Do you want to understand what makes Palawan up? This is the place to go. The tribes, the people, the culture and a whole lot more. And the cool hologram intro makes it worth every penny you paid for. This is better than Palawan museum. It's not offered in most city tours because the entrance fee is at 100 pesos for Filipino residents and even more expensive if you're foreign. But with the presentation itself plus the audio visual presentation will make you appreciate Palawan as it is today.
