Puerto Princesa International Airport is the main airport serving the area of Puerto Princesa, in Palawan province of the Philippines. As of 2015, only AirAsia Zest, Air Juan, Cebu Pacific, Philippine Airlines, and PAL Express fly to Puerto Princesa and majority of these flights are domestic flights. In 2014, the Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC) in the Philippines contracted the development of a new international airport. Envisioned as an international gateway into popular tourist spots in Palawan, the new airport will be able to handle 2 million passengers annually. The current airport only has capacity to handle 350,000 annually, but has been carrying up to 1.3 million passengers. Puerto Princesa’s new airport is expected to be fully operational by early 2017 (as of December 2015). Given its small size, the airport only has basic facilities such as several cafes and eateries in or around the airport. Do note that during departure, there is a terminal fee of 200 pesos for domestic flights and 700 pesos (HKD$116) for international flights. The currency used in Philippines is the Philippine peso, which has an exchange rate of HKD$1 to 6.05 pesos.
Puerto Princesa Airport is conveniently located within the city center. Passengers are encouraged to catch a tricycle on the main road, and not the tricycles at the arrival area, which will cost between 7-10 pesos per person. Within the city center, the most common mode of transport are MultiCabs or tricycles. MultiCabs are minibuses in Philippines that can carry 10 to 15 people. Do note that tricycles may not travel to certain areas, so be sure to clarify before boarding. The standard tricycle fare around the city is between 30-150 pesos depending on the length of the journey, and travelers are advised to haggle the price down if the drivers have marked it up.
Affectionately known as a city within a forest, Puerto Princesa is famous for being the cleanest and greenest city in the Philippines and a paradise for nature lovers. The most famous destination in Palawan and the whole of Philippines is no doubt the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park, otherwise known as the Underground River. Voted globally as one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature, the national park covers a massive 22,000 hectares of land and is a treasure trove of biodiversity and natural land formations unique to this area. Besides jungle trekking and sunbathing, one of the more exciting and popular activities is adventure caving, which includes an underground river cruise and visits to spectacular karst formations. There is also a whole labyrinth of caves to explore, such as the Ugong Cave, Lions Cave, or the Daylight Hole. Travelers are required to obtain a permit to visit the underground river, and this can be purchased from the local government office one day before or through a travel agent.
