REDISCOVERING PUERTO PRINCESA. Don't count Puerto Princesa out yet. Its charm does not just fade away.
PORT BARTON CALLING. Port Barton is an underrated destination in Plawan. Which is a pity, given the kind of surprises it has for the intrepid travellers like you.
THE OTHER SIDE OF EL NIDO. They say El Nido is best experienced by boat. But you may want to try one bumpy land trip to experience El Nido's other treasures.
CONQUERING CORON. Coron asks you to ditch your uniform and experience everything it has to offer this summer.
THE STILLNESS OF CUYO. Cuyo is still an unchartered paradise. And that makes it all the more exciting.
THAT UNMISTAKABLE KALUI MAGIC. Kalui, in Puerto Princesa, is a gastronomical journey and destination like no other. A must-try!
