Puerto Princesa is the second largest city in the Philippines. But even so, you can totally backpack your way all throughout its northern part. Whether you want to explore the underground river, hop on to the famous islands, or just give it a go to the inland destinations, all can be arranged in one package. Even including a five or maybe four-star hotel accommodation. This was the set up we had last October of 2014. For three days and two nights we managed to swing by with all the famous tourist spots.

If you’re from Manila, Philippines and you want an easy ride with the thrill of not actually going there easy, take this bus from Manila to Naga and experience the 8 hour-long ride. Take a plane for a much easier ride. Continue reading Hitch One: Caramoan
