Flight chronicles of the backpacker Tutubi, with travelogues, pictures/photos/videos, travel guides, independent and honest reviews, affordable, recommended resorts and hotels (including inns, guesthouses, pension houses, lodges, hostels, condotels, bed and breakfast and other cheap accommodations), commuting guides, routes (sometimes street maps and GPS coordinates/waypoints) and driving directions to answer "how to get there" questions, information and tips on tourism, budget travel and living in Philippines, Exotic Asia and beyond!
Backpacking, independent travel, and flashpacking are cheaper than the "cheapest package tours" and promotional offers around but you can also use travel information for family vacations, even romantic honeymoon destinations.
More than the usual tourist spots and "places to see," this blog advocates heritage conservation, environmental protection, and history awareness for Filipinos, foreigners, and ex-pats wishing to explore Paradise Philippines and Exotic Asia!
The gateway to the nature island of Palawan, Puerto Princesa Airport is served by flights from Manila, Cebu by several airlines flying in and out of this airport

From Puerto Princesa Airport to your destination:
There are no taxis/cabs in puerto Princesa but there are many tricycles (motorcycles fitted with sidecars) to ferry passengers to/from their destinations.
You can also find vans for hire at the airport if you're not alone or have lots of heavy baggage.
Outside the airport compound, you can flag jeepneys/multicabs to Puerto Princesa city proper or to other towns like Sabang, (Puerto Princesa to Sabang is about 2 hours travel time), if you're going to Puerto Pricesa Underground river, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
My wife and I are planning to explore Palawan but doesn't want to spend too much on accomodation. Do you have any recommendation as to where we should stay, so we're not too far from all the tourist spots in Palawan. Thanks in advance...
