Palawan Island in the Philippines was a featured location on the Season 3 premiere of the HBO hit series, Westworld.
The cameo can be found in Westworld’s Season 3’s first episode: Parce Domine showing Bernard (Jeffrey Wright) talking to a Chinese fisherman looking for a friend. The fisherman asked him where he is going, and Bernard pulled out a map in his pocket and pointed out a place in what he referred to as the “Westworld”.
The scene took place in Rizal Municipal fish port in Palawan Island. The scene raises speculations that Delos Inc. that operates several themed parks including Westworld is located somewhere off the Island in the Philippine Sea.
The HBO produced hit television series is a science fiction Western and dystopian created by Lisa Joy and Jonathan Nolan. Season 3 premiered on March 19, 2020.
