Palawan has a new attraction to explore – its capital, Puerto Princesa

Unesco World Heritage Site: At the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park, visitors on the guided boat tour travel through a subterranean cave system featuring large chambers, stalactites and stalagmites.

Palawan may not be known as a tourist hotspot, but the most sparsely populated province in the Philippines is also the most beguiling.

THE first thing that strikes you about the island province of Palawan in the Philippines is its cleanliness.

Small wonder that this gem of an island has been repeatedly voted as the cleanest and greenest province in the country, thanks to its anti-littering laws.
