Palawan is an island province of the Philippines. The provincial capital is Puerto Princesa and it is the largest province in terms of land area.

It is one of the few places left in the archipelago that have not been `logged-out'.

The most common local language is Cebuano, but many speak English and a group of ex-patriate Swiss operate a shortwave radio network using swiss-German.

The island of Palawan stretches from Mindoro to Borneo in the southwest. It lies between the South China Sea in the northwest and Sulu Sea in the southeast.

Palawan is considered to be the Philippines' last ecological frontier. The province boasts of many splendid beaches and resorts and it is where the Tubbataha Reef National Marine Park, one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites, is located.

It was in Puerto Princesa where we had our honeymoon back in 2003. The last place I visited riding a plane.
