We paid only Php1,500 (for the van with driver) for a half day tour of Puerto Princesa. Since our group had around 10 members, it only cost Php150 per person. The tour was already inclusive of the ffg places:
1. Palawan Butterfly Ecological Garden and Tribal Village
2. Iwahig Penal Colony and Farm
3. Crocodile Farm & Nature Park
4. Mitra's Ranch
5. Baker's Hill
6. Immaculate Concepcion Cathedral
7. Plaza Cuartel
8. The Baywalk
The Baker's Hill is one of my favorite tourist places in Puerto Princesa principally because of the many picturesque spots found within its park. The delicacies sold in the bakeshop are also widely known, and tourists usually go by this place to purchase pasalubong for their relatives and friends.
They say that this is the owner's house but I'm not really sure if this is actually their residential house or a vacation house, or if this is just intermittently used in the course of managing their business.
Baker's Hill started as a bakeshop but the owners eventually constructed a theme park and now, they're gradually expanding their aviary.
There are many gardening designs and stylish landscapes that horticulturists, garden landscapers and designers can get ideas from.
Here is the bigger-than-life-sized LOVE word! For those who are too shy to express it, just drag any dense guy/girl here, and if he/she still couldn't get it, i don't know what will. On 2nd thought, you can always say it to his/her face, with this spot providing the romantic ambience.

The highlight of the aviary is the peacock, of course. They also have other species of birds such as the Philippine owl, golden pheasant, etc.
We really enjoyed touring the place and after all those poses for our "photo session", we ended up buying refreshments and some snacks from a number of stalls. For those who have more time and budget, there is also a restaurant in the place.
