To see the selection, visit www.agoda.com/PerfectPalawan
Palawan is actually an island province easily picked out on a map of the region – it’s the long narrow one that stretches some 450 kilometers from the Philippines’ southwest corner almost to the tip of the Malaysian island of Borneo. There are several other islands that complete the province as well, from small uninhabited reefs to large jungled mountains such as Busuanga Island and Culion Island.
One of the nicknames that often comes up in descriptions of Palawan is “the Philippines’ last frontier” due to the fact that a large percentage of the province is undeveloped, and that it contains a vast amount of biodiversity. Indeed, it’s home to two UNESCO World Heritage Sites – Puerto Princesa Subterranean River and Tubbataha Reef National Marine Park – and is a fascinating melting pot of dozens of unique languages and cultures.
Recently, Palawan was named in several high-profile tourist lists: CNN World’s 100 Best Beaches 2013 placed El Nido Beach at #14, while Conde Nast Traveler named Palawan one of the top destinations to watch in 2013. Visitors can visit picturesque rice fields, steep mountain landscapes, and lush green jungle without much effort at all, or simply choose one of Agoda.com’s luxury spas and do nothing but relax and rejuvenate.
To help visitors explore this gorgeous and relatively unspoiled island, Agoda.com is providing a special page showcasing 18 of Palawan’s best hotels in a variety of locations, from the capital Puerto Princesa, to the sleepy town of El Nido, to the tiny Dimakya Island off Palawan’s northern coast. Have a look and see which one will make a vacation to the Philippines the perfect escape!
