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.

Rancho Cancio Part 3

If you missed the first two posts on Racho Cancio, click here and here.

Rancho Cancio requires a minimum charge for those who wish to rent this farm. Additional charges will be applied to the exceeding number of guests.

This is their “dirty” kitchen.  Pretty fancy, huh? I want one, honestly.

This is the farm’s living room.  It is very relaxing and breezy.

Rancho Cancio Part 2

In case you missed the first part of the fun, head over to this link for part 1!

So, being a water baby that I am, it is imperative that I dedicate a blog entry exclusively for Rancho Cancio’s infinity pool.

Unbeknownst to many, I have this strong affinity to wood flooring.  I could not imagine where they got those gorgeous woods!

Those two at the end are actually jacuzzis.  You can request the caretakers to turn the bubbles on.

Rancho Cancio Part 1

I bet you’ve heard of this hidden gem by now.  I am publicly professing my love and adoration to this farm that I am allocating 3 entries here.

Rancho Cancio is a family rest house that is rented out on a pre-arranged basis and is exclusive to one group only.

This was a long-awaited team building for us since Rancho Cancio is almost always booked.

Rancho Cancio is located in Adlanon, Busay, Cebu, an hour of scenic ride from Cebu City.  I can literally say that the road getting there is “a road less traveled”.  It requires a highly-skilled driver familiar with the steep and muddy road to get you there safely. In this case, we hired a highly recommended driver.

The moment I set my eyes on this farm, I was… subdued (in a good way!).

Rancho Cancio is very quiet.  Relaxing. Private. Beautiful.

Interstate Video

I am from the Philippines where travelling 100+ miles could actually mean spending your entire day in a ferry or a bus.   Whenever I get the chance to travel to America, I take advantage of land travel.  There, I get to be in a completely different state in a matter of, say, 2 hours. 🙂

I recently got a GoPro Hero3+ and I tested it out on the road.  It’s pretty great considering that I get to put it on the dashboard and not worry about anything (unlike my dslr).

This was taken on a road trip to Ohio via Interstate 75 north on a fine, sunny Sunday.

Here, take a look.  What do you think?

Bantayan Island, Cebu, Philippines

One of Cebu’s finest; a place that can equally compete against Boracay’s pride sans the parties and people.  It is mostly undeveloped and definitely not overcrowded (except Holy Week when it is also their fiesta).

I hope the pictures can do some justice.
