Visiting Palawan is a mandatory bucket list. Cruise along Palawan's UNESCO World Heritage Site, a 8.2 km underground river before jumping aboard an island hopping adventure around Palawan's beach paradise. Dive amongst historic shipwrecks or laze the day away on fine white sand sun soaked beaches before an afternoon adventure canoeing through limestone rocks and take a swim amongst the marine life. Swim snorkel or snooze? What will you choose?
How to get there: Fly with Cebu Pacific or Philippines Airline from Singapore to Puerto Princesa (PPS).

The waters around Coron are filled with WWII shipwrecks and the Japanese ship known as Skeleton Wreck is shallow enough that snorkelers can appreciate the wreck and coral reef that has formed on it. The stern of Skeleton Wreck lies in just 5 meters (16 feet) of water and with a dry snorkel, you can easily free-dive down for a closer look.
