In today’s modern times, sharing information and experiences is as easy as 123. The thing is we can link ourselves to other people all over the globe with just a click of a button. Selfies on the other hand is one occurrence that immensely took over the online world by storm. 90% of today’s population had taken their selfies and had them posted on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and other Social Medias for other individuals to see.

When we talk about selfies or sharing photos online, we’re basically putting ourselves out there for public consumption and for most times, this experience is gratifying! But of course, this undertaking is grounded on the notion of affirmation. An affirmation of identity, presence or an avatar of yourself on a given moment, shared to the whole wide world with a self-governing statement saying “I’m here” while instinctively thinking for our followers to hit that like button and hope it goes viral.

As much as we would like to think that the selfie game would be a disappearing act in time, the truth is, it’s far from being a trend that will be drowning down the drain anytime soon. With the pace that’s taken by social media mania, it can be said that Selfie games are far from being departed.

And since they are definitely here to stay why not make this a good platform to spread the wonderful sights our eyes have landed on. Turning our table to the island dubbed as the Last Frontier of the Philippines, Palawan is a celebrated spot for travel selfies. I mean, who wouldn’t want to snap an incredible photo shot behind an amazing rock formation as a backdrop? Or perhaps snapping selfies submerged underwater with its stunning underwater artistry?

One can’t even depict the true beauty of Palawan. You couldn’t even imagine the countless fun things you can do in this island paradise. Luscious forests, heavenly shaped cliffs and mountains, World War 2 Japanese shipwrecks, scuba diving, wind surfing, underground cave and rivers, a touch of safari with all the African animals, snorkeling and coral watching and trekking. These are just few of the many exciting activities you can do in Palawan.

Surely you can’t miss the once in a lifetime moment to walk on the prestigious shores of Palawan and you have those countless selfies captured in your camera roll to document and share such astounding travel experience!
