Mitra's Ranch

3 saves

Puerto Princesa, Philippines • Memory • 

This is a dream place for people who want to wake up with a perfect sight of trees and green surroundings, a smell of fresh air and a windy veranda. This is where the house of the late House Speaker Ramon “Monching” V. Mitra Jr. and his wife and kids is located. Inside you’ll see old pictures of the Mitras hanging on the walls and at the center was a huge tree trunk (I forgot what it is called). There are also many collectible vases inside the house.

Baker's Hill

2 saves

Puerto Princesa, Philippines • Recommendation • 

In this place we have tasted one of the best hopiang baboy ever. Baker’s Hill sells various pastries like hopia (in monggo, ube and baboy flavor), crinkles, cupcakes and brownies. The prices are fair (a box of hopiang baboy is just P45). I suggest that you buy as many pasalubong you can carry here because if you buy at the airport the price is doubled (a box of hopiang baboy is P70 at the airport).

Binuatan Creations

2 saves

Puerto Princesa, Philippines • Recommendation • 

In here I had the chance to try weaving (ang hirap pala!). We saw old and young gifted weavers who makes various creations ranging from bags, ipad cases, notepads, table settings, fans and place mats. I also had the chance to chat with them. They have a store beside the factory where you can buy all the items they have made. Suportahan ang sariling atin and purchase one or two items here.

Palawan Wildlife Rescue and Conservation Center (Crocodile Farm)

3 saves

Puerto Princesa, Philippines • Recommendation • 

We had the opportunity to see crocodiles of various ages and sizes.The Crocodile Farm also has a mini-zoo, featuring other endemic Philippine species, as well as the Research Institute, which is dedicated to all things Crocodiles. My son was able to see for himself what a Binturong or bear cat looks like (they have studied about this animal at school), and the bearded pig which are both endemic at Palawan.

    Palawan Butterfly Ecological Garden and Tribal Village

    1 save

    Puerto Princesa, Philippines • Recommendation • 

    You’ll learn the life cycle of the butterfly at the butterfly garden. Besides the butterfly garden was the Tribal Village where the indigenous people of Palawan stayed for a while.We were humbled when we saw how they live and survive, how they hunt for food and how they entertain themselves up on the mountain. These people don’t speak nor understand Filipino and English language but they were able to express themselves through their actions. Meeting with these people creates compassion. You will learn that earning a minimum wage isn’t bad at all, it’s better to have money to buy food than to hunt for food on your own.
