Puerto Princesa, Palawan

November 17,2017 Puerto Princesa, Palawan

Yes! We travel all the way to the south for staycation — Palawan πŸ€ͺ

Three main reasons:

  • We have a senior citizen companion (who’s not willing to go on adventure πŸ˜ͺ)
  • There’s a storm (Signal No. 1)
  • Place we stayed is SUPEEEEERRRRR nice! (beyond par! πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ)

BUT nevertheless, we enjoyed everything that there is. Besides, Palawan is not just limited to fun in beach and nature, but also gastronomic ones!

The purpose of this writing is mainly for my consumption in cases I would like to reminisce memories done at places we’ve been.

Day 1: City Tour

We arrived at Puerto Princesa around 1130 am via plane (Cebu Pacific). Luckily, we do not experience any flight delay making our tour precise and on time. HOWEVER! We arrived in a gloomy weather due to (surprise!) tropical depression. Thus making our tour a bit more difficult to enjoy.

My brother and I are up for adventure, instead of settling down with a pricey city tour, we stumbled upon tricycles in front of the airport that are DOTC Accredited.

Which means, they can officially and legally accommodate everyone to roam around the city in a VERY CHEAP price!

DOTC Accredited tricycles are lined up right across the airport mostly colored white and blue.

We hired Kuya Rommel. Feel free to contact him at 09198799501

  • CROCODILE FARM

Entrance fee: 40/head

Time consume: 15-20 minutes

What’s with: Crocodiles and wildlife

Palawan Wildlife Rescue and Conservation Center (Crocodile Farm) is our first stop.

Greetings says the crocodile. Located at their lobby entrance. 🐊🐊🐊

We entered their hatchery, see our beloved politicians (joke ✌🏽✌🏽✌🏾✌🏻), more crocodiles, and take picture with them!

We finished the tour by taking pictures with the crocodile. I’m scared enough to touch them gladly my brother is brave to hold it.

Time to take pictures! πŸ“Έ

Goodbye crocs!

  • MITRA’s RANCH

Entrance fee: 20/head

Time consume: 15-20 minutes

What’s with: View of Puerto Princesa City

It is owned by the family of the late Senator Ramon Mitra. Mitra’s ranch merely showcases green fields, view of the city, pictures of Mitra family and the house itself.

Barefoot. Before entering the ranch, you have to take off your shoes! β›Έβ›Έβ›Έ

Puerto Princesa City in a view!

Inside their house. It’s beginning to look like Christmas! β›„οΈπŸŽ„πŸŽ…πŸ½

  • Baker’s Hill

Entrance fee: free

Time consume: 15-20 minutes

What’s with: Bakery

Baker’s hill, from it’s name connotes something from baking, bake, cake, pastries, cupcakes and the like.

True enough. They serve all sorts of that. You can buy anything at an affordable price.

Plus! They have great place. See below for picture perfect bakerisque!

As you can see, floor’s wet and I’m with an umbrella still dripping!

We bought a loaf of bread for us to enjoy! πŸ₯ͺ🍞πŸ₯–

  • Butterfly eco-garden and Tribal Village

Entrance fee: 50/head

Time consume: 15-20 minutes

What’s with: Butterfly sanctuary and meeting of tribal natives

We are eager to see butterflies but due to moist and rain, we never saw much of them. 😞😣😞

They have a tribal village where indigenous people showcases their skills, tribal life and survival.

  • The baywalk

Entrance fee: free

Time consumed: 5-15 minutes

What’s with: baywalk and sea

Much more like the baywalk in Manila less the pollution, less the smell, less the view!

Palawan’s baywalk is nice beyond compare to Manila’s. They have clean water, with no garbage on sight, clean environment, definitely no smell, and nice view of the mountain.

  • Immaculate Conception Cathedral

Entrance fee: free

Time consumed: 30 mins – 1 hour

What’s with: Religious

Another must see is th
urch mos particularly the Immaculate Conception.

We arrived just in time for a mass and so we took advantage of it and we participated.

What a way to end a city tour! Off we go to Astoria Palawan! πŸš˜πŸš–πŸš–πŸš˜
