Detail Itinerary
Day 1 Arrive at Manila
Upon arrival at Manila, you will be met and greeted by our representative and then be escorted to your hotel. Manila is the gateway to the 7,107 islands of the Philippines and is the historical center of government and industry. The city is a delightful mix of the old and new – from ancient Spanish churches to gleaming high-rise structures, quaint street stalls and modern shopping mails, historical landmarks to pulsating nightlife. In Manila, every corner is a discovery.
Day 2 Manila B,
After breakfast at hotel, you will take a half day city tour to visit Luneta Park, Fort Santiago, Intramuros, the old “Walled city”, Chinese Cemetery and Makati Financial District. Rest of day is free at leisure. You may choose to rest at hotel or explore Manila on your own.
Day 3 Manila – Puerto Princesa B,L,D,
Transfer from your hotel to domestic airport for your flight to PUERTO PRINCESA. Legend attributes the name “Puerto Princesa” to a princess-like maiden who in the early days is said to have roamed around the place on certain nights of the year. On the other hand, practical people attribute the name to the geographical advantages of the place as a seaport – naturally protected the whole year round and endowed with a depth that can accommodate any size of shipping – a royal heaven for vessels or a virtual princess of ports as thus indicated by Spanish Colonizers on the country’s map. Upon arrival at the airport, meet & greet by our representative and transfer to your hotel. After check-in, proceed to lunch at BADJAO’s SEAFOOD RESTAURANT, amidst mangroves and facing the bay. Then you will take a city tour of PUERTO PRINCESA. The city has been acclaimed several times as the cleanest and greenest city in the Philippines. Visit the Palawan Museum located at the Mendoza Park. Here we get an impression of the history, art and culture of the people and their mythology of this island group. Visit the Plaza Cuartel, the beautiful Immaculate Conception Cathedral, and the Palawan Wildlife Rescue and Conservation Center (formerly Crocodile Farming Institute) a showcase of successful conservation project. The farm breeds two endangered species found in the country including the endemic Philippine Crocodile. There is also a minizoo where the colorful Nicobar Pigeon, the raucous talking mynah, the elusive bearcat and other animals found in Palawan are sheltered. See the Iwahidg Prison and Penal Farm. In the prison without walls, inmates tend vast farms instead of idly spending time behind bars. Dinner at KA LUI’S RESTAURANT, popular for its excellent fresh seafood fare, and unique and cozy ambience where customers have to remove their shoes and sit on pillows.
