Discover Puerto Princesa City’s history and heritage as you sightsee its iconic spots with this half-day city tour. This excursion is the perfect option for those wanting to get a quick glimpse of the cityscape upon their arrival in the province of Palawan.
Once you’re picked up within Puerto Princesa City, you will make your way to the Palawan Wildlife Rescue and Conservation Center. This institution currently serves as a shelter to Philippine crocodiles and other mammals and reptiles. Here, you’ll get to learn how the crocodiles are being taken care of from birth. There is also a spot in the area for photos with the baby crocs.
A little over five kilometers away from the crocodile farm is the Butterfly Garden, where a handful of butterfly species are housed. You will also drop by Mitra’s Ranch and Baker’s Hill. Both attractions are located in Sta. Monica Heights, just around 700 meters away from each other. Mitra’s Ranch provides a view deck for guests, while Baker’s Hill sells tons of baked goodies for you to take home.
From there, you will drop by the Binuatan Creations and Traditional Weaving Center to catch a glimpse of how hand-woven products are made. Feel free to buy one of the handicrafts here, as well. Some eight kilometers away from the handicraft shop is the Baywalk, which rewards visitors with an unspoiled view of Palawan’s seascapes.
A quick stop to the Immaculate Concepcion Cathedral is also included in this tour, along with a stopover at Plaza Cuartel, a historical WWII garrison site. The plaza is the site where American soldiers were burned alive by the Japanese forces.
A short walk away from Plaza Cuartel is Mendoza Park, where locals usually hang out for recreation. You will also be taken to the Puerto Princesa City Coliseum, which sits a little over two kilometers away from the park. Before going home, you will stop by a pasalubong (souvenir) center to buy some local goodies.
