You have to be either lucky or rich or just a passionate traveler to reach the islands I explored in April 2017. And if you are wondering, I was lucky.
Why am I this self-proclaimed lucky? Well, my close friend wanted to celebrate his 40th birthday on a private island called Bamboo Private Islands in Coron, Philippines and so he booked the entire island for his group of 12 friends for 5 nights and 6 days.
I visited Boracay Island last year and I would suggest missing the Boracay for Palawan. Unless you are looking for parties over peace and paradise.
Everything built on this island was based on sustainable architecture and solar power energy. The owners themselves met us on our arrival and informed us their urge to preserve nature. So much so that you cannot throw used tissues in the toilet to avoid over flow of septic tank.
But, they provided us with minimal necessity, eco-friendly, closer to nature and clean and tidy rooms. We had very weak or almost no mobile service and the slowest WiFi network, which forced us to rather not check our phones every now and then. I won't lie though, I was really happy when I came home to my hot shower and full network 4G. Addicted to technology humans as we are!
