Join Gina Lopez as she travels to Palawan and shares some of its ‘Best Kept Secrets,’ little-known places that are testament to its glorious beauty, unique in all the world. Go back in time as you meet the Palaw’an indigenous tribes, believed to have traveled via land bridges from Asia Mainland to be the first settlers of the Philippines. Connect with them and understand that they are bridges to our past and our collective humanity.
Marvel at how Palawan became a marine and wildlife sanctuary and the seat of eco-tourism and sustainable livelihood. Meet other local heroes who, united with Gina Lopez’s mindset in her singularity of purpose, continue this crusade because of their affinity to Mother Earth and her people, including the renowned Dr. Gerry Ortega who died defending the environmental cause.
Visit Ugong Rock and the Hundred Caves and witness a thriving community, rehabilitated from illegal livelihoods such as logging and mining, now transformed into sustainable havens of ecotourism.
This show not only showcases great destinations but also loving and caring people, who make the Palawan the number one island destination in the world. This show features the narration of Ms. Charo Santos-Concio.
