Here you can see Palawan on a Map (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/2/20/Ph_locator_map_palawan.png). It is a great place to travel to! Dont miss El Nido and - if you are a diver - Coron. about 8 years ago
There are nice beaches in Panglao, not so croweded but nice! Good places to dive as well! Rent a taxi for a day to go to the chocolate hills. In my view worth a day trip! about 8 years ago
Going to Cebu for about five days .... Want to score some beautiful beach time and find hot drinking spots... Hollar!
Cebu is not the nicest place on earth! There are some nice drinking places there... find them in Google.... If you want nice beaches consider to go to bohol. It is about 1-2 hours by boat and then a transfer (max 1h) to panglao island. There are nice beaches there. Unfortunately also a little quiet..... Nice beaches are also in Malapascua (maybe more a diver place), I have never been there but read nice things If you want party and beach, consider to go to boracay. Take a plane about 1h to caticlan and a short ride to the island. There are plenty spots... All you want! Have fun and enjoy your philippine staying!
