Ugong Rock Adventures | Puerto Princesa, Palawan

Our second day at Puerto Princesa, Palawan. When we our on our way to Underground River, our Tour guide ask us if we want to have a side trip to a cave along the way. Since we are so adventurous and "yes Man", we decided to go! 

Our first stop-over, we bought some drinks and chips.

On the second floor of the "stop-over shop". What a beautiful view!

Ugong Rock Adventures!

We met these two lovable European couple.

Saw this post before we start our climb.

The last stairs bore we reach the summit!

Finally, look at that view! <3

We took some pictures before we ended our day hike.

With our tour guide in the middle.
OH, That;s me! :)

Ugong Rock Tour is part of the side trip going to Underground River Tour. You better have some extra money for the Zipline. We weren't able to avail it because we don't have extra funds for it. But hey! We love the view going down! Try it! It's DARK! :)

That's All!

City Tour | Puerto Princesa, Palawan

Let me share you my experience in Puerto Princesa! Our first stop is the City tour.

City Tour Itinerary:
  1. Plaza Cuartel
  2. Immaculate Concepcion Cathedral
  3. Souvenir Shops
  4. Crocodile Park
  5. Iwahig Prison and Penal Farm (Side trip)
  6. Mitra's Ranch
  7. Baker's Hill
  8. Binuatan Weaving Creations
First, we started our trip at Plaza Cuartel where you can see some historical structures there. Some American soldiers who died during the World War II. 

Take note, those American soldiers were burnt to death!

Moving on...

Our second destination is the Immaculate Concepcion Cathedral an old church at the City.

You can see how old the church is if you notice the statues like this Sto. Niño.

After offering some prayers and respect to our creators, we headed to our next destination the Souvenir Shop!

Palawan is known as one of the main producers of pearls in the Philippines. You can see a lot of different pearls here. From the cheapest which is 10Php per pair (fresh water pearls) to the most rare pearls like South Sea Pearls, 3k - 5k PHP Each! Imagine how hard to find these pearls! Hindi ko alam! hahaha

I was amazed of these Wood Carvings because they are so cheap! from 50 - 1000PHP! I bought a wood mask worth 90php. at Malaki na sya infairness!

Ang cute nito, remind me of my friends. Hahahaha!

More wood carvings stores.

Butterfly displays are a bit expensive than the others. I wonder how they preserved those beautiful wings!

After the souvenir shop, our tour guide offered us some treats! They said it was free. (Which I know it is included in the package) Duh!

Our next stop Crocodile Park, this is the most exciting part of the tour I guess. Because this is my first time to visit a crocodile park!

The biggest crodile in the park..and I forgot his name! Sorry! :)

Look at that Lazy crocodile! Ang cute lang. Honestly, ang tatamad nila kumilos -_-

The epic faces of Ann! hahaha!

Ang cool ng shot ko dito. When I was about to take a picture of this beautiful creature, it looks like he likes it and made a pose! Ang tame niya. But the weird part is, wala siyang tail. Check niyo. -_-

We had a side trip at Iwahig Prison and Penal Farm to visit some of the souvenir shop inside. All souvenirs there are made by the prisoners. The good thing about this prison area is all prisoners are allowed to do anything inside the village, its like they are living freely. You just have to do your duties like take care of the farm, planting, etc. etc. They are so disciplined not tho leave the area. Ang cool di ba?! The bad thing is, They might escape! hahahaha! Well, they look harmless naman.

The view that takes my heart away! You know I have a BIG love for nature. ♥

Pang-pocketbook cover ang peg. Hahahaha!

Yes! Ang vain ng blog ko, That's why it's AWESOMEROI! hahaha!

Our next stop is Mitra's Ranch. This is the perfect place to have some photo shoots and JUMP shots!

Having fun with Ann (Crazy Dancer!)

After Mitra's Ranch, we rushed to our next stop for the pasalubongs!

At Baker's Hill, Where I bought a lot of Hopias and couple of shirts. I wasn't able to take a lot of pictures because it's getting dark. (It means Overtime na kami sa tour.) KJ tour guide!!

Our last stop, Binuatan Creations.

I think this is the most memorable part of our City tour, I tried weaving for the first time in my life. It's so Primitive! Ang saya! My respect to our ninunos.

Well, That's EAT for now! I hope I encouraged to travel in Palawan. Wait for my next blog (Our next day tour), Ugong Rock Adventure!

Ciao! :)
