Travelling is one of the best rewards we can give ourselves. Not everybody has the license to indulge into many travels a year and feed the inner vulture about relishing the natural wonders found in neighbouring islands. Travelling gives us both knowledge and experience which are more vital than the earthly treasures on earth. It is, after all, a lifetime incentive which others barely have and we can boast of. So, if you feel like going anywhere closest to nature, one of the best options is to go on traipse in partners or in groups only at Palawan! It is the best getaway escapade from our tiring daily grind at work, life’s pressures and only an hour-long travel from Metro Manila.
The Final Frontier of the Philippines
Like in real life set-up, the best way to know Palawan is by exploring its every nook and cranny. It is, after all, the island that is set oceans apart from the 7,107 islands in the Philippines. It is located in the western border therefore it has a paradise untouched and undefiled by man.
It is believed that the name of Palawan came from a Chinese word that means a safe, beautiful harbor. People come to Palawan for its beaches, waterfalls, hot springs, dive sites, caves, and other ecotourism destinations. Some of the popular sites are the underground river, Tigman Beach, Manikit Hot Springs, Estrella Falls, Mangit Cave, and Miniloc Island Lagoons. Diving is also a huge attraction and there are a variety of dive sites to thrill diving enthusiasts. Wreck divers will especially have a fun time, as there are many wreck sites to see.
Due to Palawan’s bountiful resources, abundant wildlife, extraordinary natural beauty and many invaders who dared settle and thrive in the unpolluted island, it has become the last frontier to ecological and megadiversity. Palawan is the epitome of mother earth therefore no one should dare destroy it.
