POSTCARDS | The Karsts of El Nido | Lakad Pilipinas

Two times in Puerto Princesa, twice in Coron; but never in El Nido. Like most Filipino’s, I thought El Nido was only for the rich folks, but travel bloggers proved me wrong.

The limestone rock formations dotting the turquoise waters of this Palawan town are something else. I have never seen so many craggy rocks overgrown with clinging greens in a single place.

And then the old inevitable question arises; which is more beautiful El Nido or Coron? Let me spend a few more days in this paradise before I give my answer.

  1. Even Puerto Princesa is teeming with Karsts Mountains. I haven't encountered the word Karsts itself until my Palawan trip. They're a thing of grandeur and beauty.

  2. i envy u.. wish to see that place soon.

  3. Waahha! Ako din gusto ko malaman sagot mo. Hmm.. prang hindi ko nagawa ang mkasaysayang comparative report na yan. Chos!
