Throwback: Coron 2009-2010

This year Palawan was awarded “Best Island” by Condé Nast Traveler, beating other world-famous islands such as Bora-Bora and Moorea in the French Polenesia, and even our own Boracay. But this isn’t the first time the Visayan island has landed global lists. The past few years we’ve seen the steady rise in popularity of Palawan’s three sub-islands—Puerto Princesa, Coron, and El Nido.

I’ve been to Coron twice, in 2009 and 2010—long before I launched this travel and lifestyle blog. Join me as a take a stroll down memory lane and see why Palawan bested all the other islands in the world.
