Start with pickup at your hotel in Puerto Princesa, then travel to the Immaculate Conception Cathedral, where the first mass in Puerto Princesa was held in 1872. Just next door to the cathedral is Plaza Cuartel, once a military fort that was the site of tragic events under Japanese occupation during WWII.
Continue to the Palawan Wildlife Rescue and Conservation Center, often called the “crocodile farm,” then see hundreds of Philippine crocodiles, an endangered species that’s native to the country. Try a few sweet treats at Baker’s Hill, the perfect spot to sample unique pastries such as hopia, a sweet roll filled with bean paste.
Drive to the hilltop Mitra Farm, where you’ll find a shady veranda that looks out at the Honda Bay, as well as horses and cows in carefully-tended pastures. If desired, you may add on a visit to the Butterfly Garden, among the most colorful destinations in Palawan.
Before returning to your hotel, browse for unique souvenirs in Binuatan Creations and Tiangge-Tiangge, a pair of shops that offer a wide selection of handmade crafts from around the island. This 4-hour tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel.
