After realizing that our mission to go to the southernmost municipal of Palawan in the port of Rio Tuba, Bataraza has failed, we rode a tricycle back to the terminal of RORO Bus (20 Pesos/person, 15 minutes) and rode a bus going to Brooke’s Point (132 Pesos/person, 1.5 hours) to spend the night and start early to go around.
We woke up at our lodging in Brooke’s Point around 6AM to prepare for the whole day of adventure.
Before we left the lodging, Dong Ho and I had a small discussion whether to leave our things and go back to get them when we had finished the tour. We decided that we will be bringing our bags as we go around because we do not have a fixed itinerary. A chance to visit an awesome place a bit far from the lodge may occur and it would be a bummer to say no to it due to our stuff.
Ate at the eatery/karinderya at RORO Bus station and asked around on how we could visit the tourist spots of Brooke’s Point. Luckily, we found a tricycle driver and he said that the standard rate for touring around Brooke’s Point in a tricycle was 80 Pesos/hour. Not bad compared to some I’ve seen.
Without further ado, here are the places and things that happened to us while we were touring Brooke’s Point.
