Puerto Princesa is the capital of the island of Palawan. Dubbed as "The City in a Forest," it has been awarded for being the cleanest and greenest city in the country. Puerto Princesa has some of the things tourists will least expect from a tropical paradise—commercial establishments, major roads, and even heavy traffic. It is also usually the jumping-off point to the more scenic coastal towns of Palawan. But behind the busy urban scene are unique natural wonders that make the capital an impressive tourist destination as well.

Hailed as one of the "New 7 Wonders of Nature," the Puerto Princesa Underground River is the city's biggest attraction. The one-of-a-kind river flows through stunning rock formations and leads all the way to the South China Sea. The boat ride deep into the cave is like travelling into another world surrounded by beautiful limestone and marble walls sculpted by nature itself. There are also fruit bats and swiftlets flying around and clinging on the rock formations.

Another attraction in Puerto Princesa is the Mangrove Paddleboat Tour. Located near the underground river is another enchanting river surrounded by old mangroves. The guided tour also includes facts about these plants and their importance to the environment. Tourists will also be asked to plant a seedling near the end of the tour.

Dining in Puerto Princesa is a great way to experience the city's local culture. There are countless restaurants that serve delectable dishes, but no one does it better than Kinabuchs Grill and Bar. Some of the must-tries are the crocodile sisig and the slimy wood worm called tamilok.



By Air
Getting to Puerto Princesa by air is fairly easy. There are a number of commercial airlines that offer daily flights. Cebu Pacific Air offers flights from Metro Manila, Cebu, Iloilo, and Davao to Puerto Princesa International Airport.

 
By Sea
Traveling to Puerto Princesa by sea is the more economical choice. It's ideal if you are on a tight budget but patient when it comes to long journeys. Ferry companies like 2GO Travel offer cruises from Manila to Puerto Princesa City that last for about 29 hours.

 
How to Get Around
By Tricycle
Tricycles are the main mode of transportation around Puerto Princesa. You can find them all over the city. For instance, there are tricycles even at Puerto Princesa International Airport that can take you to your chosen accommodation. They're slightly bigger than the tricycles that are common all over the Philippines. It's the ideal choice if you are traveling with a group as you can always split the fare among yourselves.

By Motorbike
If you'd like to experience a unique way of discovering Puerto Princesa, considering renting a motorbike. Not only will it save you more money, but it also gives you the freedom to explore Puerto Princesa at your own pace.

By Car

What to See
Landmarks
Puerto Princesa has a rich history, as evident in its historical landmarks. Princess Eulalia Park is known as the site of the proclamation of Puerto Princesa's foundation in the year 1872. Another famous landmark is the Immaculate Conception Cathedral. Only a small church then, it was the site of the first mass ever held in Puerto Princesa also in 1872. It was reconstructed into a cathedral in 1961.

Just near the cathedral is Plaza Cuartel, a National Historical Site. This World War II garrison is where Japanese soldiers in December 14, 1944, burned 150 American prisoners of war alive. This event is referred to as the Palawan Massacre.

Iwahig Prison and Penal Farm is also a notable landmark. An "open prison" where inmates work at a farm instead of being locked up behind bars, it was established by the Americans in 1904.

Natural Attractions
Although it is a highly urbanized area, Puerto Princesa has a great balance of urban attractions and natural wonders perfect for tourists who want the best of both worlds.

Of course, one does not talk about Puerto Princesa City without mentioning the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park. This protected area features one of the world's most amazing cave systems and features an impressive limestone or karst landscape. Declared as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1999, it houses the 8.2 kilometer-long Puerto Princesa Underground River, which is believed to be the world's longest navigable underground river. This spectacular river was named as one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature in 2011. Aside from the world-renowned underground river, the park is also home to several species of flora and fauna.

After your Underground River Tour, you can walk along the shores of Sabang Beach and snap a few photos. You can even go on a Mangrove Paddleboard Tour and see the amazing forest river full of mangrove trees.

Meanwhile, Honda Bay is blessed with a number of breathtaking islands and going on an island hopping tour is the best way to see their beauty with your own eyes. Not only will you be able to visit them, but you can also swim and snorkel in some of the islands. Of the many islands included in the tour, the most notable are Pandan Island for its spectacular white sand, Lu-Li Island for its mysterious disappearing act during high tide, and Starfish Island for of its abundance of starfish.

Firefly watching at Iwahig River at night is also a magical experience that tourists simply must not miss. Boatmen take tourists on a boat ride along Iwahig River where they'll see glowing fireflies as well as bioluminescent bacteria.

Man-made Attractions
There's something for everyone in Puerto Princesa. Whether you are a nature lover, a foodie, or an adventure seeker, you'll surely find your own kind of fun in this city.

For animal lovers, you can visit Palawan Wildlife Rescue and Conservation Center. Its main attraction is the Crocodile Farm but there are also other kinds of animals there. It functions not only as an animal farm but also as a research center. Mitra Ranch is another place you should visit if you are fond of animals, especially horses. This vast ranch is also perfect for sightseeing; it has an observation deck that overlooks a stunning view of Puerto Princesa.

Just like the city of Manila, Puerto Princesa also has its own Baywalk. It is the perfect place for a stroll and food tripping because of the many dining options and food stalls there.

Meanwhile, Baker's Hill is the ultimate destination for those with a sweet tooth. It offers a wide variety of pastries and sweet treats for pasalubong.
