Sabang and the Mangrove Forest River Tour

Sabang is a lovely Palawan destination and we’re really glad we took the time to visit beyond just the Underground River. The beach is rugged and beautiful and there’s plenty to keep you busy for a few days at least. Here’s the lowdown on what else we got up to in Sabang (besides trekking to the Underground River), how to get Sabang, and where to stay.


Trekking to the Puerto Princesa Underground River

The Puerto Princesa Underground River, one of the New7Wonders of Nature and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, was a must-see attraction for us in Palawan. We ran into a snag with our plan to take a boat to see it… so we just hiked through the jungle instead!

Bohol Island Tour: Tiny Monkeys and Chocolate Hills

We initially intended to make a few day trips to the individual Bohol tourist spots, including the Chocolate Hills, from our Panglao base. But after thinking about it, especially given our slightly reduced time in Bohol due to Typhoon Ruby, we decided instead to combine it all into a one day Bohol tour.

Why You’ll Love Island Hopping from Alona Beach

We had a blast staying on Alona Beach on Panglao Island. There were great activities nearby, from scuba diving to a Tarsier monkey sanctuary, and the whole area had a relaxed island vibe that resonated well with us. One of our first adventures from Alona Beach was an awesome island hopping tour to Balicasag and Virgin Islands.
