It would take several lifetimes to explore the 7,000+ islands that make up the Philippine archipelago, but if you’ve only got the one to spare, spend it in the South. Blessed with miles of pristine, uncrowded beaches, intriguing caves and the two-tiered Puerto Princesa subterranean river, the Palawan province is perfect for travellers eager to try their hand at a variety of experiences in an under explored part of south east asia.
