Continuation of our Palawan Adventure.
We left the terminal at around 1130. The journey going back to the city was also full of uphills and downhills. This journey we had two stop-overs one in taytay; where we had a 15 minute lunch and another in roxas to drop off some passengers. The driver also had to stop for a few minutes to replace tires. The ride back to the city was about 6 hours. The driver dropped us off the central terminal; and we rode a multicab dyip bound to the nearest hotel in the area. In the dyip we had a chance to meet some locals who also gave us tips to enjoy the city.
Infront of Go Hotel, Puerto Princesa
What a nice room we have 🙂
We checked in Go-hotel an economy hotel that is perfect for backpackers because of its accesibility. After checking in we went around to the place that was recommended to us by locals; bona’s chaolong. Chaolong is a vietnamese soup; it is very popular among the locals because the restaurant was crowded. We ordered beef chaolong noodles and yakult shake for dinner. After dinner we rode a tricycle to the baywalk; our driver said that it was like the manila bay walk only it was cleaner. The puerto princesa baywalk has bikes for rent, kiosk to buy food and beverage. It is a perfect place to hang around during mornings and nighttime.
Jam packed night!
The next day the day of our departure; we had our breakfast at local tapsi restaurant. We ordered tapsilog and chicharon. We need a heavy breakfast in preparation for our 1pm flight. After breakfast we once again explored the city; we went to the immaculate conception cathedral which is accesible by multicab dyipneys. By this time we have dithed riding tricycles because dyips are far more cheap. The cathedral was beautiful it is colored blue and the inside was in te color hue of purple. We also had a chance to visit the plaza cuartel; a monument that was erected to the american prisoners of war that was killed in a massacre during world war II. The monument was enclose in a park where the the monument serves as its center piece. We returned to the hotel to fetch our things and to catch our ride to the airport courtesy of Go hotel.
Hearty tapsi breakfast at Pares Plaza! A perfect place to remove the Chaolong after taste 😛
Immaculate Concepcion Cathedral
Our air asia flight departed from the puerto princesa airport at around 130; arriving in clark at around 3pm. Thankfully, it was a very smooth ride unlike the flight going to puerto princesa.
Our first Palawan experience is the bomb! We may have budget issues, but still we enjoyed our trip. Palawan is a big island and lots of places to go to. And we know we will always come back here without having second thoughts.
