puerto princesa accommodation: skylight hotel palawan

almost five years ago, in february 2008 - i had the privilege of visiting one of the most beautiful places in the country. i've longed to go back there, but somehow haven't had the chance to return YET. i'm not certain if i'll be able to in the future. thus, this post and future posts will be my attempt at reminiscing the good old days. i hope to cover before this year ends, all the places i've been to in the past years both here, some parts of southeast asia, and seoul korea. while the pictures i'll be using may not be updated, rest assured that i will research on new information to make things relevant. i'm starting with palawan because i'm helping out a friend plan his and wife's future trip to beautiful palawan. hopefully, it will help them and whoever may chance and stumble upon my little place on the web.

in february 2008, while in puerto princesa palawan we stayed at the Skylight Apartelle.
We chose to stay at this apartelle because of its proximity to the airport. Skylight is just less than ten minutes away from the airport and seaport. It's also just a walking distance to various establishments such as banks and restaurants. It's conveniently located at the heart of puerto princesa, specifically at 210 - A. Rizal Avenue, Puerto Princesa City.

The above is the apartelle's side entrance. We passed through here because there was a wedding reception at their restaurant when we arrived. Yes, you enter the restaurant first before you get to the apartelle. The maroon van in the picture is the van that picked us up at the airport. Airport transfer is free.
