It's amazing to know that there is still a place in the Philippines which is really clean and safe such as PP Palawan. There is a no littering law in PP which in my opinion is successfully being implemented there. When I went in PP for the first time this May 2013, I can really see that the city is the cleanest City I've been in the Philippines. I heard that there is a fine if anyone is caught littering. Our tour guide mentioned about the law of cutting trees in PP too. It's illegal to cut a tree in PP. I think if you cut 1 tree and got caught, you have to plant 5 (not sure how many though) in exchange.
In terms of safety, our tour guide mentioned that there is a low crime in PP, no wonder why we did not see police or security guard in places we visited during our stay there. Kudos for Mayor Hagedorn for maintaining a safe and clean Puerto Princesa.
We stayed in a hotel near the airport and just across the Kina Butch Restaurant which seems to me like a famous hangout for tourists and locals. You can try the crocodile meat in this restaurant. Pricing is average to a bit expensive.
There are a lot of tricycles plying here and there. I noticed the courtesy of the tricycle drivers too. This is an additional good experience in PP too especially for tourists.
The Best experience in PP is visiting the Underground River. It's very entertaining and educational. The rock and mineral formations inside the cave are fantastic. The Honda bay experience was a great experience too which include a visit in Cowrie Island, Pambato Reef and LuLi Island.
