    Turquoise water, majestic cliffs, white sand beaches, hidden lagoons…this is why I fell in love with this place. A small town in the northern tip of the island of Palawan - El Nido.

    Fun in the Sun in Coron, Palawan!

    The Philippines is a country blessed with more than 7,000 islands -- and with these comes countless beaches, shorelines, and seascapes for frolicking under the sun. Narrow your choices down to the best of the best when it comes to sun, sea, and sand, and you will most likely see on the list the charming town of Coron in the province of Palawan.

    Starfish Island, Honda  Bay (Palawan, Philippines)

    Starfish Island, with coral reefs breaking crystal clear water onto empty, fine white sand beaches and clear water that teems with starfish. The perfect place for "sun questers" and those who love to snorkel and go diving is Honda Bay. It is one of the most beautiful places in the Philippines comprised of several islets each uniquely named based on its appearance and on what its known for. Every tourist stop won't be complete if you wont be able to go island hopping here.

  • Lucbuan Cemetery (Cuyo, Palawan)

    Lucbuan Cemetery (Cuyo, Palawan)

    I was amazed when I saw this place - a small cemetery just above the beach front. A very solemn and quiet place, ideal place to, well, talk to dead relatives. Some of the crosses are old and have the designs of the late 18th century, those who were buried here probably were rich Spanish descendants who stayed after the Philippines regained its freedom from Spain early 1900s. Other crosses are makeshift from woods and lumber, probably owned by the locals.

    Fun Under the Sun: Island Hopping Tour in El Nido, Palawan

    It's summer time! When people mention summer, the first thing that crosses my mind would be sun, sea, and sand. So islands and beaches would be my places for spending my time under the sun.

  • Northern Palawan

    Northern Palawan

    The Calamian group of islands in Palawan intrigued me for so long. Busuanga Island, being the biggest and most populated, is the jump-off point. You can get to Busuanga in about an hour by plane or 14 hours by sea travel. I fell in love with this place in 2007 on a spontaneous weekend getaway. I was raving so much that I made a second trip, and this time, I made reservations and a list of places to see.
