Palawan—in so many ways—remains quaint and rustic. It is underdeveloped, which can be a good thing especially for those whose pursuit is the real essence of the place. But it is an innate character of the Filipinos to be as accommodating as possible especially to the outsiders, the foreign, the visitors. So the city, Puerto Princesa, and the cluster of islands in northern Palawan—El Nido and Coron—try to accommodate the whims of its visitors.
Although the nightlife here is not as wild, not as crowded as Manila’s or Cebu’s, Palawan’s is worth checking. Locals sometimes go out, dance, and have a drink before hitting the sack.
While the nightlife in big cities is a large attraction in itself, here in Palawan, it is a just punctuation, a break from a day filled with activities and awesomeness. Here most people—locals and visitors alike—do not stay up till the wee hours in the morning. Why? Because there are islands, beaches, marine paradise, and more waiting for them the following day.
Partying is at the bottom of the list for the travelers in Palawan. They come here for its natural wonder, for its beautiful topographical features. Although the nightlife strives to equal Manila’s or Cebu’s, it is still very rustic in so many ways. It is quite unlikely to find bars and dance clubs that play trance or house music. There are no DJs either. It is either a disco club that plays pop music or bars that have live reggae music or love songs on. But the flow of alcohol never stops in this side of Palawan. Nights in northern Palawan end early as well. Since this place is one of the top diving sites in the country, visitors hit the sack early and get up at the break of dawn for an early dive.
