Planning an amazing Puerto Princesa getaway? If you don't know where to start, here are some sample Puerto Princesa City itineraries to give you an idea of the top things to do, tourist spots and attractions in Puerto Princesa, Palawan.


The tropical island paradise of Palawan is far too beautiful not to be included in your bucket list when exploring the Philippines. In fact, it has been hailed several times as "one of the best islands in the world" by many international travel magazines and travel websites. A much-deserved accolade, I must say.

Located southwest of mainland Luzon, a quick one-hour flight from Metro Manila or Cebu will bring you to Puerto Princesa City. It is the seat of government and the capital city of Palawan province, which is dubbed as the "Philippine's last frontier." As a highly urbanized city, it serves as a convenient gateway to some of the best tourist destinations in the province such as the lovely El Nido and Port Barton in San Vicente in the north and the Balabac group of islands in the province's southern part. But if you do not plan to travel far from the city, Puerto Princesa also offers a lot if interesting things to do, amazing tourist spots and attractions, thrilling adventures, delicious food, and so much more!

From its bustling city center to its nearby beautiful islands, Puerto Princesa is blessed with wonderful natural wonders that every tourist will surely enjoy and have an unforgettable vacation. Do you want to visit Honda Bay or the world-famous and UNESCO World Heritage Site - the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park? Read on. These sample Puerto Princesa City itineraries will help you plan your trip.
