Why Travel Tuesday: Puerto Princesa, Palawan

(Every Tuesday, I will be featuring a photograph from a place I have gone to, a photograph which I believe will inspire others to go out and see the world for themselves. For this week, Why Travel Tuesday features one of the Philippine cities that I have grown to like: Puerto Princesa, Palawan.)

Of the 7,107 islands in the Philippines, Palawan ranks one in my book. It is the Philippines' final frontier and its rugged beauty, which the Palaweños develop in a sustainable manner, has impressed me thrice now. The latest occasion was when I explored the limestone karst cliffs and crystalline waters of the remote town of El Nido, Philippines. Its laidback capital city, Puerto Princesa, too, is a Philippine city I like. It's small-ish, has a lot of attractions in itself, and is home to a gem of a budget hotel Dallas Inn, a family-run joint close to Puerto Princesa's city center but far from its noise and bustle. I just loved hanging out in the outdoor lounge area of the hotel. It was easy to spend hours leisure-reading, tinkering with my laptop, or doing whatever non-activity I could put in my non-agenda. Something tells me I have not seen the last of Palawan or Puerto Princesa just yet.
