Day Trip Guide to Sabang, Palawan

If you ever feel like getting out of Puerto Princesa for a day, you may want to consider going on a day trip to Sabang, Palawan. This is a day trip guide to Sabang, Palawan if you feel like doing so.

Sabang, Palawan is most famous for the Subterranean River (aka Underground River), one of the Seven New Wonders of the World. Far away from the main attraction is Sabang’s best-kept secret: long, endless, secluded coastline!

How to get there:

A day trip to Sabang, Palawan is not so hard to do. You can hire a tricycle from anywhere in the city to the “New Market” terminal in San Jose.  I paid P60 for the trip from where I was staying (near Robinson’s Place) to the terminal. There are two ways to get to Sabang: by bus or by van (Lexxus Shuttle). See below. If you’re feeling adventurous, hire a motorbike from the rental shops along Rizal Avenue.

The Thanksgiving Week That Was

I must admit that this trip started on the wrong foot.  It’s true what they say:  “First impressions don’t last”. This trip has proven that.

I’ve been to numerous solo trips but this El Nido trip turned out to be, by far, the most memorable.  Sure, El Nido is beautiful but it’s the people you meet along the road that make it all worthwhile.

It was here that I met the most people from different facets of life.

Rarely do I get to meet solo female travellers.  Here, I met Faith.  Her family is from Cebu but they are now based in Canada. As of this writing, she is on her way to Australia. In the next few weeks, she’ll go on her 5-month trip around Asia.

It’s amazing how you can connect with people without ever saying a word.  If you can make people comfortable, they’ll open up. It’s just that simple.

I never got this man’s name but we sure did connect and shared some stories of our trips.  He’s from Argentina and wanted to check out the most beautiful island in the world, Palawan.  I wanted to invite him over to Nacpan beach but he had to leave for Australia.

Whenever I visit someplace new, I always make it a point to talk to locals and check if there are other places worth visiting. It never hurts to stop by and say hi and see how they’re doing.
