Palasia Hotel Palau
Travel Blogs from Koror
On the last day of my 1 week stay in Palau (for work) I booked on a day outing around the islands of Palau.
Unfortunately some of the the best highlights of the outing are not captured as photo's due to the risk of loss of the camera or "drowning it.
These include -
- Snorkeling along some coral reefs
- Swimming in …
... up and down hike we donned the snorkel gear and started swimming out to the middle of the lake. Initial single-sighting encounters were underwhelming but as we approached the area of the lake in full sun more and more of these space-alien-like creatures appeared all around us. At times it seemed as though there were more jellyfish than lake water surrounding us. Some were the size of soccer balls diminishing in bulk to the babies who were the size of tadpoles.

I ask her why she wants to see it and she says to me, "It is for immigration so you won’t stay in the Philippines. They will want to see it when you get there."

TravelPod Member ReviewsPalasia Hotel Palau Koror
The Palasia was a reasonably small hotel by international standards, but one that is reasonably new on the main island at Palau. Rooms were not large, but were comfortable. They were all located off a central light shaft. The restaurant served good meals, but the decor could have been better.
