48 Hours on Oahu: Island Adventure and Relaxation

Get up early.

That’s my best advice for a two-day stay on my beautiful island of Oahu — though it would be the same if you were here for two weeks or two months. Not only is there so much to do that every hour counts, but some of the sweetest experiences can be savored only at dawn.

48 Hours on Oahu: Island Adventure and Relaxation

That time when we took a 'basic' tour of Coron

Coron is part of the Calamian Group of Islands, which serves as a jumping point for island-hopping adventures to other islands in the area as well as for the wide-range of exciting activities Palawan has to offer: snorkeling, scuba diving, hiking and trekking, and so much more. 

Despite the generic itinerary template arranged by our tour operator, nothing about our three-days-two-nights package was a basic experience.

GTGL Snippets: Coron, Palawan, Philippines

Conde Nast Traveler's Reader's Choice Award for Best Island in the World in 2015 went to Palawan, Philippines. How serendipitous was it that my family not only paid the Motherland a visit for the first time in five years, but also got to experience the majestic beauty of Coron, Palawan in the same year?
