their circumference is a thin line of bright white sand that cuts into the emerald-green water, before changing to azure then dark blue as it becomes the deep ocean. I'm excited about island hopping throughout this incredible archipelago.
Our plane banks sharply and ...
I'm too excited to share my Coron trip with my sister to end my blog post that way. So Coron is a first class municipality in the province of Palawan, Philippines, comprising the eastern half of Busuanga Island, all of Coron Island and about 50 other minor islets stretching as far as Tara Island in the north-east and Canipo Island in the south. All these islands are part of the Calamian Archipelago in Northern Palawan that separates the South China Sea from the Sulu Sea. According to the 2010 census, it had a population of 42,941 people. (Of course, I got that info from Wikipedia. Hahaha)
Up next is the Twin Lagoon.

It may not be as clear as Kayangan, but one thing's for sure: the water here is clearer than most. Take a look at these pictures we have of us sitting on our life vests. The water is so clear that you can literally see right through it. In Kat's picture, it's almost as if there's no water at all.
Also, it was a lot colder than Kayangan, but only in some areas. If you moved even j ...
In April of this year, I chanced upon a seat sale flight to Coron by SkyJet Airlines. The said airline had also promotions on its flights to Batanes, but the fare was still expensive. I got my round trip ticket to Coron for P1,942.80. It was my first time to book a flight and that being said (because of this "there is always a first time" thing), I forgot to consider the time of my flights, departure from Manila was 14:10 and from Busuanga 12:00H, not ideal if you want to maximize your 3D2N stay. Because of that, I had to carefully plan my do-it-yourself itinerary to be able to make the most o ...
