Solo Traveler: Philippines’ Last Frontier- Palawan

  Also dubbed as the ‘Land of Promise’, rich with stunning islands and deep blue seas, Palawan (Kapalawan) is truly the Philippines’ last frontier.

The Puerto Princesa Airport serves as the gateway to the independent city of Palawan.

Outside the airport, a welcoming banner that welcomes tourists.
After I touched down at the airport, I headed to Puerto Princesa City, the only independent city of Palawan (City of the Living Good). The mode of transportation here are tricycles and multicab. Tricycle’s fare is Php 10.00 only within the city.

I also paid a visit to Palawan’s famous Cathedral. The Immaculate Conception Cathedral (Palawan Cathedral).

And just a few walks from the church, you will see the historical Plaza Cuartel, that once serves as the Japanese headquarters and when the Palawan Massacre 1944 happened.

Inside is a small park with benches and a statue in the middle dedicated to the WWII American veterans and for the victims of Palawan massacre.

I also tooked a selfie infront of the facade of the Cathedral (haha).
   With so much places to visit yet I only have limited time. But, I will definitely comeback here and I will try there famous hopia. Just a quick fact, in 2001, Palawan residence voted in a plebicite that the latter will be included in Expanded Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) but they casted No and remaines under Region 4 B. Also, they are famous in daing and kasoy which is more cheaper to buy here!
