During our trip to Puerto Princesa, on our second city tour, we visited attractions that are outside the city proper. We went to Irawan Eco Park in the morning where we tried the zipline, then to see the crocodiles and endemic animals at PWRCC. Our next stop was Mitra’s Ranch and Baker’s Hill where we had a view of Honda Bay atop the Sta Monica hills. After enjoying the cool breeze at Mitra’s Ranch and adoring the manicured gardens at Baker’s Hill we took off down south to check the Binuatan Handloom Weaving Creations and left at around 3:00 pm to head back to the city.
Since our last meal was during breakfast and just ate some of the hopia that we bought from Baker’s Hill, we already felt hungry by the time we arrived at Binuatan. We were supposed to go to Vietnamese Village after Irawan Eco Park which is far up north of Puerto Princesa and further than the Sta Lourdes Wharf, because I’ve read from blog reviews that it’s in Viet Ville that you can taste authentic Vietnamese cuisine in Palawan. But our tour guide during our Honda bay Island Hopping Tour said that we need not go that far since we can also find authentic-tasting ones in the city and she recommended that we go to Rene Saigon Vietnamese Specialties.
