Puerto Princesa City

Puerto Princesa is the capital city of the Philippine province, Palawan. It is the second largest city but the least densely populated city in the Philippines. It is also well-known as the cleanest and greenest city in the Philippines, making it a popular tourist destination.

A lot of travel agencies offer city tour packages which you can easily avail online. But, if you are not a fan of these, you can just hop onto a tricycle and have your own city tour. If you researched beforehand, you can just tell the tricycle drivers where to go. If you are not prepared, it's okay because the tricycle drivers are also very well aware where to take you.

Here are some of the places you can include in your city tour itinerary if you happen to visit the beautiful city of Puerto Princesa. 

Palawan  Wildlife Rescue and Conservation Center

Located in Barangay Irawan, this destination is more commonly known as the Crocodile Farm. Managed by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, it serves as a sanctuary for endemic Philippine crocodiles. 

A large crocodile skeleton and its skin welcomes the guests on the entrance of the building. There is also a Hatchling House where freshwater and salt-lake crocodiles are being bred. 

You can try feeding the crocodiles too. You just need to pay for a minimal amount for you to experience this.   The center provides interesting and educational guidance in the Crocodile Farm only. Visitors are now left to wander the Nature Park. 

Aside from crocodiles, the center also boasts many other animals in the Nature Park such as the bear cat, monkeys, snake, birds and many other.

Mitra's Ranch

Located in Sta. Monica Heights, this ranch is owned by the family of the late Philippine Senator Ramon Mitra. It presents a breathtaking view of the Puerto Princesa City. This is a good place to rest, relax and just enjoy the fresh air and the great view.

But if you're feeling adventurous, you can try the Ranch Zip Line Adventure.

 Baker's Hill

Famous for its delicious baked goods, Baker's Hill is actually a theme park. Still in Sta. Monica Heights, this place is ideal for family and kids to hang out and enjoy. For tourists, it's good to drop by to buy goodies to take back home. 

Immaculate Conception Cathedral

This cathedral is built in 1961 in honor of the city's Patron Saint, Immaculate Conception of Mary.
