  • Although I'm wary of iconic attractions because of the swarms of tourists that one has to deal with, this place is more than worth the hassle! It's an amazing experience that I don't blame anyone for not wanting to miss. Our guide told us that the park accommodates 300 to 1200 tourists daily, and yes, it was crowded, but everyone seemed to be pretty respectful. The boat ride from Sabang to the national park landing beach is beautiful, then a short walk through jungle to the cave entrance (apparently the monkeys steal things, so look out). You enter the cave in a sort of canoe, with about twelve people per boat. The guide rows you through expertly, shining his light at various points of interest, but it'd be smart to bring your own flashlight too. Tour ends in a large circular chamber with 65 metre ceiling, and you head back -- about 45 minutes total inside the cave. A bit confusing to figure out exactly what titles the place holds. It's definitely a UNESCO site, but the "Wonder of the World" comment can be deceiving. From what I can find, seems like it's not on the "official" Seven Natural Wonders list, but on the "New Seven Wonders of Nature" or something like that, which I believe is compiled by popular vote. Whatever the case, it's natural, and it's definitely a wonder! Couple tips for photographers: As others mentioned, it's dark in there (of course) so be prepared for that. Jack your ISO and bring a bright flashlight, if you like, but expect to get your best shots right when entering and exiting the cave. And watch out for water drops falling from the ceiling!

  • Well this place actually deserve among the list of 7 wonders of the world. The underground river in Palawan..So amazing & beautiful so natural creation of God.. Unforgettable experience.. cool water, cool climate..wow. a awesome place to watch out with family and friends. Feeling like visiting here many times..

  • It's very interesting and it's one of the 7 natural wonders of the world. I suggest that you book with an agency since they will take care of the permit, transport, and tour. It takes about 1 and a half hours from Puerto Princesa to Sabang. Then you will have to wait in line for a boat (also taken care of by agency as you need to get a boat #) to take you to the site. Once there, you will be given an audio guide and a hard hat. You get on another boat with a local guide who will paddle you to the underground river. Bring a powerful flashlight if you have one or you will have to depend on the guide. He will show you the various formation shapes found inside the cave. Lots of hanging bats. The ride in and back out takes about 40 minutes. You should visit this place if you're in Palawan.

  • UNESCO world heritage site, one of the modern seven wonders of the world. If I went here again I would take the longer tour. River trip very good, saw macaques and a really big monitor lizard while waiting for our boat

  • The typhoon can't stop me exploring this Wonder. Definitely would give it another try. Best to visit on a summer time in the Philippines.
