Welcome to Puerto Princesa

Puerto Princesa is one of the largest cities in the Philippines based on land area which is 2,500 square kilometers. It lies at the mid-section of the long strip of Palawan Island province.

Puerto Princesa is worth visiting due to its many tourist attractions which include the Subterranean River National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. A chain of mountain ranges and wide plains run through the middle of Puerto Princesa, dividing the east from the west.

There are a lot of must-see places in this part of the world. The underground river is a beautiful subterranean river that winds through the spectacular cave that goes to the South China Sea. Hop onto a boat and go for an island hopping at Honda Bay. Beaches are aplenty with its pristine, powdery white sand.

Puerto Princesa is a little over an hour travel by plane from Manila. There are three airlines serving the city. These are the Philippine Airlines, CebuPacificAir, and AirPhilippines.

Jeepneys and tricycles are the most common means to get around the city. Jeepneys have standard routes which they ply and tricycle have its colour codings which limit their ply to certain areas.

I invite you to come visit the city of Puerto Princesa. If you need assistance on who you can trust as a tour guide, let me know and I will help you.

Enjoy your stay!

      The city of Puerto Princesa is just one of the beautiful places in the Palawan. There are many more. That must be one of the reasons why Underground River became one of the New7Wonders of Nature.

      I appreciate your comments Maaike.

    Thanks for such a nice page Freddie! I'm planning to visit PP myself very soon. However I bet you meant to write something else when saying 'Puerto Princesa is the largest city in the Philippines. ...' Would be cool though:)

    Dumaguete is a favorite retirement destination of foreigners. Sayang nga if these crimes will escalate.
