The best part about visiting Palawan (El Nido and Coron) is that their tours are already organized into groups, depending on the sights that you want to visit. You can just choose which tour you want and you can already see a lot of sights in one day.
I rarely write reviews about the hotels that we stayed in (maybe because they’re mostly just budget hotels lol) but The Funny Lion is definitely an exception! I felt that I needed to write about our experience here because we actually didn’t want to leave the hotel. lol
The check-in was a breeze. Their lobby was un-airconditioned and open, and it was just so refreshing to see such a sight. Nice hotels usually have airconditioned and high ceiling lobbies but The Funny Lion’s lobby was quite unique. Sorry, I wasn’t able to take a photo of it because I only go there to connect to the wifi. lol (P.S. Their wifi is quite bad and there was no LTE signal inside our room.)
The hotel has two buildings, and this one is facing the pool. Our room was on the lower left side of the building in the photo below so it was really cool to have the pool just outside our room.
I played at the PFDA Ultimate Frisbee Nationals last May in Bacolod and an ultimate frisbee tournament always comes with a side trip. Right when we landed, we went straight to The Ruins. We rode a taxi to bring us to the Ruins and we paid Php 140 each for the taxi. There were 5 of us. The taxi driver just waited for us for an hour and dropped us off at our hotel after.

We toured around downtown Taipei on our last full day in Taiwan. As usual, we woke up late. lol Of course, I had to do a mirror shot before we went out of our apartment. lol

We started our third day in Taiwan with a trip to Jiufen Old Street. We woke up a little late, tired from all the hustlin we did at the Raohe Night Market the night before. 😉

We arrived late in the afternoon in Taipei after our wonderful trip to Yehliu. We had the bus drop us off at Zhongxiao Road and we just walked through the streets.

On our second day in Taiwan, we visited the Yehliu Geopark! I think this was one of the highlights of our entire trip. I’m not entirely sure how this natural beauty came to be but it’s just amazing to know that they were made out of natural causes.
We rode the bus to the Taipei Main Station from our airbnb apt and got on the Kee Keong Bus No. 1815. The stop for this one is located outside of the station, near the east gate. Once you enter the bus, you will receive a purple card from the driver. Payment will be made once you arrive at your destination. The bus ride costs NT 96 and the ride took about an hour.
