Puerto Princesa, Palawan (Underground River)
On our last day in Palawan, we indeed saved the best for last for visiting the Puerto Princesa Underground River (PPUR). I am proud to say that it is now one of the 7 Wonders of Nature. If you are planning a trip to visit the PPUR, you must need to book it ahead especially for peak season when there are a lot of tourist who visits the PPUR. To do this online, please access this site http://ppur.com.ph/
Lucky for us who visited PPUR on off season because we do not need to do the booking for this tour ahead of time. We just went to a travel agency and they will take care of everything for us. The agency that we contacted is Kalokairi Travel and Tours. Their Marketing Manager Michelle Tan was so kind to arrange it for us from our transportation from hotel up to the port, lunch at Gusto Grill, boat ride from the port to the Puerto Princesa National Park where PPUR is located, and the boat tour to the Underground River itself. This package cost us P1300/pax. If you wish to arrange the tour package that Kalokairi Travel and Tours provided us, simply contact Michelle Tan with this number +63926-7015492/+63947-4249104, or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What a nice morning on our way to the Puerto Princesa Port. For the whole tour, we were accompanied by a tour guide from Kalokairi. Her name is Sarah, and she has been providing us with information about Palawan.
This is the Photo booth for those who want to get a copy of their photos. There will be photographers who will take photos during the tour and you have the option to print your photos. This is not free of charge; there will be corresponding prices depending on the size.
Stalactites and Stalagmites formation. You will be amazed with these formations. By using your imagination, you will be able to create an image of an objects or even a person. What you will see inside is a beauty of nature to behold.
Since we are on the Nature Park, monkeys are just like us who can walk and stroll on the park. Just be careful not to bring any plastic with food, or food, because they will snatch it from you. You are also not advised to show off your wallet because they also snatch it in exchange of food. Getting wiser huh?
The tour ended perfectly. We have just saw the most fascinating view that the wonder of nature gave us.
