St. Paul Subterranean River National Park

Palawan is known as the last frontier because of its diverse fauna and karst mountains unseen in other areas of the Philippines. It was said that the island used to be connected to Borneo.

Most popular among the sites in Puerto Princesa (capital of Palawan) is the St. Paul's Subterranean River (a UNESCO World Heritage Site 1999). It is one of the longest navigable underground rivers in the world, measuring 8 kms. A short banca ride in a torquoise blue Cabayugan river will bring you inside cathedral-like caverns and domes (please see related tip).

I spent 3 days/2 nights in Puerto Princesa. I visited the Butterfly Farm, Crocodile Farm, Iwahig Penal Colony and Palawan Museum.
