Puerto Princesa Budget

I travel with enough money to eat, commute and buy pasalubong. I don't sleep in a sosy hotel. I travel with a backpack, easy to carry pag may hinahabol na flights. In short, I'm a backpacker and budget traveller.

Before I travel, I see to it na meron akong na-prepare na estimated budget for the trip. I google where to stay and eat, affordably and comfortably. Yung pasok sa budget ko. Sabe nga nila, the more the merrier but when it comes to travelling, the more travel buddies you have, the budget is smaller. But what if you have only three friends who are game, what will you do? So much better if you list what's in or out of the budget.

I want to share with you my expenses I've had in Puerto Princesa.

I roughly spent 8k for this trip. Not bad at all. I was able to go to explore PPS for 4 days already, with that amount of money.

I am more of DIY trip than availing tour packages. Feeling ko kase mas makakatipid ako and mas gusto ko yung nagbabasa sa forums(GirlTalk where I learnt abt La Tiara). But in this trip, I availed La Tiara's tour package but i was the one who looked for our accomodation. And its a must to have a travel agency in PPS kasi like in Underground river, need pa kasi ng mga permits and everything. Hassle naman kung kami pa yung magasikaso nun.

I recommend La Tiara Tours. Very accomodating and mabait. Lahat na ata ng tanong, natanong ko na sakanya. And yung mga tourguides and driver nila, sobrang bait! So better get their service if you go to PPS. :)

SkyBox Sports Bar and Grille

This is where we had dinner during our third day in Puerto Princesa.

Skybox is located in Mercado de San Miguel. Just near Tiangge Tiangge and Island Souvenirs. If you're not in the mood to eat seafood, gora ka na dito. They serve American food, from fries to burgers, pastas, burritos, steaks, etc. It has a bar outside if you want to chill. This is a perfect place to hang out and drink beer!

Bar inside
2nd floor.

Since we got back from Honda Bay, we wanted to eat heavy meal to replenish our energy.


And their bestseller, BURGERS!


Classic Cheeseburger
B and E burger
Bacon and mushroom melt

I personally love burgers that's why tinikman ko lahat. I ordered Ranchero and honestly, mas masarap to! The combination of sweet and spicy bbq sauce, sarap! But of course, masarap lahat! You can choose from Junior, Classic, Double and Monster size. All except the classic burger are junior sizes but its big enough already. What a hefty servings!
So you better try and eat in Skybox. Affordable and big servings = Perfect Combi. :)
 Au revoir! :)
