Cari - if your looking for good location. better stay at Marianne Home. city proper siya at malapit sa mall at resto. Ok din naman ang service nila

hello! pahelp naman.. we are on a tight budget. we are 12 adults, 2 kids and 1 infant. okay lang kaya yung gantong itinerary?? possible kaya?

DAY 1 Arrival at 9:30 am and Free Time
We can either have the City tour on our own or we can go to one of the Islands (swimming and other activities)

DAY 2 -- Underground River with Buffet Lunch (included in the package)

DAY 3 -- Free Time and Departure at 11:55am

**totoo bang pwedeng mag-tricycle na lang kami for our City Tour? Also, pwede kayang mag-rent ng boat for 1 island lang?

kung 3D/2N kayo and on a budget, don't include Dos Palmas kasi mahal yun and limited din time niyo (malaki kasi budget namin - 16K/pax for 5D/4N). you said na maaga dating ninyo sa Day 1, how about yung departure ninyo on Day 3? what time ang departure niyo? para we can suggest an itinerary.

hi sis, i really appreciate your help. our flight back to manila is around 8pm pa. Mas okay ba kung 1st day namin ay city tour na? gusto kasi ng husband ko yung makapag rest din away from the city like beach nga siguro. tia!

^kung 3D/2N kayo at gusto niyong mag-overnight sa Sabang para maka-relax ng onti, i suggest na unahin niyo yung Sabang (Underground River area) for the 1st night. tapos city accommodation yung 2nd night para malapit na kayo sa airport kinabukasan.

so pwedeng ganito:

DAY 1 - Arrival and Beach Bumming Day

Flight, Mla-PP
Lexus shuttle/ Private van from PP to Sabang (2-hr travel)
Check-in at Daluyon
Beach bumming

DAY 2 - Underground River and City Tour Day      

8:30-11:30 - Underground River Tour w/ lunch (request tour coordinator to get the EARLIEST slot)
12:00-12:30 - Check-out from Daluyon
12:30-15:00 - Lexus shuttle/ Private van from Sabang to PP
15:00-15:30 - Check-in at city accommodation
15:30-17:30 - City tour (you don't need to go to all city "attractions", just choose where you really want to go)
17:30-20:30 - Iwahig Firefly-watching tour w/ dinner

DAY 3 - Honda Bay and Departure Day

9:00-16:00 - Honda Bay tour w/ lunch
16:00-17:00 - Short rest at hotel
17:00-17:30 - Check-out from city accommodation
17:30-18:00 - Travel to airport
18:00-20:00 - Check-in at airport
20:00-21:00 - Flight, PP-Mla

since alanganin ang flight back niyo kasi gabi na, baka you can request for a late check-out for free or for a minimal fee. OR kung hindi man sila pumayag sa late check-out and they insist you check-out at 12nn, i'm almost certain na papayag sila to secure your luggage then just pick it up later. OR kung kukuha kayo ng tour coordinator for the Honda Bay tour, pwedeng ilagay niyo na luggage niyo sa service van nila.

Hi sisses, just got back from palawan. We were on a budget trip, and we stayed in Big Brother House Condotel (in rizal avenue, not in manalo branch). Eto feedback ko sa kanya:

PROS
- i think the place is relatively new (?), kaya malinis and bago pa talaga mga gamit
- it's in the heart of the city -- nasa gitna ng chowking and greenwich, katapat ng jollibee. then walking distance sa balinsasayaw, nccc grocery, itoy's coffee, heavenly desserts, and the smaller tiangge tiangge. Lagi kaming foodtrip pag gabi, actually hindi na nga namin pinansin ang regular fastfood, kasi dami choices along rizal ave (unlike sa bohol)
- at P1200 per night, meron ng kitchenette (we like para tipid kami sa breakfast)
- super nice at maasikaso nung contact person dun, si Jun :)

CONS
- ang room namin nasa 3rd floor and walang elevator. So napipilitan kami mag-exercise pa after gumala, lol
- hindi maganda ang cooking pan para dun sa induction cooker, ang bilis masunog nung niluluto namin. haha
- under maintenance ang pool


Hi sis! What's the difference kaya between Big Bro House in Rizal Ave and Manalo? How did you do the booking kasi i have tried to email their Manalo Branch per website nila but they have not replied yet. And yun pong P1,200/night good for how many pax? TIA!

Mga sisses/travelers in groups or not.. instead of hotels/condotel, here's tip, you may stay in a nice inn, in 48-B Burgos St. Puerto Princesa City, Kimbernel Residence Inn, hindi siya usual na inns na old style ang ambiance.. it's a spacious place with three rooms, nung 2011 8hun per night/per room, it has kitchenette.. as in feel at home lang ang peg, at sa city mismo. Just pm me for contact nos. :)

God is really really good, we found this place without any single idea about Puerto Princesa, since our trip that time was only re-routed to PPS, instead to Busuanga. Only a van-driver (one we got from airport) referred us to this place, na right timing because nobody is accomodating it, at malinis mga rooms. The house in-front of this place, is offering naman a van-service (city-tour, underground river, honda bay el-nido).
Hustle. Act. Move. Take action.
Even if you fail, pick yourself up and try again.

sis meimei thank you so much. nilista ko na yung IT na ginawa mo. pakita ko kay husband later. ganyan din naisip niya, pag pauwi na ang city tour para nasa city na kami.

mas makakamura ba if we will avail the packages that are being offered? kasi may gusto kasi akong accommodation na hindi kasali dun sa package na binibigay.

^sis, di ko alam kung mas makakamura sa packages, probably mas mura. pero kami kasi, pag bakasyon, it's okay to spend a little more to get what we want. :)

so what i did was book the accommodations i wanted (Sabang: Daluyon; City: Empire Suites Palawan). tapos nag-avail din ako ng Underground River tour thru Daluyon. tapos mag-avail ako ng Honda Bay-Baker's Hill-Iwahig tour (customized continuous tour) w/ a tour coordinator. di kasi kami interested sa ibang city attractions.

for your case, if you want to book your own accommodation, then do so. tapos you can just avail the tour packages w/o accommodation. for the "city tour", kayang i-tricycle na lang yan. no need to get a tour for that. actually kaya namang i-DIY kahit yung ibang tours, kaso ako kasi ayoko ng hassle at stress pag bakasyon lalo na first-time ko sa lugar.
