7-Day Palawan Intinerary

Palawan is, I think, the most remarkable place I have been to in the Philippines. Puerto Princesa is such a peaceful and homey city, filled with pleasant people and things to do. And God seems to have let his imagination run wild when he made the stunning Bacuit Archipelago in El Nido, with its limestone cliffs rising dramatically out of the waters and hundreds of feet into the sky.
