As Boracay Island becomes more crowded due to it's popularity, we are now seeing more tourist taking trips to what has become known as the Philippines last frontier, which is the island of Palawan.
Palawan is one of the Philippine Islands top vacation destinations for both local Filipinos and foreign tourist from abroad, and the main reasons are attributed to fantastic white sand beaches, excellent nature exploration capabilities and unlike Boracay, it's not very crowded.
Main Attractions for Palawan
Palawan is the perfect vacation spot for all nature lovers, here you will find thousands of acres of forest land that is virtually unexplored, spend your days looking at hundreds of different species of plants and enjoy seeing all types of wild animals in their natural habitat.
The Puerto Princesa Underground River is one of the top tourist attractions for Palawan, receiving thousands of tourist each year, visiting from many different countries, including, the United States, Canada, South Korea, China, Europe, Australia and many more. The Palawan Underground River is located about 1.5 hours from the town of Puerto Princesa, and travel is by private van, which will be arranged by WOW Philippines Travel Agency at the time of your Palawan package booking.
The Underground River in Palawan is located at the Subterranean National Park in Sabang, and sits deep inside of a large mountain that is made of limestone. From the shores of Sabang you will take a large pump-boat with dual outriggers attached to either side to the underground river beachfront boat dock, which is about 30 to 45 minutes away. Once you arrive at the Subterranean National Park you will take a short walk through the forest, look around for large monitor lizards, monkeys and other animals, as you approach the underground river entrance. Once you arrive at the entrance you will be assisted into a small banca boat, that will take you into the underground river, so enjoy!
