MARI

BEACHFRONT

My roommates, (Me), Alyza, Maricon and Rose 🙂

We have our dinner at Siena hotel, where we have also our seminar. The speaker describes the status of tourism in Palawan and the other speaker from the travel agency gave us tips on how she managed to have a travel agency at home.

The highlights of our Day 2 tour, after breakfast we start the city tour in Puerto Palawan. The tour guide said that tourism there is very organized. Travel agencies outside Palawan should coordinate any travel agency here in Puerto Prinsesa, the tour guide is from here. So most of the locals can have an extra income from all the tourists! Amazing 🙂

BREAKFAST

Buffet breakfast at the resto bar.

THE AMAZING RACE

The Amazing Race Philippines last April 8, 2012.

MARI PUERTO PRINSESA

The cliffs are beautiful. This is an example of unspoiled island in the Philippines. It takes 30 minutes going here from another island.

Note: There are many monkey walking here.

PUERTO PRINSESA UNDERGROUND RIVER

One of the New 7 wonders of the world, Puerto Prinsesa Under Ground River. Our local guide is very accommodating, he explains all the facts he know around the cave.

UNDERGROUND

CAVE

You will be amazed by the rock formation, you will imagine different vegetables, fruits and other things that carved inside. But please be careful of the water because there are many bats inside too, so you know if you dropped by the bats!

In Crocodile Farm, you will see that they are selling crocodile sisig (ohmy, my friends tried it and they said it was delicious and yummy!), you will have a time to enjoy the place, see other animals and photo-op with real crocodile (P100 per person with print).

IHAWIG

INMATESPALAWAN

It is 2hour drive to Ihawig Prison and Penal Farm, the main house are full of souvenir items made mostly by the prison for their extra income. They also prepare a special dance number for us!
