For two consecutive years, Palawan was crowned by a travel magazine Travel + Leisure as the Best Island in the world. Turquoise waters, limestone caves, underground river and breathtaking view of marine life are reasons why it garnered a total score of 93.15. As one reader said, “It’s the single most beautiful place on earth”.
Palawan shines among other famous places such as Greece’s Santorini that lands on top 5, Maui in Hawaii that lands on number 6 and Indonesia’s Bali that lands on top 10. In addition, Philippine’s famous white-sand beach Boracay made it to top 3 with a score of 89.67.
It is the third time that Palawan was hailed as the best island in the world. It got its first win last 2013.
