Off to El Nido

Today mark our last day in Coron as we will be moving to El-Nido by ferry on the afternoon. Jen and company help us do the transportation arrangment to the port, as well as give us a warm goodbye from the whole family! You won't get luxury stay here at Coron NVC vacation home, but you will definitely experience a home away from home here.

The ferry journey took 4 hours to reach El Nido, but it was not boring at all. Just few steps away from my seats is the door to the rear of the boat, which many or the passengers choose to wandering around instead of staying inside. I can simply understand why as the combination of deep blue sea, blue sky, and beautiful islands is just irresitible. I end up spend more than half of the journey here as well.

We do have some chance to go and stay around the cockpit, when i am actually wanted to buy some drinks and coffee. While they preparing the drinks, they invite us to went up to have a sit and have a look toward the sea from the pilot perspective.

We finally reach El Nido, and immediately attracted to the limestones rock formation that surrounding the small city. The streets here are very narrow, and compare to Coron, this place serve better as a tourism spot, as there are a lot of tour shop along these roads. We took two tricycle to fetch us over to our stays for next two days, Swiftlet Inn.

After done the check in, we decided to have a walk across the main street of El Nido and find a good place for dinner. Carol lead the way directly to the beach and bring us to Sea Jane Resto Bar for seafood BBQ as dinner. You get to choose the seafood that you like and the workers will help to prepare it. The seating are directly on the beach, and it was very enjoyable to have the dinner while seeing the view turn from day to night.

We have some slight walk around the small town of El Nido after the dinner before heading back for some rest.
