Visiting Palawan this year was not in my plan at all. I predicted a laid back traveling life this year but I guess the best trips are those that are unplanned. Much more those out of the blue. Puerto Princesa City was a stranger to me as soon as I stepped out of the airport. The city scape has changed so much since my last visit summer of 2013. I did not recognize Rizal Avenue at all. I did not have any familiar recollection of the surroundings too. Well, maybe except for the airport. I stayed in Skylight Hotel during my first night and transferred to the lovely Subli Guest Cabins the following day.
In between, I found myself swimming in the blue waters of the West Philippine Sea. I was magically transported to Pag-Asa Island with the help of my good friends and the Almighty. That very day is the most memorable for me. And I know it will be for the longest time.
Palawan is truly a gem, our country’s last frontier. I know I need to go back and do more exploration.

But I do not like planning anything that ahead anymore. Maybe one day I will just wake up, book a ticket and head on to Port Barton.
