Visiting Palawan wouldn't be complete without a visit to Puerto Prinsesa Subterranean River National Park previously known as St.Paul's Subterranean National Park. As of 2012 it belonged to the New Seven Wonders of the World ( therefore, I'm down to 6 more that I need to visit @_@).
You have to book early if you want to visit the cave since they only allow around 1500 person per day, to of course preserve the location. It's truly an enjoyable 1 hour tour, you get to see a lot of formation when your inside. A reminder to all who wants to visit the underground river "Do not open your mouth if you're looking towards the ceiling of the cave". There are a lot of bats inside the cave, they may drop a bomb that could land inside your open mouth.
Here's a sneak peak on how beautiful the place is, sorry for some blurry shot.
