Palawan is considered one of the most beautiful islands not only in the Philippines but in the world. The island’s stunning, white-sand shores, cerulean waters, vibrant underwater ecosystems, and towering limestone formations all contribute to its wonder. Many local and foreign tourists make their way to El Nido, Coron, Puerto Princesa and other parts of the island to experience its beauty first-hand.
If you’ve already been to Palawan, you might want to have a different experience when you return. Glamping has become popular over the years; it combines the best of both worlds — natural and the comforts of a hotel (in some cases). When you “glamp” you get to be with nature but not give up comfy beds, tables, electricity, and others.
These are glamping destinations in Palawan. The tents provide comfortable accommodation for a good night’s sleep or just a place to relax and unwind. The facilities and services will make you feel like you’re staying in a hotel.
