1 Day, 3 Rivers

In the weekends, our family likes to explore. For a refreshing change from the usual beach trips, we went decided to spend a day at the Montible Bridge & River which is 30km down south from Puerto Princesa city. Armed with a full picnic basket, a griller and good company... all was set!

On the road to...
River #1: Montible River!
Our picnic set up under the bridge
Grilled Tuna and Ensalada


After lunch, we decided to get a little bit more adventurous and looked for 2 more rivers...in the sub-colonies of the Iwahig Penal Farm!

Public River #2
The in-mates hang around this river so I wouldn't recommend it for bikini-wearing women. The locals don't even wear swimwear so you can just bathe in shorts and a shirt...which is what I ended up doing!



Because we wanted a more private spot, we drove past the 2nd river and found out there was another hidden river in the property of one of the wardens. He was very friendly, toured us around and even gave us some produce to take home from his small vegetable farm.

Private River #3
There you have it...a 1 day in 3 rivers! How do you spend your family weekends? :)
