EXCITING NEWS! The paraw – now officially named the Balatik – will be open to bookings from this May. You can make reservations on the Tao Philippines Website.
Yesterday was the ritual “blessing” of the paraw. Tay Domingo, a Tagbanua shaman from Palawan’s west coast travelled to Puerto Princesa with his son to perform the blessing, called a Lambay.
The paraw is currently docked in Puerto Princesa and will soon be sailing to El Nido.
