Palaui Island : Teaser

I compiled and put into one my random videos from our weekend getaway in Palaui Island, Sta. Ana, Cagayan Valley last June 10-12, 2011. Even if it took a long hours of land and sea travel, I still had so much fun together with Angel, Gael, Ed and Jerome. To lakwatsero and the pinay solobackpacker, thank you so much for making us part of this incomparable trip of yours. I know how much this “come-back” trip means to both you.

I do not have much idea where Palaui is (not until I was asked to join the trip and google about it) but according to, Palaui Island, with a latitude of 18.55 (18° 32′ 54 N) and a longitude of 122.14 (122° 8′ 12 E), is a hypsographic (island) located in the area / state of Cagayan in Philippines that is a part of Asia.

The location is situated 617 kilometers north (1°) of the approximate center of Philippines and 455 kilometers north (16°) of the captial Manila.

A 10 square kilometer area around Palaui Island has an aproximate population of 3269 (0.000033 persons per square meter) and an average elevation of 11 meters above sea levels.
