Philippines: El Nido on Palawan

Leaving the island of Luzon (where Manila is) and moving to the southwestern island archipelago of Palawan. El Nido is the town in the north from where various boats trips to seemingly countless islands and natural wonders of the B archipelago are launched, from day trips to multi-week ones. El Nido itself is a tiny town of hotels and restaurants all located along the crescent of a spectacular bay surrounded by craggy limestone cliffs and mountains. The bay is filled with colorful boats that take you on trips by day, while the shore is lined up by seafood grill restaurants. Just pick the seafood you want from today’s catch, sit at a table with you feet in water, and enjoy the most insane sunset!
