DIY Puerto Princesa Tour << click for detailed info

Our hotel (Check out some Puerto Princesa Hotels) also offered a city tour but we opted for a DIY tour by foot (sometimes hailed a tricycle). They offered a half day city tour but we like to experience a different adventure and we do like to save money as well.   We walk the streets of Puerto Princesa like a local.

We went to NCCC first to buy a bottled water since we know how hot it can go travelling on foot. We were also a little curious on how NCCC Palawan looks like as we have one in Davao City.

We were surprise that they have a count-down stop lights. Just like in Davao, they also have anti-smoking law.

Visit The Puerto Princesa Underground River << click for detailed info

The Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park is situated about 50 km north of Puerto Princesa city in Palawan.


The Puerto-Princesa Subterranean River National Park features a spectacular limestone or karst landscape. It contains an underground river that flows directly to the sea. The lower half of the river is brackish and subject to ocean tide. The associated tidal influence on the river makes this a significant natural phenomenon. The river’s cavern exhibits dramatic speleothems and several large chambers of as much as 120m wide and 60m high. Its accessibility and navigability up to 4.5km inland allows it to be experienced by the general public, who can view the magnificent rock formations on a river cruise unequalled by any other similar experience elsewhere in the world.
