A few days ago, I just discovered about the Go Karting Palawan International Circuit experience. Funny to discover it just now when it has been more than 9 months I’ve been staying in Puerto Princesa. Every time I go to Baker’s Hill to buy some goodies, I always passed by this big sign of Palawan International Circuit.
No idea what it was until fortunately, I was with an adrenaline junkie buddy who is into extreme sports. We went inside and asked the staff if these are only for professionals or also good for beginners. When the staff confirmed that visitors are welcome, the next day we returned to experience it.

The Experience – Go Karting Palawan International Circuit
Hoping that the weather is fine and won’t rain. July is a rainy season but I kept on praying to have a sunny day. Because I need to experience this before this adrenaline junkie buddy flies somewhere else. Went to the office and paid PHP 250 each person for the fun kart good for 4 laps. Check this track directory.
That was my first time to drive a kart but I have to be grateful for my driving skills, thanks to bump cars. Anyway, no worries. Fun kart is easy to drive.
Later on, it started to rain so good thing no expensive valuable in my body. But that’s when I brought my waterproof camera to take some photos and videos under the rain. I am not really into Vlogging so I just had a few footages in my camera.
It got more exciting in the rain and I just let myself enjoy it. Unfortunately, I didn’t bring extra clothes with me. I enjoyed the speed of driving in the rain although I was left behind already. No worries, just enjoy the ride.
Ended the race soaking wet with a smile but I felt so dirty because I ran on a puddle so warm and muddy water was on my face, clothes, and body. Went to the toilet and washed me and my clothes with clean water. Let me dry naturally. Good thing, the buddy brought a towel.
