Palawan, a bucket-list destination for overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) on a holiday with loved ones, is again on the top list of must-see vacation spots around the world, having been voted second by the New York-based international magazine, Travel + Leisure.

The magazine, which counts other award-winning travel media outfits, Conde Nast and National Geographic among its competitors, based its list of 15 best island destination through its website’s reader’s picks.

Also considered when being voted on in the World’s Best Awards 2019 were “activities and sights, natural attractions and beaches, food, friendliness, and overall value.”

Palawan, described as “perennially popular,” was second to Sri Lanka.

The unspoiled Palawan, with its hidden beaches, dive spots, an underground river and unspoiled beauty, has consistently been topping Travel + Leisure’s list.

It was on the sixth spot last year; and was as well top ranked in 2017 and 2016.

Palawan News, in a report, said the tourist destination got a score of 90.87 percent, an improvement from its sixth spot ranking last year when it got 90.04.

“The Philippine islands of Cebu, Palawan, and Boracay are longtime favorites, thanks to the top-notch reef and wreck diving, white-sand beaches, hiking trails with waterfalls and welcoming locals. Five-star lodgings with water views and doting service abound, from the Shangri-La Boracay Resort & Spa to El Nido’s four eco-friendly, waterfront Palawan properties,” Palawan News quoted Travel + Leisure as saying.
