JAZA captivated by the beauty of Palawan
The island of Palawan seemed to have captured the heart of the Ayala Corporation chairman and CEO.
Jaime Augusto Zobel de Ayala is in love with the beautiful island of Palawan.
Couldnt get enough of Palawan, he even changed the cover photo on his Fb account and posted a lengthy quote from a UK Telegraph article expounding on the beauty of the island.
“If the island were a woman, she would be obliviously beguiling, unaware of her own charms. Still, the rest of the world is taking notice. Year on year, it’s been voted the best island on Earth by top travel publications and has been chosen as the backdrop to Hollywood films including The World is Not Enough and The Bourne Legacy. No wonder: there are powder-white beaches, blue skies and sea and fascinatingly diverse marine life. It has all the hallmarks of a paradise – but, arguably, so do the Maldives, Seychelles and Mauritius. So what makes Palawan different from other identikit tropical idylls? It’s paradise with personality. Yes, it ticks all the classic desert-island boxes. But it has splashes of local colour too: folklore, such as shape-shifting monsters and “white ladies” woven into the fabric of history, the excitement and chaos of 5am simbang gabi (night mass) leading up to Christmas, and chickens and pigs going about their own business on the island,” said the post.
Palawan, you’re the lucky one for JAZA! #
