Puerto Princesa, Palawan City Tour

Our first stop was Baybay, Palawan's own version of the "Baywalk in Manila".  It is also located near Plaza Cuartel and Immaculate Conception Cathedral. It was around 2:00pm and it was near empty since it was really hot and shades were limited.




Next stop was Plaza Cuartel. The tour guide also informed us that we only need to smoke on the designated areas. Peeing on the walls is also prohibited. Lol to the man we saw peeing on the wheel of his truck! hihi!

Plaza Cuartel is located near Immaculate Conception Cathedral. It is a restored ruins where Japanese Soldiers burned 143 American prisoners inside the tunnel. The tour guide told us that 10 prisoners survived.

ruins
PBB Teens??
  
 Just outside Plaza Cuartel is Immaculate Conception Cathedral.  The statue of the patron saint of Palawan, the Immaculate Conception is also an added attraction for the tourists.


Next stop was the Souvenir Shop which I won't really recommend. Aside from old T-shirt designs, sales ladies were just sitting and laughing while we find ways to get our t-shirt sizes plus they actually don't know the exact prices of what they sell.


 After that, we went to the Crocodile Farm. Same old crocs! I'll just add pics. lol. Of course, we saw lots of crocodiles.


Nature Park.
 

Note: SPELL - E-X-H-A-U-S-T-E-D.



Please.. I need the EXIT.


Let's give time for some bearcats and crocs!!


 After that, we went to Mitra's Ranch a triangular-shaped mansion on a hill overlooking the view of Honda Bay Islands.


We enjoyed the picnic grounds and the wonderful view!


1-2-3 jump!

After few minutes, we visited the famous Baker's Hill and bought a lot of hopia and bread!




Don't forget to experience the taste of Tamilok (a wood worm i guess..) it tastes like i can't describe, and it is smelly so don't forget to put some vinergar!


After Baker's Hill, we went to another Souvenir shop then headed back to the hotel to rest and wash up!
So by dinner, we went to just a local food store  (in short karinderya) to eat since we spent a lot on our Lunch. For dinner, we spent around 500 pesos for 7 pax.


We decided to drink beers that's why we went back to Balinsasayaw Restaurant. Too bad, the hotel doesn't permit Drinking and Eating inside the room!!!


Yes, all of us are Red Horse beer lovers. We drank few, uhmm, 16 bottles i guess. After getting drunk, we're all tired that we decided to rest since we need to wake up at 6:00am the next day for our Honda Bay Island Hopping tour!

I am also Philippines lover. You knows there are so many places to visit. I think 1 year was not enough to visit all the attraction in the Philippines.
