Upon arriving the park, we pay for the entrance fee & wait to be called by our guide because there's a number of guests per tour guide. You can experience face to face encounter with this creatures that mostly evoke fear and the center is a good place to start to try to change some views on those creatures. Starting up with the short brief of the history, parts & conservation of the Palawan crocodiles and then we proceed at the babies section up to the adult ones. You get to see a bunch of baby crocs of different ages in tanks and then you walk over the bridge with the huge crocs underneath you. Dont worry you're too far up for them to reach you. There are others animals in the park & you'll see those animals in the lush garden setting. Touristy shops at the end of the tour. It's educationally, you wear comfortable clothes and picture taking is allowed with precautionary measures & allowed area only.

It was a sunny day with Ken scrolling the boulevard before heading to El Nido, Palawan for another adventure. Don't expect so much with the place or hi-end bars/restaurants in the area but you can go in the morning or even in the evening with bands & seafood escapades with your friends & family. Ken & I got here via tricycle and we were amazed by the cleanliness of the place especially the bay area & ocean facing the boulevard. Some restaurants were selling fresh fishes & shell fish that can be cooked upon ordering. You can have a short walk or jog in the area or hire bike with side car, not necessary but fun. This bay walk reminded me of the board walk along Roxas Boulevard in Manila or SM By The Bay in MOA Seaside. If you are into local food and want to meet the people of Puerto Princesa, I would recommend this City Baywalk.

Hello & Welcome to Puerto Princesa International Airport in Palawan is one of the most convenient airport when traveling to the main proper, around 5-10 minutes away form the city. You can hire tricyle or traxi going to the center. The arrival area is in the open outside the terminal building & the space is too small. This flight is courtesy of Cebu Pacific with the promo rates. I booked the ticket 6 months ago before our flight schedule.
This was my first time here in this province, also known as " The City of Paradise". It was a cloudy yet amazing day for two of us. I saw a lot of island & mountains around the city of Puerto Princesa, the capital of Palawan Province. You can't leave the city without navigating or touring the city's various tourist attractions. One of the main attractions is the Puerto Princesa Underground River which is known to be the Seven Wonders of Nature in the World. Follow me to my awesome trip here in Palawan & beyond.

The haven of Bicolano cuisines & desserts where eating is "More Than Just an Experience". One of the popular restaurant around the Province of Albay, you must try there unique-flavored ice cream better than some ice in Metro Manila I've tasted & very reasonably priced. I decided to try the sili, maluggay & calamansi ice cream. This is definitely better than unusual flavored brand of ice cream. They have a good service , clean facilities, friendly staff and affordable prices. First Colonial Grill has also a several best seller original dishes like Tinapa Rice, Ensaladang Talong with a twist & other yummy owned version of ice cream. A must try for when you are in Bicol region, whether you are a sweet tooth or not. I guarantee you will make your trip a happy tummy and more than unusual food trip.
