    Is the Coconut Palace open for public tour?

    Just wonder whether the Coconut Palace is open for public tour. I sent a few email to book to public tour but there has been no reply. There is no announcement from the OVP website.

Additional Information

Introduction

Visit the Coconut Palace to see one of the most elaborate government-owned buildings in the Philippines, now home to the country's vice president. First Lady Imelda Marcos had the Coconut Palace built for Pope John Paul II's visit in 1981, although he ultimately declined to stay there because he did not want to stay in a sumptuous suite amidst the poverty of the Philippines. The Palace is partially made of coconut shells and coconut lumber as a testament to the amazing versatility of the coconut. Make the most of your visit to the Philippines by touring one of the country's quirkiest and most interesting destinations.
