Puerto Princesa more than just the underground river PDF Print E-mail

PUERTO PRINCESA, Palawan - Puerto Princesa is just an hour's flight away from Manila, and with 21 daily flights, there's no excuse why Filipinos shouldn't head to the so-called City in a Forest.

With the underground river now officially one of the 7 New Wonders of Nature, tourists have been flocking to Puerto Princesa this summer.

The Puerto Princesa Underground River is undeniably one of the main attractions of the city, but its popularity means that it's getting harder to get a slot on the tour. Only a certain number of boats are allowed to enter the underground river at a time, so slots are limited.

“Life begins at 40”. This old adage will be the maxim of the participants in the Veterans event of the 2012 FIM Asia Motocross Championship, the continent’s premiere motocross series which will unfold in Puerto Princesa City on April 12-15. Aptly titled the Asian Veterans class, the event is open to all physically fit and able senior riders (40-55 years of age) from the FIM Asia member federations. The Veterans are allowed to use bikes with a displacement of up to 450cc (4-stroke).

This year marks the ninth straight year that Mayor Edward S. Hagedorn and his constituents are hosting the country’s biggest annual spectator motorsport event. The event which coincides with one round of the Philippine national motocross series has never failed to thrill and excite the thousands who troop to the city’s world-class racetrack in Barangay Sta. Monica each year since it was launched in 2004. Sponsors of this year event are the City of Puerto Princesa, Asia Brewery, Polisport, Repsol, Kia Palawan and Shakeys.
