It was our first time to be in Palawan last October, 2008. My colleagues and I had our official business trip with an industry in the province and we visited one of Palawan's best destinations in Puerto Princesa which was just a detour on the last day. We visited first the Mitra's Ranch in Sta. Monica Heights. On the left shows the main entrance to the ranch of the late Senator Ramon Mitra. It is currently the residence of his son. The ranch has a great view of Palawan.
On the left is the front of the mansion, while on the right is the area in front of the mansion overlooking Palawan.
After a quick stroll around around the mansion, we immediately moved to Baker's Hill, see my Baker's Hill post.
BALAY INATO PENSION
Finally, eating time at Balay Inato Pension. This is famous for its Haim Chicken Inato and is known to be the first chicken house in Puerto Princesa. Despite of the not-so-good weather, people can not resist their best delicacies and of course the best scenery within the Pension area.
On the left photo, there are arrays of small and red cottages for people who wish to dine and chat with friends and family members. On the right photo, there are small and pink houses built for visitors who opt to stay for a vacation.
I apologize for not taking more pictures of the three best destinations in the city. Like I said, this was our last day on a business trip and these visits were just detours. We also needed to leave on the same day...too bad! Anyway, I assumed I was able to give some information of three of Palawan's best havens. Despite of our tight schedule, we were able to take a peek of some interesting scenes in the city. Truly, more fun in the Philippines!
Until next time, God bless!
