3 Reasons why Palawan is best for tourists

1. Natural wonders and wildlife

Palawan is known as the best Island in the Philippines and Southeast Asia because of its destinations that attract tourists. It is also the last ecological frontier with abundant plant and wildlife biodiversity.

This stunning archipelago province regularly tops the travel lists for the world’s best white sand beaches and islands. Palawan is also known for its natural resources, scenic views, environmental landscapes, and unspoiled vacation hotspots that hundreds of thousands of people flock to yearly.

2. Culture And Food

Palawan has a vibrant diversity due to its vast number of cultural groups. Eighty-seven different cultural groups are located in this province, and due to its proximity, it bears strong influences from China, India, and the Middle East. Many different religions are practiced in Palawan due to its diverse cultural past.

The predominant religion is Roman Catholicism brought to Palawan by the Spanish, yet there are pockets of Muslims due to pre-colonial Malay settlers bringing over their faith. The Island has diverse cultural groups with nearly a hundred dialects in Palawan. Yet, the people of Palawan are very welcoming, and its diversity is not a problem for any tourist.

Palawan also has a rich food culture into which all these influences have fed. Among local treats to seek out and sample are super fresh seafood, including tamilok (a shell-less saltwater clam, served ceviche-style or fried), crocodile sisig (a sizzling minced-meat dish), lato seaweed salad, hopia bread (a sweet, flaky pastry best eaten at Baker’s Hill in Puerto Princesa), danggit lamayo (dried rabbitfish) and Chao long (Vietnamese-inspired noodles). Food enthusiasts should also make a beeline for San Jose Market in Puerto Princesa.         

3. Infrastructure And Development

Infrastructure development is the construction of essential foundational services to stimulate economic growth and quality of life improvement. Most advanced economies have gone through periods of intensive infrastructure building that have improved the efficiency and competitiveness of the region.

Accessibility to where you’ll live is one of the most critical factors that must be considered. Be at the comfort of your home in less than 15 minutes from the city via Puerto Princesa Bay Bridge, which will soon rise in the South.

Investors should also keep an eye on planned commercial and municipal developments in an area.; for example, schools, hospitals, and other establishments. Once these infrastructures are built in the area, the properties in proximity will increase their value positively.

The viaduct is a road alignment project connecting roads starting from Bgy. Mandaragat going to Abanico Road to Purok Sandiwa and lastly to Sitio Apan, Bgy. Sicsican.

Another proposed infrastructure project is the Palawan Super Highway, six-lane highway project for its 600-kilometer road from El Nido town in the north to Bataraza town in the southernmost tip of the mainland province. This project aims to boost and help the tourism industry of the province.

The Palawan island remains one of the few pieces of paradise left on the market that has not fallen into demise due to the lack of proper maintenance. It is one of the ideal locations to be explored by adventure junkies, thrill-seekers, and the general population looking for serene places to visit.
