3D Outreach Activities

A Palawan escapade By Hashem

There are many islands to visit in the Philippines. One of the top summer vacation for tourists is Palawan ( one of the top wonders in the world ) due to its rock formation below and above the water surrounding the place. With its panoramic view and picturesque scenery, you totally can’t help but to fall in love with this place.The island is the largest island in the province of Palawan, containing an abundance of wildlife and jungle mountains. It is mostly undeveloped in the island. That’s why it’s so exotic for the international travelers – the virgin jungles! Palawan Island is 280 miles long and 31 miles wide. The capital city of the island is Puerto Princessa.


Apart from the sumptuous food and its beautiful environment, traveling with cheerful buddies is absolutely one of the best experiences I could ever encounter. The best way to get to this awe stricken place is depending on your own preferences as well as your starting point. Some may rely on the travel agency to refrain themselves from all the hassles and stress. But you know,  it takes a lot of penny out of your precious pocket – you know what I meant ). Or you could simply tag along with some friends you met in the school to join this vacation trip. This is much cheaper this way and fun!

As for my team and I , we had it planned by ourselves. From 3D Academy where we were located, we took a cab going to the airport. When we arrive at the destination – Puerto Princessa, we had our pick up van waiting for us to lead us to our choice of beach Resort. Well, I would say that our plan was very well laid and thought throughout.

Our plan went this way:

  1. Kuyba Acnoneca (Jesus Face/ Underground spring pool/ rustic church/ fish spa).
  2. Butterfly Garden and indigenous tribe
  3. Bakers hill w/h dinner
  4. Island hoping (3 island w/h lunch) + firefly watch w/h dinner
  5. Underground river + Mangrove paddle boat tour
  6. Plaza curtail + ww2 marmoreal park


Sounds tiring yet it was full of excitement ~ especially when your are surrounded by people who are full of cheerful demeanor and at the same time has the same interest as you, there will be absolutely no dull moments around.


Somehow, there are various activities you can enjoy along with your friends such as bird watching, mountain trekking, and exploring the deeper part of the forest.

However,  never miss the longest navigable underground river and reputedly the most beautiful subterranean river in the world. Its main attraction is an 8.2 kilometer Underground River that winds through a spectacular cave, at the mouth of the cave, a clear lagoon is framed by ancient trees growing right to the water’s edge. Monkeys, large monitor lizards, and squirrels find their niche on the beach near the cave.

Definitely one of the most unforgettable trip in my journey here!


*Moral of the story, you should enroll in a school before traveling in the Philippines islands! Come join us in 3D :)))
