DIY Puerto Princesa City Tour

You can get a City Tour package of Puerto Princesa for Php600 or more. Ours we got for only Php100/head! We asked a tricycle driver to tour us in the city. There are a lot of places to visit but what we just wanted to see were the Crocodile Farm and Baker’s Hill.

Crocodile Farm

Entrance Fee: Php40/head

You will be given a briefing by a guide before you start the tour. The guide will bring you to the area where crocodiles are kept after which you will be given the time to explore their nature park. Not really much to see if you’ve been to Avilon Zoo.

As you exit the place, there is an area where you can have your picture taken with the biggest baby crocodile, Kiko. Taking a picture with the baby crocodile costs only Php30 and the print out of your picture (if you want to have it) costs Php150 each.

Baker’s Hill

We wanted to see this place because it’s one of the places where you could buy goodies (pasalubong) that you could bring back home. Much to my surprise, it does not only sell pastries but it also is a dining place. The ambience is great and I could imagine how wonderful it is at night. Too bad we already had a reservation at Kahlui’s.

Other places to visit during the city tour includes Mitra’s Ranch, Penal Colony, and Butterfly Garden.

Puerto Princesa 3D/2N Itinerary

We were able to book a fairly cheap flight to Puerto Princesa. Php1150.33 MNL to Puerto Princesa via AirPhil and Php749.52 Puerto Princesa to MNL via CebuPac. We booked 2 rooms for 2 nights at GoHotel for Php1412.

As I scoured through the internet for places to visit in Puerto Princesa, I came up with the itinerary below. I had to fit most of the must-see places in 2 days since we have a morning flight on our last day. But, of course, that was the plan. Some unexpected things happened and we had to adjust. We decided to forego the Firefly watching as the bridge going there was said to be under construction. Our Honda Bay lacked Snake Island which I was looking forward to spending time bathing under the sun, because it was closed as DENR is doing some conservation activities in the island although some locals say that Willie Revillame had it closed for himself. Our City Tour was just at Crocodile Farm and Baker’s Hill since we were not so much into the other sites for the tour (or maybe we were all just eager to go back to the hotel and freshen up).
