It has been a while since my last report, this is a continuation of this three (supposed to be four) part series. Dont worry though, as I have something in store for you….
And as I have promised from my last report, I have a tourist bonus (Yay!)
When we arrived from PPS, we immediately boarded our van to El Nido.
And after a 6 Hour ride, we were here, and first order of business: Dinner…
We had our first dinner in El Nido at El Nido Boutique and Artcafe, the food were good,but not excellent.
We took our hotel's island hopping tours, it is worth noting that there are four different tours, namely Tour A,B,C and D. Tours A&C has the highest demand, but if you want peace and quiet, you could take Tour B or D. I just picked random shots.
After 3 days of that, we then took their inland tours..
Nacpan Twin Beach- The view was stunning
And Las Cabanas- The sunset was lovely while having dinner
We then spent our last day there by eating lobsters
El Nido has beautiful beaches but you should not expect big malls and sprawling resorts, just the beach and humble establishments
Before going back to the City Center of Puerto Princesa, we went to the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River
After spending a day at Puerto Princesa, we went to Dos Palmas, a famous resort here in Palawan. You need to take a ride to Honda Bay, and a two hour boat ride to the resort
Here is our villa
The water is so pristine
I went scuba diving there, it was my first time ;)
After that, its time to go back to Puerto Princesa one again…
We had dinner at Ka Lui the night before our departure. Make sure to book reservations as the restaurant is jam packed during dinner.
I loved the ambiance
This centerpiece is beautiful!
I think there's a live band here but unfortunately they didn't perform that night.
I haven't tried this ceviche though
I don't usually like tuna but this was juicy and flavorful.
The fish in coconut sauce was excellent, I think this was the star for the night!
And oh, I forgot the lobster, there are so many lobsters in Palawan.
Who wouldn't love these lovely decorations?
Trip Proper Unfortunately, this was one of the last flights of Tigerair Philippines, as I have discovered a week later, its branding was changed to Cebgo. DG is still a part of Cebu Pacific though And after a good night's sleep, its time to go back home….
Here at the airport
Nothing much here at check in except for a long queue of people(Believe it'll take you two hours at most)….
And some shops…
I've got to say the airport is clean, but it doesn't look really architecturally exciting, I mean it's just white, compared to other international airports…
The kid's area is a nice touch though
And a TV to keep us company…
Since this is a one storey airport, its pretty hard to do plane spotting inside the terminal, so I have to do it outside, but only our plane was visible, I guess other flights have departed already…
I liked the fact that there was noone to scold me about not taking pictures of the plane ;)
And yup, that's the boring cover photo…
And after a while, we took off..
BOB commences, I usually buy BOB every time I fly with a LCC, so for this time, I ordered Blu (Flavored Water), a Cheese Roll, and a Pizza bun. All were good, but it could be better if they serve hot meals, or at least, hot sandwiches.
It isn't champagne, but well, I still have to take a picture of this…
Here's their magazine, it's pretty thick
The legroom is tight, but I don't feel any cramps, but I guess if this kind of seat was used for a long haul flight, then I guess it would hurt a little…
Well, after this my camera died (That was why I don't have any pictures of the fourth installment)… So I'm just gonna narrate the landing part
Landing was pretty bumpy, and the Airport looked like a chaos…… Nothing much to share…
If I have to compare between Cebu Pacific and PAL, it will be Cebu Pacific by a teeny bit. They don't have much differences, but Cebu Pacific's fares are usually cheaper than PAL's, and besides, why would I pay more for a cup of water and a pack of biscuits?? Besides, you can have a wider choice from buying from the menu but it will cost more. But as I have said, the fare is cheaper than PAL. Yeah, Full Service carriers have an advantage for international flights but LCCs have the upper hand in short routes
Anyways, that's the last installment, if you have any clarifications or questions, just put them on the comments section
Thanks for reading!!!

Puerto Princesa - PPS
Manila - MNL
A pretty good flight with Tigerair Philippines Seat=Your regular LCC seat, comfortable though ;) Crew=Somewhat robotic, but smiling (Does that even make sense???) Catering= Good, but better if they will serve hot meals IFE= Nothing visible, but a 180 Page magazine is good for a LCC OTP= Departed on time, Landed on time If I were to compare Cebu Pacific/Tigerair with PAL for domestic, I think I'll recommend Cebu Pacific because there isn't much of a difference in service and comfort...
PPS- Mediocre, but the airport seemed plain, but at least it is clean MNL T4- It's your regular NAIA airport that everyone patronizes... Very chaotic, and the highway has very heavy traffic...
