A short visit to the Puerto Princesa City Baywalk is part of our city tour itinerary. The development of the area may be still incomplete but it is a lovely place to stroll around. How I wish we could stay a bit longer here so that we could see more of it.
A stroll around in the Baywalk of Puerto Princesa would have been more ideal if it’s done early in the morning or just before sunset. We went there while the sun is high up. It would also be interesting to see it at night because of these beautifully designed lamp posts.
Our guide told us that the peacock is the symbol of Puerto Princesa City which is a part of the city’s official seal. You can see the image of the seal of Puerto Princesa in this page. The symbol was probably chosen because of the Palawan Peacock Pheasant which is an endangered specimen and is endemic to Palawan.
These colorful fish on display is a great spot to take group photos. I bet this looks more lovely in the evening.
In addition, you’ll see a splendid view of the bay which is great to take photos of during day time.
If you happen to be in Puerto Princesa City during the first week of April, do visit Baywalk for the Pangalipay sa Baybay.
