Amid the COVID-19 pandemic and the uncertainties hitting the Philippines, priding news greets the country as December approaches—indeed, an early gift to Pinoys.

The love and support of international readers of the UK online magazine, Wanderlust poured into Filipinos after they selected Palawan as the WORLD’S MOST DESIRABLE ISLAND. The announcement came on November 9, 2022 (November 10 in Manila).

One of the best travel destinations in Palawan, quoted in a statement of the online publication, is Kayangan Lake in Coron. Wanderlust said, “the scenery here (Palawan) is heaven on earth with sparkling waters and white sand beaches. One of the most photographed sites is Kayangan, a dazzling freshwater lake with spectacular rock formations above and below the surface.”  In addition, Kayangan is the cleanest lake in Asia, according to Guide to the Philippine travel website. The crystal-clear water allows the visitors to see the lake bed or the bottom part that amazes them.

Wanderlust also commended Palawan for the underground river in Puerto Princesa and its delicious cuisine. The underground river, with a length of 8.2 kilometers, is one of the most spectacular sites to explore in the province. Meanwhile, Cebu soars higher after being nominated Most Desirable Region (Rest of the World). We can say that the Philippines is a world-class tourist destination following various recognitions recently and the previous years.

With how the world recognizes Palawan, do not hesitate to visit one of the provinces—Coron. It is home to several white sand beaches and the shipwreck diving capital of the Philippines. Foreigners flock in and out of Coron because of its unique beauty, whether inland or underwater. Moreover, it houses the Calauit Safari in Busuanga, a neighboring municipality of Coron. The vast wildlife sanctuary is a homestead of zebras, giraffes, Calamian deer, small crocodiles, a python, and others that attract travelers.

Not only does Coron, Palawan exhibits its one-of-a-kind wonders, but it also boasts its world-class accommodations. One of the go-to places for visitors in town is SkyLodge, a mountain and dive resort in Coron that is an Agoda Gold Circle Awardee from 2019 to 2020. Recently, it received a nine out of 10 review rating on Agoda. Just this year, on August 2, 2022, Trip Advisor named the resort number seven among the best places to stay in Coron.
