Palawan cited as one of the world's Best Budget Travel Destinations for 2017

Here's a good excuse to travel more this year.


( "The Philippines is heating up as a destination for 2017," says Forbes contributor Alexandra Talty in an article on the American business magazine dated December 27, 2016. She listed the Best Budget Travel Destinations for 2017 and put Palawan, the westernmost island province in the Philippines, on the eighth spot.


This comes as no surprise since the island has been lauded time and again as one of the best islands in the world (if not the best) by international travel websites and magazines. "Palawan is where the magic still remains a little more untouched and quiet compared to popular, Boracay Island (which we do love)," Talty continues.


Some of the places that made it on the list are Northern Vietnam, Bishkek in Kyrgyzstan, Lisbon in Portugal, Seoul in South Korea, and Bucharest in Romania.


Book your flight now and cross off Palawan on your bucket list this 2017!
