Kinabuchs is a place for those who love the open-air and are not afraid to try some Filipino delicacies. They do serve the usual beers and Filipino favorites, but they also offer the tamilok – woodworms that are said to taste like oysters. The Crossing Bridge Café is not your typical bar and club hangout, but they do have the perfect outdoor atmosphere for iced coffee and other cold drinks.

You have two choices to get to Puerto Princesa: either by air or by sea. If you choose to take a plane, book your flights in Cebu Pacific, Seair, or Zest Air.

What our experts tell about this experience.
While in Puerto Princesa, my friends and I jumped from beach party to another! They're not big and wild but of for sure, once a crowd performs a crowd.. It gets noisy, it gets loud and then the fun? Bring it on! We were drinking like fish and woke up with a massive hangover! But we had lots of fun and would like to come back again sometime soon.
I had a great experience tasting one of the Filipino dishes.. It's a worm dish. Tastes like oysters as every says it does.. for me I found it a bit more sea-ish kind of taste, if you know what I mean. This dish is called "Timilok"! Go ahead and try! After dining, my friends and I went to shake it off at Tiki. They have a great dance floor and great music too!
