PUERTO PRINCESA CITY PALAWAN "CITY TOUR"


PUERTO PRINSESA CITY BAYWALK


Day 1 " CITY TOUR" -The best way to know the city of PUERTO PRINCESA is to take a CITY TOUR..
Instead of availing the city tour package from a tour operator, we decided to take our own city tour. As a tourism student, I already have ideas on how to make an itinerary.And before we invade PALAWAN, I did some researches about the places that we can explore during our PALAWAN TOUR.



PALAWAN MUSEUM

Our first stop was the Immaculate Conception Cathedral, just 5 minutes walk from Manny's Inn (the place where we stay).You'll see the Immaculate Conception of Mary which is the patroness of Puerto Prinsesa. After that, we went to City Plaza and Palawan Museum that showcases informations found in historical artifacts and creations of both man and nature.


MITRA'S RANCH

Next was Mitra's Ranch in Sta. Monica. We took a ride the jeep and taxicab (trycycle) going there.It offered the most breathtaking view of Palawan a few hundred feet above the rest of the city.You''ll see the scenic overview of Honday Bay Islands from here. Perfect for picture taking.



Bakers Hill

Then we took our meriendas in Baker's Hill which is known to have delicious baked goodies.It also provides sorts of fun-filled activities with its playgrounds, picnic areas, celebrities replica,finely-landscaped gardens and cartoon sculptures.

On our way to our next destination, I asked the driver if he knows the the location of Crocodile Farm and Iwahig Penal Colony. He told us that the Farm and prison colony will be close around 4pm..It's already past 3pm and we don't have enough time for that..so we decided to go to our last destination which is BAYWALK..Anyway,  according to my research, Crocodile farm is  a conservatory of crocodiles and some of Palawan's endemic species of wildlife.Iwahig is a prison where you can see the prisoners that till the land, make and sell handicrafts etc.  

After the whole day of GALA, we took our dinner in Inato's Chicken and have some beers in TIKI bar.

                                                          "TRIVIA"
Did you know that there's no taxi in Puerto Princesa?
Did you know that there's no cinema in Puerto Princesa?
Did you know the name TIKI BAR was came from the words TITI and KIKI (private organ part of human being), which is also the name of the restroom for the girls and boys
