Imagine sinking into a welcoming hot spring pool on a frigidly cold day, while you unperturbedly sip on that calming cup of Chinese tea as time passes by slowly. Guess what? You’re only a flight away from relaxing hot springs and utter bliss!

Palawan province south of the Philippine capital has enamoured many an adventurer with its famed Underground River, Tubbataha Reef and exclusive resorts in El Nido. On the northern tip of the province, the Calamian group of islands beckons to travellers willing to forego luxury comforts for unspoilt natural beauty. It is here, on these sparsely populated islands, that I found myself smitten by the homeland I am only beginning to explore.
