My 1st PP Trip

Visted PP with my mum's friends (Mommy Elena Cu and Mommy Belen Go) We arrived Puerto Princesa from Manila via PR195.

Visted the following sites around the city:
1. Palawan Wildlife Resource and Reservation Center (Croc Farm)
2. Bakers Hill (a very cheesy place!)
3. Rancho Sta Monica (owned by former Philippine Congressman/House Speaker Ramon Mitra)
4. Aga Estate Farm (a farm owned by a family friend of the Go family, our host)

Had dinner a Kinabuch Restaurant, a very popular dining place in town.

Saw this funny sign in PPS: Umasa kay Lord, wag sa Drug Lord (Hope in the Lord/God, not with a Druglord)

****

Spent 2nd day at Dos Palmas Arrecefi Resort, Honda Bay

Travel time of around 30-45 minutes from the city, then a 15-20 minute ferry ride to the resort. Transpo is included in day tour package

****

Third day at Puerto Princesa Underground Subterrenean Water Park

Had a very nice adventure in the park. There were monkeys "begging" for food!

The park is located roughly 2-3 hours (in rough and bumpy road) from Puerto Princessa in Sabang town.

My 2nd Trip

This time, I was with my family (Mother, Patty, Kim and Io with their kids). Spent Christmas there.

We contracted the services of a very reliable tour guide (Marlo, mobile # +639068897483). His package includes:

1. Airport welcome (with lovely native necklaces for our souvenir)
2. Half day City Tour
3. Honda Bay Tour (with yummy yummy seafood lunch - shrimp, bangus, rice, salad and grilled pork chop)
4. Estrella Falls Tour (with another yummy seafood lunch - crabs, fish, rice, salad, grilled eggplant and grilled chicken)
