3 days Tour in Puerto Princesa Palawan

   3 days tour in Palawan made me feel that I don't want to go home anymore because it's just like I'm in the home of paradise the place is very clean and the people are hospitable, true trademark of being a Filipino.

     History about the name of Puerto Princesa Palawan. The place was named after Princess Eulalia of Spain, born in 1864 to Queen Isabel II and her consort, Dr. Francisco de Asis. When the princess suffered an untimely death, the Queen changed the name to Puerto de la Princesa. Eventually, the name was reduced to Puerto Princesa as it is known today.

     Day 1: Under Ground River, at last I already visited one of the New Wonders of nature, I'm also the one who voted not because the prizes but because one of the provinces of the Philippines Puerto Princesa is one of the finalist in the 8 new wonders of Nature. The underground river can only accomodate 500 person according to our guide, inside the cave we saw a lot stone structure of stalactites and stalagmites like The Last Supper, shape of Cacao, 3 kings and many more name by the locals to the stone structures, and also the paddler who also the guide are good comedian so that the tourist will not be bored. La Venta, a group of scientists from Italy discovered a 20-million year-old Sirenia/Seacow fossil inside the Puerto Princesa Underground River.

Day 2: Island Hopping even it is near in the city, the sea are very clean, Our first destination is the Pambato reef accidentaly discovered by a fisherman. Isla Pandan where we swum and fed fish using our barehands, Starfish Island take some pictures, They name it Starfish Island because lot of starfish, starfish also the cause of death of the corals, there is also a sandbar and mangrove there in starfish Island, according to our tour guide there are also stonefish in that island that are dangerous because the sting causes tissue excruciating pain and great deal of swelling rapidly develops causing death.

Lulubog-Lilitaw Island

Day 3: City Tour we visited the Crocodile farm, Baker's hill, Mitras Ranch Butterfly farm, Immaculate Conception Cathedral and Puerto Princesa baywalk.
