Palawan island and Palawan island province are two different things. The former is under the jurisdiction of the latter. Which brings me to the fact that Palawan is known to be the largest province in the country in terms of total area of jurisdiction.
Upon arrival from Manila, we headed our way to our hotel. While we were commuting via tricycle (P50), I can’t help but notice the cleanliness of the place. I couldn’t even spot some loitered candy wrappers. Well, so far.
I’m here not for vacation’s sake. It’s for work. I will be meeting new faces and new places tomorrow. Exciting.
As soon as we arrived at our hotel, all lights blacked out. It was 7:30 AM. I woke up at exactly 12:00 NN. We strolled outside and gobbled down our lunch. After which, we immediately went back to the hotel away from the scorching heat of the sun. I grabbed a magazine and I found this feature article:
Touchdown: Most hotels in Palawan can arrange to have you picked up at the airport. Tricycles to the city center cost about PHP35 (Oops, I guess we got scammed). Vans are also available for hire and are not too costly.
By Day: At Irawan Eco Park, a breathtaking canopy zip line carries you through the tall trees. It is also slow enough for you to spot the colorful birds and rich flora. Small kids can go on a carabao ride; you can relax at Spa by the River.
By Night: Try the new Puerto Princesa City Bay Cruise. Start off on a quiet firefly tour at the mouth of the Sicsican River, then end the evening with a sumptuous seafood dinner at the middle of the Puerto Princesa Bay facing the Baywalk.
Sleep: Microtel Puerto Princesa is almost always fully booked; it offers comfy chiropractic beds and a view of the sunrise by the sea. http://www.microtel-palawan.com

I am more excited with what’s to come! Bring it on, Palawan!
