Palawan, PhilippinesAre you planning to go on a trip any time soon but can’t decide where to go? If you enjoy basking in the sun or diving in crystal clear waters, this precious island in the Philippines will surely make you pack your bags and book a flight.

Palawan is just one of the many wonders that the Philippines can offer. The readers of Travel and Leisure Magazine have voted this island as the number one best island to visit not only in Asia but also in the world.

What Makes Palawan the Best?

If you’re going on a trip around South East Asia, make sure that you put Palawan on your list. Offering green mountains, limestone caves and one of the world’s longest underground rivers — Palawan is a haven for wanderers.

Adventure travel companies like One Life Adventures attests to how majestic Palawan is with its breathtaking features and experiences. Travellers can enjoy unspoilt, sugar-white beaches and world-class scuba diving experiences in its turquoise waters.

Palawan is also rich in culture and friendly locals. You can witness how locals celebrate Filipino culture during Baragatan festival with colorful float parades and costumes.

Food lovers cannot be left out, of course. Palawan offers a variety of freshly-caught local seafood cooked in ways that will satisfy your taste buds. You can also enjoy a bottle, or more, of locally-brewed beer without spending too much money.

Going to Palawan

If you can’t find a direct flight from Australia to Puerto Princesa, you can fly to Manila, and from there, take another flight to Puerto Princesa.  Another option would be to board a ferry boat from Manila to Palawan, but this could take about 18 to 22 hours.
