Palau: Road Trip!

I know I jumped right into talking about our trip to Siquijor before I even finished sharing the pictures from Palau, but I never claimed to be organized!

We couldn’t dive on our last day in Palau (since we were flying out that night), so four of us rented a car and decided to take a road trip around the main island, crossing 9 states in a few hours (they’re tiny tiny states!) with a few stops along the way.  The roads were surprisingly great (new pavement, no potholes!), and it was a lot of fun – I highly recommend it!

First stop was hiking down to waterfalls…

Yes, we had to hike this back up…

Yep, that’s me and Karl!

We made it to the very tip of the island!

A very very old coffin…

Yes, I totally forgot the name of these ruins…  They’re rumored to be about 2,000 years old.

They have a huge capitol building for such a small country!

Aside from our road trip, I have a few pictures taken with my iPhone that I haven’t shared yet. Like the view from our hotel room…

I would have eaten at Kramer’s everyday if they weren’t always closed (twice we went there with friends and they were closed – I guess they don’t open for lunch, nor do they open at all on Sundays.  Bummer.  But we did get to eat there twice!).

Karl enjoying some local Red Rooster brew (we bought some Red Rooster mugs as souvenirs too!).

Probably the best blackened sashimi I’ve ever had.  (Ignore the seeds from the calamansi, it didn’t come served like that, but I only thought of taking a picture after squeezing the juice on it, and eating a few pieces, ooops!)  The tuna was so fresh, you barely had to chew, it was like butter, amazing!  Their fish tacos were pretty good too!

Here’s hoping I can get back to Palau before we leave the Philippines!  And eat more of that amazing sashimi…

  1. I love your waterfall pics!

  2. Great article, great pictures! Palau is really awesome! I ve been in Palau in 2016 and had really a great time! The nature is amazing, diving is absolutely stunning and the people are friendly! Just the prices for hotels are quite expensive and you have to book early to get a good price for a decent room (http://palauvisitors.com/ would have helped me a lot find a good hotel). I’m definitely goind back to Palau soon!
