Why Obsess over the City in a Forest, Puerto Princesa

As I hurry up and write this one, amidst the afternoon scorching heat here in Singapore, I can’t seem to get Puerto Princesa out of my mind. There’s this gut feeling of wanting to spend Christmas amidst the afternoon scorching heat, accompanied by sociable sea waves and a fresh coconut drink. It’s not summer, but it sure sounds like an awesome celebration to have this daydream visual become a tangible reality. Christmas carols with the sea waves as background music, yes. Christmas sea food buffets with fishermen and locals, yes. Christmas gift-givings at the beach front area, yes. Yes, that kind of good gut feeling, and you know when you have this, it just has to be done, right? The scorching city sun in Singapore is nagging me to try a different approach to sunlight. So, in less than twenty four hours after landing in Manila, I packed my rusty old backpack and headed south from hometown to finally visit one of the most talked about cities on Earth, Puerto Princesa City.

The Philippines houses more than a handful of beautiful, mysterious, and pristine islands that are worth experiencing, and this cleanest and greenest city is one of the high priority ones worth the travel. With UNESCO World Heritage stamps, New Seven Wonders of the World Title, and several notable awards under its belt, this princess-like maiden city is one of the few places in the Philippines that every Filipino, and other well versed travelers from all over the planet, would like to include in their bucket lists. Christmas or no Christmas, sun or no sun, it’s just the place to be. It’s a melting pot of various ethnicities, local and folk cultures have been preserved with so much precision and excellence. It’s just a fascinating sight to be part of.  From exotic food trips, uncanny “cocoon” experience, animal go thrus, firefly watching, and history filled landmarks, the whole Puerto Princesa travel experience is intensely interesting. Christmas is over and it’s almost a week after the New Year, let’s have a virtual toast with those coconut drinks and daydreams.
