Puerto Princesa is the capital of the island of Palawan in the Philippines. Many visitors choose Boracay when they visit the Philippine Islands, but we decided on Palawan because it is quieter and less inundated by tourists. Where there are more tourists, there are higher prices for everything from transport to food to accommodation... and thus, that much more need for the strategic skill of haggling, which I have yet to master.

|Inside the tricycle|
|The tricycle took us through the muddy path to the beach|
|It was a cloudy day and the high tide from the full moon made the beach very wet...|
|View of Pristine Beach from the sea. Local teenage boys were fishing out of a boat and then showcasing and selling their catches to visitors eating in the huts. Pick a fish and they'll clean & BBQ it for ya :)|
Nonetheless, it didn't stop us from frolicking in the water and meeting a nice Spaniard family vacationing.
|Everyone knows Haim's!|
|Spicy Chicken Inato. I could eat a lot of these.|
