I wrote many short articles and stories about Palawan (most of them in Romanian), without really giving you the big picture about the island and it’s surroundings, places to visit, customs and above all, my idea of a guide about the best way to visit the island.
The most interesting, visited and populated part of the island is the northern part, where you can find the little town of El Nido. From here, there is an 8-hour ferry ride to Coron (photo via Steli).
The distance between El Nido and Puerto Princesa is 230 km, a trip that takes 5-6 hours with the RoRo Bus. Halfway through, there’s a town called Roxas, where you can take the bus to Port Barton (at San Jose Junction). Other interesting small towns and villages along the way are Taytay and San Vicente.
I feel like now is the time to add a map!
