The Trip to El Nido

This is the long and unwinding road leading to the land called El Nido. It is almost at the tip of mainland Palawan. It is at the north east of Palawan and facing the South China Sea or should I say West Philippine Sea. Not all roads are like the one below that is dusty and not paved, I guess they are just starting rehabilitating the national highway going to one of the tourist spots in Palawan.

Despite being so dusty and uncomfortable ride, it is also so true that there’s always a light at the end of the tunnel. What I meant is, at the end of this very long road is paradise with calm, clear blue water hidden inside lagoons and uninhabited group of islands. A must see if you happen to be in Palawan and if you are interested what lies at the end of the road, you better come back on Tuesday for my Tuesday Travel.

    It is indeed a paradise. I have visited the place and even in the city you could see the cleanliness of the environment. Along the road, you cannot see garbage. Well, it is something worth visiting. I hope you can post more pictures….

    Really? Going to El Nido– the roads are still not cemented? If tourists would go there– what would they say? Or are there other alternative routes that have better highways? I think it deserves road construction for a smoother road trip.

    Looking forward to more Palawan snaps from your shutter! As for my new camera purchase, well, I am not into DSLR as I am the spontaneous type. I don’t want to bring the bulky camera. I prefer one nga masulod lang sa bulsa and take it out whenever there is in interesting subject that deserves my click. ;0)

    El Nido is another place that I love to visit when we can go back to the Philippines. I have many friends in Palawan and they are recommending the place for vacation :-)

    Sir Rob, Yes please! I’ve actually started to gather up travel packages info from the Internet. I’m choosing whether I should go to Bohol or Palawan (or both if my schedule permits), so if you can please send to my email contact infos, I’d really appreciate it.
