I flew an hour west of Manila to the region of Palawan where just a smattering of the Philippines 7,103 islands pop out of the ocean, to spend two nights staying in one of the fab El Nido resorts out here.
Here’s my photo blog of what to do and where to stay when you come – and I suggest you do!
Check out the towering limestone rock islands that pop out of the ocean. Any rock that can be seen at high tide is counted as an island here!

Round trip flight from Manila is around NZ$300 and your room rate inclusive of meals and activities (except spa treatment and SCUBA diving) starts at around NZ$450+ per room (for 2 people).
