As promised in last post, presenting the visual treat about Island Hopping from Phi Phi Island and yes, as promised, I will not use many words.

How would you feel if you see them hugging suddenly? Yes, you start believing in love…..:-)

PP Underground river – New 7 Wonders of Nature : #PhilippinesDiary

What is to see around Palwan?  Was the first question to the tri-wheeler driver on the way to hotel from baby airport of Pureto Princessa.

You should go see Underground River….He said.

Underground river…..sounds interesting. Imagination about this unknown recommendation was in full swing. One more day and I was on the way to Underground river…excited 🙂

Known with a formal name as The Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park is located about 80 kilometres from the city center of Puerto Princesa, Palawan.  The river is called Underground River because it flows directly underneath the St Paul Mountain Range. Besides being one of the longest underground rivers in the world, the PPUR is also one of the very few that outflows directly to the sea.

To reach to underground river, you will visit beautiful Sabang town. The little town offers amazing beauty of blue watered beach, friendly people, couple of very good resorts and lots of novelty fruit shakes. Time at Sabang will be the most exciting time, while waiting for your turn for ferry ride and enjoying the beauty of nature around, especially those splashing waves.

And the wait ends….the new journey starts and while ferry ride, you are not sure, on which side you should see because the stunning beauty, nature has spread around is much more than your eyes can drink in.

And finally, you are on another beach. The most clean, splendidly beautiful, white beach where you do not want to stop clicking. Five minutes of soft hiking from here will take you to the boat ride station to Underground River.

And now, the most exciting part starts….Are you ready to get into that dark, seemingly little entrance in the mountain? The audio tour will help you while whole boat ride of 20 minutes, where you will explore the underground river, those naturally shaped curves, which will be interestingly related to human body and lifestyle, by your boatman. BTW, let me tell you, in the dark, the headlamp of boatman is the only directive point for you. The boatman will ask you to be silent so that you can clearly listen to those click-click of bats, sweet chirps of all the fauna, which you might not have heard about in outer world.

Finally, that’s the way to go out to sunlight again and beautiful sceneries again.

And once out of boat, you will be transferred to ferry again to go back to Sabang. And believe me, those unforgettable memories will not allow you to sleep for longer.

Stay tuned for some more visual treats where I will take you to the beautiful islands, around Palwan 🙂

 

Why Boracay is the Paradise? #PhilippinesDiary

Located in central Philippines, this little jewel has received many awards from travel publications and agencies. It has made to list of “Top 10 destinations to visit in 2016”. And if I have to award it, I will address it as “Best place for honeymooners”:-).

Dancing on white bed of sand while listening to those wild waves of ocean is not a dream of yours? Treat your eyes here, rather than just imagining how it would feel.

The picturesque beach offers some of the best spots for pictures and I too did not miss the opportunity…

Sunset here is never to be missed. Those unnamed colors seen in the sky would be the lifetime memories.

Also, you will see the sand artist at their best, almost at every half kilometer….Keep clicking, I told to myself.

The happening beach is full of palm trees, bars and restaurants. Boracay is the best place for relaxation and nightlife and once visited, you will agree to that.  The night life here is all about exploring, walking barefoot, enjoying different cuisines, trying karaoke, relaxing while enjoying massage, observing and sinking in the ambience around and finally, sleeping on towels on beach, while looking at those shining stars…..

The blue water and white sand are not allowing me to go back to my real life, although I am already back and believe me, you too will not….

And with this, if you think, Boracay story is over here…..Sorry, my friend. Stay tuned to drink the beauty of islands around….
