Named one of the New Seven Wonders of Nature, the Puerto Princesa Underground River lives up to its name. Hands down, it is one of the most amazing places I have ever visited during my one year round the world adventure.
Formally known as the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park, the underground river is known as the second longest in the world, and was previously thought to be the longest. That was until they found an even longer underground river in Mexico.
My journey to the Puerto Princesa Underground River began in Manila when we boarded Cebu Pacific Airways to the famous island of Palawan. Currently, there is only one international flight that goes to Palawan, and that’s from Taiwan. However, there is talk of opening more direct international routes in the coming years, which will bring in more tourists worldwide.
