Full description
Spend a couple of hours in the morning or afternoon sunshine and discover the city of Puerto Princesa by visiting some of its famous locations within the city proper. First, visit the Immaculate Conception Cathedral, which is a Roman Catholic cathedral in the heart of Puerto Princesa. Roman Catholicism is an integral part of the lives of the locals. Next, head to Plaza Cuartel where you will find a World War II fort where prisoners of war were imprisoned. Continue to Puerto Princesa Baywalk, a popular spot where locals meet and eat. In the morning, it is full of joggers sweating it out even before the sun rises while in the afternoon families and students spend their leisure time here.  Located just 13 kilometers from the city center, visit the Palawan Wildlife Rescue and Conservation Center, home to crocodiles and other rescued wild animals. Continue your journey to Mitra's Ranch, which is the ancestral house of one of Puerto Princesa's prominent politicians, the former House Speaker Ramon Mitra Jr. Taste the famous Hopia at Baker's Hill, which is a theme park with a lovely garden of larger-than-life statues of well-loved cartoon characters. Visit Binuatan Creations Weaving Center where the locals make a living by weaving. Last but not least, stop at a local shop to buy famous Palawan delicacies and souvenirs to take home to your family and friends. Upgrade your tour to include an optional relaxing 60 or 100-minute full body massage (dry, oil, hot stone, or placenta). You will be dropped off at the massage place and you can also select hotel drop-off service after massage for an extra charge, upon booking.

This was a very good experience. It was raining and cloudy but the tour guides did not let this ruin our day. The water was clear and the beaches were very clean and litter free. I would recommend this tour to anybody that wishes to visit Honda bay. The price of this tour is very cheap and is well worth the money. We had lunch and it was a lovely buffet. Everybody is very friendly and very welcoming and treat you with a lot of respect.
