When you think about summer destinations in the Philippines, there’s no denying that the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park (PPSRNP) is one of the destinations that come to mind. The UNESCO World Heritage site was reopened to local tourists last December 8, 2020, as part of their “Balik Turismo, Balik Trabaho'' campaign. Last year, only around 500 visitors were accepted daily, a third of the 1,500 headcounts before the pandemic. Walk-ins are also not allowed since the PPSRNP management will document and track the number of visitors.

January 2022 Update: PPSRNP now accepts domestic tourists and offers considerable discounts for guests to visit them. For more information, you may contact them through their Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/ppundergroundriver/, or email address, undergroundriver_ppsrnp@yahoo.com.
