I hadn’t realized how huge of a country Philippines really is until I observed it from the sky. It’s an island with a thousand other islands within other islands. Palawan Island, for example, is an archipelagic province which itself is composed of roughly 1,780 islands and islets. One of these is our destination, Coron Island. A natural beauty of tropical paradise. It’s where island life doesn’t get anymore authentic than this. In fact, Palawan has been named “Best Island in the World” year after year by top travel publications, from Travel + Leisure to Destinations of the World magazines. The island is in an awe-striking state of calm, deeming it the ideal place to truly unwind amidst nature. Its nothing but pure bliss. Actually, I believe that today’s world is so inundated with tourists and human activity, it is becoming more rare to bear witness to a place that is still so serene, raw and pristine. This is an escape from civilization to a certain degree, as Coron is a self-sustaining island.
Perched right on the Island’s tip was our bungalow, that we would be calling home for the next few days. And it was truly magical!
