PALAWAN / photo by Yam

Went to Palawan in the Philippines for my New Years Holiday.
El Nido, located at the very North tip of the island is a "Must Go" place if you ever go to the Palawans. Unlike other places in the Philippines, it is an environmentally protected area where the locals there are quite conscious about the environment. Therefore, the streets are kept extremely clean with no litterings nor cigarette butts.
The beaches are famous for its white sands and the ever so clear waters. Diving seems also poplular, where you can go around searching for Japanese battle ship wrecks and sunken zero-fighters from World War 2.
