Palawan: The City in a Forest

Palawan is an island province of the Philippines located in Region 4. Its capital is Puerto Princesa City, and it is the largest province in the country. Palawan consists of 367 barangays and 23 municipalities, and two congressional districts that divide the province into north and south portions.

Palawan is one of the few relatively peaceful provinces in the country. The crime rate is relatively low and most Palawe├▒os are contented to lead simple lifestyles. The province is a melting pot of migrants from various parts of the Philippines and other countries.

Public transport within the islands consist of buses, vans and tricycles. There is a big well-organized transport terminal at the capital Puerto Princesa City, from where travelers can take off to other parts of Palawan. Private vehicles may also be hired from car rental companies. Traditional bancas or motorized outrigger boats can also be easily hired for hopping around the islands.
