Entrance to the underground river in Palawan, Philippines

The entrance to the underground river in Puerto Princess, Palawan, Philippines. This is the longest navigable underground river in the world. You can take it about 6km into the mountain by boat.

The Seven Wonders of the Philippines

Rice Terraces of Banaue The Rice Terraces of Banaue are perhaps the most well know attraction in the Philippines, and no list of the Seven Wonders of the Philippines would be complete without them.. Located in central Luzon, they have been carved by local Ifugao people over the last 3,000 thousand years. When you visit, [...]

The Pinoy Dispora

I don’t just like to write about what I see in certain places and then drop the country as I move on to the next. There are some subjects that deserve revisiting, and one that sort of jumps out at you in Hong Kong is the Philippines. Why the Philippines? You’ll notice it if you [...]

Final Thoughts on the Philippines

I think I should finish up writing about the Philippines before I get too much farther in my trip. The farther I get away, the less fresh it is in my mind. From the moment I landed in Manila to the moment I left, there was something that just didn’t seem right with the Philippines. [...]

Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park

Along side the rice terraces of Banaue, the highlight of my trip to the Philippines was my visit to the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park. it is a UNESCO World Heritage site and the longest, navigatable, subterranean river in the world. (got that?) Puerto Princesa is the capital of Palawan province, the western most [...]

Transportation in the Philippines

Perhaps the most unique thing about the Philippines is the transportation system. With the exception of a short light rail line in Manila, there is zero public transportation in the Philippines. Well, they call it public transportation, but the ‘public’ refers to who the service is aimed at not ownership like in the US. The [...]

Visiting Baguio and Banaue

There are some cities in the world which can only be described as great cities. Cities where you can walk around all day and never cease finding good street food, restaurants, parks and shops. The people are nice and the streets are clean. Baguio is such a city. I probably spent too long in Manila. [...]

McPinoy

When I came up with the idea of writing about McDonald’s around the world, the idea was to compare how various restaurants differ based on how their countries differ. During my trip through the Pacific, there wasn’t a lot to set the various restaurants apart. The Philippines is the fist place where I’ve noticed some [...]

I Shall Return…….Or Not

I’m off to Taiwan in a few hours. Since I got in from Palawan yesterday I’ve been trying to figure out my ticket situation. I purchased the ticket. I’m in the computer system for Philippine Airlines as being on the flight. However, I need a paper ticket which I was never given. Why I need [...]

To the Bat Cave!

I visited the Subterranean River National Park today. My tour group included two Japanese cuties and four very nice, retired Filipino women from the US. In addition to going 1km into the cave, we also got to see big monitor lizards and wild monkeys. I only have about 48 left in the Philippines. I’m going [...]
