Palawan Paradise

Day 5: What was your dream destination?

One of the places I had on my Travel Wish List is Palawan - and specifically to see the limestone cliffs of Coron that I kept seeing on postcards and Facebook posts. So I love that I got to take my own touristy shot of beautiful Kayangan Lake.

What I love more is the fact that I saw a lot more than what I was expecting. The entire length of Coron island is practically made up of limestone cliffs and a good half-hour of the 2-hour boat ride to Culion was sailing past the rocky facade. It was amazing!

As if that wasn't enough, I woke up every day of my week on Culion to the sunrise. My corner room had an awesome view: Coron island was standing guard over the horizon.

Pure bliss.

Nikki, this is absolutely breathtaking!

We really wanted to go to Palawan on our trip home as well, but it wasn't in the budget - next time! (And I should ask you about your trip and take notes :) )

Thanks, Mia! Palawan was definitely one of the highlights of 2012. I went on an 8-day silent retreat on Culion, and celebrated Easter on beautiful Malcapuya Island. Unfortunately, I didn't get to explore Coron beyond Kayangan Lake because I had to be in KL for work. That was such a HUGE transition: One morning I was swimming in a sacred lake, the next morning I was back in a big, bustling city. Sob!

I'm sure you and A. will love it! :-)
