Said to be one of Puerto Princesa’s busiest neighborhood in the 50’s and 60’s, engaged in various business activities, such as fishing villages, rural banks,public market, port area gasoline stations, and many privately owned retail stores. Some of the big businesses has remained despite the expansion of the business district to the north.
The change in urban setting led to less traffic congestion, less noise and less pollution. The memory of the past linger when you watch the sunrise in the baywalk while you go jogging at dawn, and the beautiful sunset in pristine beach. In this neighborhood, you would also find the” old rich” houses,simple and functional, some still standing up to the present.
The area is amongst the few remaining neighborhood in Puerto Princesa that continue to possess its traditional quaint character of local cafes, independent bakeries, family run restaurants and stores, There is a certain touch of nostalgia when one stays in Lola itang bed and breakfast, recalling the era of a once buzzling commerce, well participated by Chinese and Filipino businessmen, who know each other so well and treat each other like family. Now is the time to experience the heritage while it is still there.
Come to Lola Itangs bed and breakfast and experience the blast from the past!
