After 2 days of standard packaged tours (Coron Island and nearby beaches), time for some DIY. Both Calauit and dugong tours are expensive standalone tours available from Coron. With some help from my awesome guesthouse, I was able to check out these 2 attractions without a tour for a fraction of the usual price. Here’s how I did it!
After a fun-filled day with lots of snorkeling on the Super Ultimate Tour, I thought it was time to take a break from snorkeling and enjoy more of the beaches Coron had to offer. And so I booked the Island Escapade Tour on my second full day in Coron, Palawan.
Wanting to try something new and with not much time to plan, I found myself alone in Coron, in the Filipino province of Palawan in July. I had almost a week in Coron but never knowing what would come in the following days, I took up the most comprehensive of the tours on the first day, the Super Ultimate Tour. Turned out to be the perfect introduction to Coron, Palawan, and as luck would have it, the only day of
Hobart, the capital of Tasmania. Wasn’t expecting much from this little city but turned out to be a little lively and colorful, with plenty of possible day trips nearby. Here’s how I spent 3 days in Hobart after a week on the Overland Track.
One of the highlights of Hobart, and an art museum unlike any other. Some love it. Others hate it. Provocative, dizzying at times, but mostly in your face. Only one way to find out if MONA’s your thing.
Came to see Tasmanian Devils, but ended learning so much more. Part conservation, part education social enterprise.
A Bruny Island day tour itinerary from Hobart, Tasmania. Beautiful coastlines, forests, and delicious local produce.
A little city in Tasmania that I nearly passed up upon, and only by chance that I ended up discovering a little bit of this charming city. Many old buildings, few people, and one beautiful gorge.
A compilation of information I had found regarding completing the Overland Track, as well as nuggets from my experience on the trail in May 2019. If you’re considering the Overland Track or have decided to do it, hope this comes in useful!
The second half of my Overland Track adventure in May 2019. Way better weather than the first half, and we were finally able to experience the stunning Tasmanian wilderness in its full glory.
