The temperature was well over 40 degree and the relative humidity was well over 90%. As the radio presenter in Good Morning Vietnam says, “It is real hot, damn hot. The hottest thing is my short”. Yes, this was so true maybe one should perhaps heed his advise? But no we decided to head out to Gon Pak Stream to cool off. Well, at least that was what we thought!
Puerto Princesa, in my opinion, is one of the most exotic and beautiful places on the planet. A couple of hours drive from Puerto Princesa sits an under ground river, which is one of the largest cave systems in the world. The river itself is over 8 km in length, all of which is subterranean….
Hayley and I went to Puerto Princesa mainly for scuba diving, but we also took some time to explore the city or as the local would call the City Proper (innit).
Instead of joining the packaged city tour by the hotel, we decided to do our DIY trip, so we can explore it on foot and at our own pace.
Last month, Hayley and I went scuba diving at Puetro Princesa, Palawan Island in the Philippines. This was our first dive trip since we got our PADI certification. It was great to put our newly acquired skill into actions and at the same time had the opportunity to explore some of the most beautiful and diverse ecosystem in the world.
