Day 1 - 8 Nov 2019
Content: We took Asiana Airlines from home city to Manila via Seoul. Flight was very comfortable with good food and service.
Content: In the heart of Makati, close to everything. Very accommodating and helpful staff. Large, clean and beautiful rooms. The pool is great and the whole property is classy.
Content: It was 20 mins far from hotel. This is a historical site that they preserved. It is not much to look at but it is rich in history. This is also a nice place visit if you want to know more about their history and culture.
Content: Glad to spend an hour exploring National Museum of Fine Arts. But we could only finish 2 floors out of 4. The management kept the spacious museum clean and organized. Entry was free.
Content: There were lots of people so there wasn’t a lot of opportunities for photo but being able to observe the sea creatures up close makes for a wonderful experience. They also had a water show featuring very friendly seals and we were able to take photos with them afterwards.
Content: The in house restaurant, Spectrum, serves a wide selection of international cuisines at Fairmont Makati. Food was very delicious and service was just awesome.
Day 2 - 9 Nov 2019
Content: After having wide spread breakfast at hotel we left for airport to catch flight for Puerto Princesa. It was 1h 20 m flight.
Content: Great little budget hotel. Very clean. Great location. There’s a mall right next door. The staff was exceptionally nice and externally helpful.
Content: A half day tour that will show you around some attractions within the city such as Palawan Wildlife Rescue and Conservation Center, Plaza Cuartel, Mitra's Ranch and Baker's hill
Content: Their food was truly a feast for the eyes and the palette. In addition, their food and drinks were surprisingly inexpensive. This place is a little piece of heaven!
Day 3 - 10 Nov 2019
Content: The number of visitors allowed per day is limited and guests must register in advance. I suggest arranging with a tour operator for this one if you don’t want to go through the hassle of doing the paperwork and securing a vehicle to Sabang Beach and back. This tour will take you on a two hour drive to Sabang Beach, which is the takeoff point to the Subterranean River National Park.
Content: Travel agencies usually offer this tour for P 1450 per person. Pull a do it yourself and you’ll end up saving a lot. At the wharf, you can join a group tour or rent a private boat. The boatman will take you to at least 3 islands.
Content: A night of watching fireflies and the stars. A small boat took us deeper into the mangrove forest in pitch darkness and the boatman helped us spot these incandescent creatures and identify the constellations above.
Content: Superb spanish food and service was great. Reasonable price specially their bagnet and pinakbet I do really like it. Would definitely recommand others to visit this place.
Day 4 - 11 Nov 2019
Content: We check out from hotel early morning after breakfast to leave for Port Bartan via bus which was 3.40 hours away.
Content: There is not that many fancy places in Port Barton, so don't expect too much. However, Ausan is perfectly located by the beach, affordable, offers a free breakfast.
Content: There is a small basin where you can swim. There are also cottages where you can leave your items. You can rent a tricycle for 15-20 minutes and then trek the rest of the way to the waterfall (15 minutes). Cliff diving is not allowed in Pamuayan Falls due to accidents.
Content: To be honest, Long Beach isn’t the best beach for swimming because of regular strong waves.
Content: Overall a very good experience. Lots of food options available, great service, and the meals taste great. My personal favorite being the chicken schnitzel.
Day 5 - 12 Nov 2019
Content: There are different island hopping tours in port barton. But we choose the most popular one as we had to pick one only. We visited Twin Reef, German Island, Pina Plata (where we had lunch), Maxima Island and Exotic Island, Wide Reef and Starfish Island. Had best experience feeding fish, watching corals and swimming with sea turtles. Came back at 4 pm.
Content: The pizzas are enormous and delicious! Have a variety of other foods as well. Lovely restaurant and nice atmosphere.
Day 6 - 13 Nov 2019
Content: From Port Barton we left for El Nido, which was 4 and half hour away. Not much traffic and roads were wide we wished to hire a bike instead of travelling in a van.
Content: Well manicured grounds, fantastic staff, relaxing pool, beautiful view and a clean comfortable, cottage style room.
Day 6 - 13 Nov 2019
Content: We rented a motorbike 500-700 PHP for a day to go around El Nido. The road before getting to Nacpan Beach is in really bad conditions so be careful. Before getting to Nacpan Beach is Lio Beach which is also beautiful and its perfect to stop for lunch.
Content: For sunset make sure you go on time to Corong Corong Beach. The sunsets are amazing. You can enjoy them while having a drink or a fresh coconut since there are a few bars. You can also rent a kayak and going around if you prefer.
Content: We planned to have dinner at this Indian Restaurant. I must say that my experience in this place has been excellent. The goat and the lentils were very good.The Indian owner is an affable and nice person.
Day 7 - 14 Nov 2019
Content: As we stayed in El Nido we were perfectly on time to do our first island hopping in El Nido. We started with Tour A. All the tours leave around 9 am in El Nido unless you decide to get a private tour that they will leave when you agree with them. Big Lagoon was the first stop and we spent more than an hour. The best option is renting a kayak. Secret Lagoon is too crowded and we stoped for short time. Shimizu Island we had lunch and its a nice spot for snorkeling while they are preaparing. 7 Commando Beach better if you visit as last stop since is more quiet at that time.
Content: It's a little hard to find. You need to walk along the beach in the dark to get here. Delicious food and live music just made our evening beautiful. Everything was perfect except for the eggplants salad that was ok.
Day 8 - 15 Nov 2019
Content: We shared the boat with a group of Mexicans and they were so fun to be with. We had a lively trip with beers, rum, and music. We did snorkeling at Helicopter Island and Matinloc Shrine. Secret Beach is also beautiful and it’s far the spot. Hidden Beach is one of our favorite spots. Especially if you around lunch time its not so crowded. Star Beach with blue and clear water is quiet and its the lunch stop.
Content: If you are looking for real chinese food than this is best place to visit in El Nido. Seafood fried rice and onion soup was just amazing.
Day 9 - 16 Nov 2019
Content: It was my favorite of all the tours. It includes Snake island is a beautiful sand bar that you can cross walking. The views are insane and is so beautiful. Pinagbuyutan Island - Perfect for pictures, flying the drone and snorkeling. Entalula Beach was our lunch stop. Cudugnon Cave is a hidden cave too crowded. Snorkeling Site a nice snorkeling spot where you can see fishes and corals in very clear water.
Content: On our last day in El Nido, we had a boat party! Our itinerary was a mix of beautiful and quiet places in El Nido. After that we head to Happiness beach bar for dinner. Falafel and chakchouka were really good. The theme of the restaurant is really nice, cocktails are great. I would recommend for sure.
Day 10 - 17 Nov 2019
Content: We left from El Nido morning to reach Manila international airport via AirSwift, as we had to catch Asiana airlines flight back to home. Most memorable and beautiful trip we had in Philippines.
