Located in Puerto Princesa City, this ASTA Cultural Heritage tour highights the Palawan Butterfly Eco Garden and Tribal Village showcase Palawan’s rich biodiversity and indigenous culture. Here, visitors can interact with colorful butterflies and see endemic species, such as the bear cat and bearded pig. More importantly, visitors get to know the Palaw’an, one of the indigenous people of the province, whose members reside in the Tribal Village while they are in the city. For visitors, the Palaw’an people demonstrate how to start a fire without matches, play traditional gongs and cowhide drums, and how they use blow darts for hunting in the wild. This cultural sharing is a testament to their wish to preserve their dying culture.
This culture spot is a part of a package tour. Another part is the comfortable yet affordable accommodation in Puerto Pension Inn, our green hotel partner. Puerto Pension Inn has been awarded the ANAHAW Philippine Sustainable Tourism Certification by the Department of Tourism. It is easy to see why: the inn offers budget accommodation with a generous dose of local charm — traditional woven mats that lend bursts of color throughout the property, local art pieces, and hand-carved images.
The tour includes visits to historical places. The Palawan Special Battalion Word War II Memorial War Museum houses a vast collection of war memorabilia collected by Higinio “Buddy “Mendoza Jr. Buddy built the museum in honor of his father, Dr. Higinio Mendoza Sr., considered as Palawan’s greatest hero. The Palawan Heritage Center is another place where visitors can know more about Palawan’s history, indigenous groups, notable cultural places found throughout the province, and the thriving local art scene. Sunset watching along The Bay Walk must not be missed, if only for the beautiful view of the sunset that it offers.
Trying local flavors is also part of the tour. Chef Joi Oliva of Ka Joel’s Restaurant has put together a special ASTA menu that celebrates the bounties of Palawan. The PPUR salad (named after the UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Puerto Princesa Underground River) is made of fresh papaya, mangos, turnips, and seaweed. The chicken binakol is native chicken stewed in coconut water. The cocotopus is a dish of octopus in coconut cream and garlic.
The tour is undertaken in partnership with Trio Queen Travel & Tours.
