Puerto Princessa, Palawan

From Boracay, we took two short flights that took over half the day to get to Puerto Princessa in Palawan.

After arriving at the hotel we headed straight to the pool for some beers at the swim up bar.


When the sun had set we hit the indoor bar. After a trike ride to an up market restaurant by the water that was fully booked we were sent in the direction of the local sea food market instead. We dined on a feast of seafood and rice during a humongous downpour (aftermath of the typhoon).


After dinner stumbled upon some sort of outdoor casino set amongst makeshift tents and a very boggy ground. The games consisted of putting some money down on a colour or card number and throwing a ball (football to ping pong size) and if it landed on said colour you got a pay out. The odds were pretty good and we came away winning. Albeit by about $2(!). That was sadly all we had time for in Puerto Princessa.
