Puerto Princesa, Philippines

See fireflies glowing among the mangroves by Iwahig River

If you want to get a good idea of how to spend an evening in Puerto Princesa in the most enchanting way, visit the Iwahig River for a truly magical night. As the sun sets, visitors will be taken on a small paddle boat down the river for a 40-minute tour inside the mangroves, in which fireflies rest. Your local guide may start the tour with an introduction about the mangrove forest, explain how fireflies are attracted to mangrove trees, and even tell you about constellations if you travel on a clear full-moon day. During this time, if you are fortunate enough, you can see thousands of fireflies lighting the mangroves and illuminating the river with their fascinating little lights, like a fairy performance from nature for everyone to enjoy. All-in-all a wonderful experience and a must-see tour in Palawan.
