Part 4: Coron town, Mt. Tapyas and Maquinit Hot Spring

My most favorite part of Palawan is Coron and my exploration of this wonderful place is far from over.
You can visit my other posts of Coron on this link.

There's not really much to see around town but we did try to walk around
and explore a bit.

This is where people would point you to go to when you ask for the souvenir shop.

They said this was a good place to hang out at night.
We went there for lunch hee hee

The menu looked interesting.

So I had Bicol Express Octopus!
exotic food

Main transportation here is the tricycle.
I laughed when we took this one trike and it had this Manila signage.

On our way to Mt. Tapyas.
We were too many inside the trike so the driver made us walk because the hill was steep.

After the hill, we had steps to take.

Reached 100 steps.

200 steps!

300 is missing. I don't know why we did not have a photo on it but for sure we went through it or else we would not have reached 400!!!

500 and still smiling!


700 steps

We lost count after this. Maybe because we got so excited to see the end.
Though I think it was around 724....I think.

What are these men with DSLR doing?

Of course . . .  trying to get these wonderful shots.

A photo with our guide there.
(he was always late and missing in action . . . with our experience,
I don't recommend him)

This is what we came up for.

We were so happy to see this.
We were really exhausted from the tour but this took our breath away.

One of my favorite sunsets is here in Coron.


After Mt. Tapyas, we headed to Maquinit hot spring via tricycle.

We had our dinner here.

I was too exhausted to dip again in the water after being on the sea for two whole days.

There was a moment where there was power failure but those few minutes were wonderful. We saw  millions of stars and a couple of  fireflies glowing in the still dark night.

This was our last day and it was a trip back to Busuanga airport.
It was like a Marlboro Country there with cows and hills. Just a beauty.

Who said that the chocolate hills are in Bohol? They also have it here.

Inside the airport.
See that guy sleeping behind me???

My seat mate on the plane . . . all buckled up!

I thought it was over when I said goodbye at the airport. 

My aerial view and shot!!!

I still saw the sunset up there and it was just amazing to see the view from the top!!!

some photos were taken by travel buds Carol and Chando
