What should I pack when moving to Puerto Princesa City?

Answer this Question

We asked people living in Puerto Princesa City to list three things they wish they had brought and three they wish they had left behind. They responded...

"When moving to Puerto Princesa City, you should pack lightweight and breathable clothing due to the tropical climate. Include items such as shorts, t-shirts, and sundresses. Don't forget to pack a hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen to protect yourself from the sun. You should also pack a light rain jacket or umbrella, as the city experiences rainfall throughout the year. Comfortable walking shoes or sandals are essential, as you may do a lot of walking or hiking. If you plan on visiting the beaches, pack your swimsuit, beach towel, and snorkeling gear. For those planning to explore the underground river or other natural attractions, consider packing insect repellent and a reusable water bottle. Pack all necessary toiletries, but keep in mind that most items can be purchased locally. Don't forget to bring any prescription medications you need, along with a copy of your prescription. Bring a power adapter for your electronics, as the Philippines uses a different plug type than many other countries. Lastly, pack copies of important documents such as your passport, visa, and travel insurance. It's also a good idea to have a small amount of local currency for immediate expenses upon arrival," mentioned another expat when asked about moving to Puerto Princesa City, Philippines.
