Why Coron, Palawan Is a Gem

Coron, Palawan will surely bring you heaven on earth. Why? Because you get the exact amount of relaxation away from work and the city.


Coron, Palawan will surely bring you heaven on earth. Why? Because you get the
exact amount of relaxation away from work and the city. We usually think of
vacationing in Philippine towns and think of green grass, ancient houses, and
typical town layout. What we don’t usually get is the luxury of having the town
near the sea or a body of water—that’s what we get from being in Coron! While
we were walking around the town proper, we noticed that there were night
markets and street food everywhere. There were the usual apparel stores, coffee
shops, and other types of stores. But the real hero of the night is our ride from
and to the hotel. We rode a tricycle that can fit all four of us. It also brought us to
locally known seafood restaurants which we all truly enjoyed and savored.

We joined a group tour on our first day in Coron to Mount Tapyas. It was a 724
steps trek going up and down. And yes! On our first day! It was one heck of a
starter for someone who stopped trekking for a period of time. I guess it worked
as a warm-up or an ice-breaker for us in Coron. It kind of acted like a warm
welcome for us—I even thought I heard my muscles tearing. Just kidding! But
anyway, after a long day, it was kind of nice to go back to the hotel and just take a
nice swim then sleep. And that’s what we did. We all thought we deserved that
short “cool down” afterward.
Our second day was a “hotel arrest” for me as I got sick and wasn’t able to join
the tour. However, it made me really appreciate the hotel more. I have everything
that I could ask for by paying the receptionist/ restaurant a call every time—and
they’re all so hospitable!
The third to our last days, it was all island tours for us. The Kayangan Lake was the
first on our list and it really made a mark for me. It has the clearest water I have
ever seen and it has the best view to look at. It actually has a view of an island
that is a famous photo bomber in all photos on social media. Can you imagine yourself stopping over an island just for lunch? Take note, it’s a
buffet! This makes everything such a paradise. We get to eat our lunch buffet on stilts on an island with a white sand beach and clear blue water-- I couldn’t ask for more.

Planning your tours and accommodations ahead is the best way to have a stress-
free trip. I know not everyone will agree with me on this because some people find it more fun and easier when booking on the spot—most especially for backpackers. I also find it handy and helpful to know some travel agencies because I can search and book any accommodation and tour without a sweat! Commute—oh yes! You heard me right, I am really serious about commuting in Coron. Everything is within your reach if you can commute using local vehicles— and you wouldn’t have to wait for the next available service the hotel has. Walking—yes! I am dead serious about walking. It sounds boring because I know

you’re on vacation and you just want to relax (and walking doesn’t sound like
relaxation). But walking is the total “travel like a local” experience. You notice a
lot more stores, restaurants, and shops when you’re walking rather than when
you’re in a car or on a motorcycle. Walking is fun when you’re in a group, too. You
get to enjoy strolling under the moon and stars at night going back to your hotel.
It’s a lot of bonding and you get to save money for something better.
