Palawan, when will I visit you?

Palawan is a Philippine island, and is rated by National Geographic Traveler magazine as the best island destination in East and Southeast Asia region in 2007, and the 13th best island in the world having “incredibly beautiful natural seascapes and landscapes”. Regarding this, I want to visit its “underground river”. This is the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park. It features limestone karst mountain landscape with an 8.2km. navigable underground river. A distinguishing feature of the river is that it winds through a cave before flowing directly into the South China Sea. It also includes major formations of stalactites and stalagmites, and several large chambers. I want to experience sailing on it with a both with my family or friends and see the natural beauty of Palawan.
