Palawan Island Itinerary for November

For the past few weeks, we have been working hard (google'ing') on my do-it-yourself (DIY) itinerary for my Palawan Island trip on November (three days after my wedding).

Since this is my 'budget honeymoon' trip, I MUST arrange everything nicely, especially my mom, little brother, cousin and her 4-year-old daughter are joining me and hubby-to-be. I don't think backpacking is going to work for them, but mom insist to follow my style. Well, we'll see...

I have done a little bit of research on Palawan Island, and I am planning to go to Puerto Princesa and El Nido for this one week trip. Please advice for any additional information or better accommodation.

DAY 1
-Flight from KK-Clark
-Flight from Clark to Puerto Princesa (Arrive at 5.50pm)
-Check-in at Duchess Pension (optional)

DAY 2
-Puerto Princesa Underground River (PHP1500/ pax)

DAY 3

-Six hours travel to El Nido by bus
-Check-in at El Nido View Deck (optional)

DAY 4
-Island Hopping (Whole Day)
El Nido by Sabrina Iovino

DAY 5
-Island Hopping (Half-day)
-Camping

DAY 6
- Rent a bike (go around the island)

DAY 7
-Travel from El Nido to Puerto Princesa
-Flight from Puerto Princesa to Clark
-Check-in at Clark (need suggestions)
-Clubbing?

DAY 8
-Flight from Clark to KK

THINGS TO BRING:
Enough clothes
Swimming Clothes
Towel
Tissue
IMPORTANT: Toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant, soap, etc.
Flashlight
Personal Medication
Sunblock
Camera
Snacks
Small bag while walking around
Small bottle of water to be refilled once in a while

I have been to Boracay Island before, but this is my first time to Palawan Island. Boracay is a haven on earth, and my expectation on Palawan is quite high. I am hoping I won't be disappointed, especially looking at the lovely pictures of El Nido from the internet.

I really need help here, especially on the accommodation. I have emailed Duchess Pension but they required deposit, which is too early to decide now. I will reconfirm payments a month before the trip because I still need time to do some research from trip advisor or virtual tourist.

Anyone?

your itinerary is good, though you need to add one or two days in el nido to see all interesting sites. try kayaking inside the lagoons. its fun.
