Summer 2014: We arrived on the island of Palawan via a stay in Hong Kong and domestic transfer through Manila. Flights are cheap and it's a fairly short journey from Hong Kong where we'd been staying with friends.
Palawan was highly recommended to us because it's less renowned for being a party destination and more a nature lovers paradise. This was certainly true. We stayed in two different locations, the first being El Nido where we experienced island hopping, snorkeling and zip lining.
