    Puerto Princesa

    July 13, 2017 on the Philippines ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    Today we made the long 7hour minibus journey back to Puerto Princesa.

    We decided to stay in Puerto Princesa City for a few days before leaving for our next country so we could see how the city differs from the remote areas we've been in.
    The City was smaller than we thought so in the time we were there managed walk and to see it all. From the westernised Shopping Malls to the local villages and people.

    Then time to start our journey to Beijing: first flying to Manila then getting our connecting flight to China!

    Day trip to central El Nido

    July 11, 2017 on the Philippines ⋅ 🌙 28 °C

    Third time lucky for this trip!! After being rained off the past two days we finally got a day to explore the beauty of El Nido.

    We went on a boat trip out to see the lagoons, beaches and islands. Scenery was incredible, crystal clear waters made it seem as if the bottom of the sea was within touching distance and the greenery of the rock faces surrounding us is something we've never seen before.

    Very glad we hired a kayak in the small lagoon as could pass through a tiny gap in the rock face to enter a hidden lagoon to explore.

    Followed up by snorkelling and a BBQ on the beach :)

    Erlittop- Sibaltan, El Nido

    July 3, 2017 on the Philippines ⋅ ☀️ 29 °C

    Day 3-12

    After a long few days of travelling we reached our destination for the next 10days.. it took a 14hour flight, sleeping on the airport floor, two hour internal flight and finished off by a very long 7hour mini bus journey to reach Sibaltan but it was worth it!

    The Erlittop hostel was located in a remote part of El Nido right in the jungle and overlooking the sea with amazing views.

    Highlights of our stay so far:

    - Great local food
    - Exploring the local village and culture
    - Relaxing on the beautiful beaches
    - Kayaking to a small island in the middle of the sea, small enough to see the other side!
