Hong Kong / Philippines - 2009 / 2010
I had the chance of taking a 2-week break during the Christmas time 2009 / 2010. After visiting both Hong Kong and Philippines during my Asia 2009 tour I still felt like returning there - this time the intention was just to enjoy good beach life in some location not spoiled with too many western people.
I had heard good things about Palawan but getting there was a bit challenging - first you needed an international flight with at least one transfer to Manila and then another domestic flight from Manila to Puerto Princesa.
Anyway Palawan turned out to be a fantastic destination - beautiful white sand beaches with good swimming and diving. Apart from El Nido there were not that many western people to be seen!
Check out the photo gallery.
After returning to Manila I spent two days in Hong Kong - main activity being the visit to Ocean Park where I tried all the possible roller coaster rides.
