My DIY tour of Puerto Princesa City

By on December 9, 2010
For this accidental DIY walking tour, I only spent Php14.00 for the multicab rides to and fro the PPS City Hall. It is to some extent, a breather to the 3 organized tours that I took the days before. I think I lost a few pounds in the process but I also gained a raw and personal perspective of Puerto Princesa City.

Puerto Princesa, Palawan: Honda Bay tour

By on November 30, 2010
I would not have made it to Honda Bay (HB) if not for a surprise birthday gift from a good friend. I actually crossed off HB from my budget-constrained itinerary in Puerto Princesa because I am not a beach person.

Iwahig Prison and Penal Farm

By on November 5, 2010
The gate in the picture is the only physical barrier at the Iwahig Prison and Penal Farm in Puerto Princesa. Other than this structure, you could see no fences or barbed wires that would secure the perimeter of the 38,000 ha. facility.

Co Anh Pho | Puerto Princesa, Palawan

By on November 2, 2010
The chaolangan in Puerto Princesa could be one of the most enduring legacy of the Vietnamese refugees. They are the 'boat people' who once sought and then found a temporary (which became permanent later on) home in Palawan.

My solo trip to Puerto Princesa

By on October 18, 2010
But the universe seemed to conspire for me to go to Palawan despite the seemingly unfavorable circumstances at the onset. A few weeks before the scheduled trip, two non-working holidays (one was local and the other was national) were declared.
