The Great Palawan Getaway

Posted by on 4. May 2008

Took the chance on a long Labor Day weekend to have our Great Palawan Getaway… and Puerto Princesa, Palawan was as quite a great getaway and has so much to offer… It was so preserved that being here is more of a nature appreciation trip and a nice relaxing vacation… but the clear air and the nice provincial ambience provides a much needed fresh air… and the food was great…
.
Day 1 had us taking city tour around Puerto Princesa, Palawan with stops at Crocodile Farm (the crocs were really scary)… Butterfly Sanctury (Quite a colorful scene butterflies and the flowers create)… Mitra Ranch (A nice overlooking view of Palawan)…
.
Day 2 was spent at Dos Palmas… A nice classy place to be… Had Snorkling (So many variety of colorful fishes here), Kayaking (tiring but fun) and some swimming here… It has a nice beach front and the amenities are great… After the day, had been a bit tanned and really tired but it was well worth it…
.
Day 3 was a breathtaking tour of the Underground river… A long two hour van ride to the place The queue to the river was quite long as many really want to get a peak at this wonderful attraction… When we got our chance, we were awed by the natural beauty of the place and the cave is really a must see attraction in the Philippines and is in fact one of the candidates for New 7 wonders of nature… It rained on our way back but knowing how preserved the place was, the rain was a nice shower… Had Swimming after in Sabang Area…
.
Had dinner at Ka Lui, also a must visit here since the food and ambience is great. In fact, you still have to reserve in order to eat here… A nice dinner to cap our getaway… The next day was our trip back much refreshed but still tired from all the exploring but it was I guess all part of what made the getaway a great breather but it also leaves us a sense of pride that there’s wonderful places like Palawan is so much naturally endowed and preserved as well… =>
