The last frontier of the Philippines, Palawan, made another achievement on international headlines as it was decalred as one of the World’s Best in Travel 2013: Top 10 Regions. The island of Palawan was even dubbed as “The Ultimate archipelago for adventurers.”

The popular travel guide book and website posted on their official website on October 23, 2012 some of the world’s best in travel for 2013: Top 10 regions. The list was dominated by Corsica, France that tops the list and was named as “Melting pot of Med to host Tour. ”

The official website of the Lonely Planet called Palawan as best for off the beaten track, adventure and culture.

The Lonely Planet cite Palawan as:

“Palawan incorporates thousands of sparkling, rugged islands and is fringed by 2,000 km of pristine coastline. So far Palawan’s natural marvels have only been sampled by plucky backpackers. Not for much longer. The trail these pioneers have blazed is set to explode, with regional airlines waking up to Palawan’s potential and clambering to schedule direct flights to the capital. Throw in the mushrooming growth of style-conscious boutique hotels normally found in places like Ko Samui or Bali, and you can feel that Palawan is ready to hit the big-time in 2013.”
