As I am not allowed to be absent from work a long time, we had our vacation itinerary fully loaded. Our flight from Manila was scheduled last July 27 at 5:40 AM.

Due to being in a hurry, we forgot to change clothes and dress up for island and water adventure. With this, I guess we are the time first time tourist at the Underground River wearing jeans and rubber shoes :-)
From Puerto Princesa City proper, the land travel to Sabang Port was around 2 hours. The road was a mix of concrete and asphalt in some areas, with also parts with a lot of pot holes due to the previous rains. The journey to Sabang was a long winding road along the mountains and a typical countryside scenery with a few houses and establishments.
At around past 9AM, we arrived at the Sabang Port, where we paid Environmental Fee of 40 pesos each and rented a motorized bangka for 700 pesos (max of 6 passengers).

The boats going inside the underground river was not motorized, so we have to wait for our turn. While waiting we had time to took pictures at the tour loading bay.
