Background photo from Korea News Online. Text is Edited by The Everywhereist.

I am very excited for this trip knowing that I could visit my Ultimate Dream Destination in the Philippines, PALAWAN.Β We all know that traveling to Palawan is not as cheap as we wanted it to be. So I decided to take on a 7k Budget challenge for our Palawan trip. We booked a flight for Puerto Princesa 5 Months before the travel date so we have enough time to save. πŸ˜€

In order to save, we decided to D.I.Y. our trip and take on the 7k Palwan Budget Challenge for Two Persons.

MECHANICS OF THE CHALLENGE:

1. The Airline ticket is not included in the 7K budget challenge.

2. All activities (Ex: Island Hopping, Underground River) that we will be doing in Palawan Island is included in the 7K Challenge.

3. Food, Accommodation & Transportation is included in the 7K Challenge.

4. Look for the cheapest possible Accommodation, Food, Island Activities, Transportation in El Nido and Puerto Princesa.

5. D.I.Y. our Activites so we can save money.

6. List down all our Expenses during the trip.

7. UPDATE this Blog post after the trip.

    We did that last year. πŸ™‚ It wasn’t exactly P7k but it was around the amount (we didn’t note down every expense). We toured only El Nido since I think 4-5 days is too short to include PPS, but still doable. Hope you succeed!
