DAVAO + GENERAL SANTOS + LAKE SEBU + GLAN

It's a long-awaited trip and have been planning it for the longest time and we finally got to visit Tetet's hometown! We went to Davao first, then traveled by bus for about 4 hours to get to General Santos and then Van to Polomolok, South Cotabato.

Everything was just perfect! The air felt so clean and fresh. We arrived around 7:00 PM and as soon as I got out of the VAN, I suddenly felt the cold air rushing through me. Wow, it's like Baguio minus the smell of the pine trees!

Do enjoy my pics as we toured around SocSkSarGen and thank you so much to Tetet and her family's hospitality. It was such a great experience!

Mt Matutum I believe is an non active volcano





The next day, we went to the 7 falls of Lake Sebu and it has the most magnificent view! It's a series of cascading waterfalls one after the other. I think it is the main tourist spot of Lake Sebu. It's the place one shouldn’t miss. I didn't ride the Zipline though, it was just too high and too long and I didn't feel like it. But it would have been nice to see the aerial view of the 7 falls. Damn! Seeing the photos that I found from other blogs make me want to go back and ride the ZipLine, haha! But I am so thankful to have the opportunity to visit the  place. It has the most breath taking view!



 





We then went to Punta Isla Lake Resort where we ate our lunch! Everyone ate a big meal, I specially love the Chicharon Tilapia and the one wrapped in cabbage with a curry paste. I would love to go back and savor them again.

Sarangani's Provincial Capitol
sayang, PACMAN was not there at the time





The next day we went to the beach! We went to Isla Jardin del mar, a white sand beach, they said it was once a secluded cove along the shorelines of Glan, Gumasa. It is a very relaxing and romantice place, specially during sunset. It ts the perfect place to watch the sun go down the Celebes sea horizon.

 




While uploading the pics on FB, I started to browse through my list of places to visit, and noticed Glan's famous beach is one of it. I am glad I have one place crossed out.. Yey!
