Their charming garden has also become a favorite hangout place, offering a great spot for stopovers during the city tour. The garden features a playground for kids, an aviary with peacocks, and a deck with an amazing view of Honda Bay and its islands. Next to the garden is a restaurant, which serves well-prepared, yummy Filipino dishes at affordable prices. The park is best visited in the evening when night lights transform the whole place into a romantic garden.
Near Binuatan Creations, this Go Kart Circuit is a fun place to test your driving skills with a speedy and swervy kind of thrill. Opened in 2015, it features a 1.3 km race track and 15 turns that run in a clockwise direction. All these in the fresh, clean air of Puerto Princesa, with pleasant views of greenery and mountains. Guests can try out 5 laps for P250, or 10 laps for P500, on the fun kart. They can also opt for the sleeker and faster racing karts which can run up to 20 laps for P1,500. Trying out any of the karts requires wearing closed shoes. Palawan International Circuit hosts two main events annually. These are the Petron Rok Grand Prix, a karting competition held every May or April, and the Underbone Scooter Racing, a scooter competition held every third quarter of the year.
This spacious ranch holds a sweeping view of Honda Bay and its islands such as Cowrie, Pandan, and Bat Island.

They can get on the back of a work horse and tour the site for P100/head. Those who want more action can whiz through a 760 m zipline for P500, and walk down a 200 m hanging bridge for P250.
