From El Nido, we traveled back to Puerto Princesa for Underground River Tour (It is one of the New 7 Wonders of the World! -a must-see!)
We were in a convoy of 6 vans and I'm on Van#5. I just love my Van mates! We had a great time together and there are some unforgettable moments along the way. =)
We took a break from the dusty, rough and curvy road. Had a few minutes of picture-taking at the Karst Mountain.
While waiting for our turn, we ate our lunch while others bought halo-halo, shakes and cold refreshments to fight off humidity. We also had an opportunity for a photo shoot! 😄
When we're about to go on a boat, it began to rain which made some of my peers worried for their non-waterproof cams. We bought disposable rain coats which cost us P50 each just to see the rain stop as we took off.
After 20 minutes or so, we finally reached the island where the underground river is. It is nice to see some foreigners - most of them old, visit the famous tourist destination.
|The Cave's Entrance.|
Everybody is required to wear a life jacket and protective hat when entering the cave. When looking up at the cave's ceiling, close your mouth because as the tour guide says, there are only two things that could drop from there: holy water or holy shit! =D
Inside, you will admire the formations of stalagmites and stalactites along the 1.5 Km cruise. The weird sound made by bats and birds that inhabits the cave echoes. The tour guide's way of showing the formations is also fun! It's just amazing how they knew where the formations are exactly at, considering the darkness throughout the tour.
Before our flight back to Manila, we stopped by at a souvenir shop then our heads treats us for dinner at Kinabuchs Restaurant, just 5 minutes away from airport.
To sum it all up, the whole team enjoyed the camaraderie and the opportunity to have a good time with each other's company in one memorable outing.
Our team would like to thank Joy and her sister, Ann, for the assistance in organizing this event and for taking good care of us during our stay in Palawan and of course to our drivers for the safe, fun and fast ride! =D
