The Palawan underground river tour is the main attraction in Palawan tours. Never go to Palawan without taking this one. And even if you already had, you will keep on coming back. January 2013 is my third trip to Palawan. And always, the Palawan underground river experience is one among my itineraries.
Even before the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River (or known as Underground River) was declared as one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature, visitors coming to Palawan were already surpassing those coming to Boracay. And where else will you find the longest navigational underground river except in Palawan? You will be awe-struck as your boat navigates the 8.2 kilometers underground passage as God-made miracles, still untouched by human hands, unfold before your eyes. The whole underground stretch is a total of about 24 kilometers and goes out into the South China Sea but tourists are allowed only the 8.2 kilometers stretch for safety.
Honda Bay islands hopping is also one of the main attractions in Palawan. Boats will take the tourists to nearby islands for non-stop swimming, snorkeling, feeding big and colorful fishes on your hands, and lunch picnics.
If there is only one place on earth you have to visit in a lifetime, Palawan is that one. In Puerto Princesa. The city in the forest. The place where everything is an experience. Swim, dive in a very clear water, snorkel, enjoy the greens, enjoy the foods. So take the Palawan underground river tour or the Honda Bay islands hopping or both. Visit Palawan. You will be happy you did!
