I Love General Santos City

Fly to GenSan now! I really enjoyed and experienced the beauty, people and foods as well  and is a quiet yet developing city in Mindanao. This place was the modern touch that made us fall in love. I thought General Santos City was to be as boring as some of the other cities i’ve visited, but i discovered how wrong I was. I probably visit this place again and try other activities to offer. The best time to travel General Santos City is during their Tuna Festival Celebration from August to September. The festival highlight includes: Fishtahan sa Fishport, Tuna Float Parade, Tuna Float Display, Tuna Congress, Tuna Village. This activities is started during thier grand opening during their FunFare and FunEast. Maybe next year I can booked and go to GenSan for this activities. Happy Trip!

Roaming Around SM City Gensan

As part of my itinerary trip, I included the SM City General Santos for my last place to visit, unwind and shopping as well and buy souviner items like keychain and I love GenSan shirt. From lions beach resort I immediately went to SM Gensan at around 4:00pm. Then from there I took some photos at the back of the mall where you can find a very unique interior design of the mall. This mall is the 44th branch of SM Supermalls and the third biggest mall in Mindanao. There are a lot of restaurant, coffee shops, electronic appliance shops and clothing accesories. They have also a wide parking space for all customers and visitors. I like the fountain at the back of the mall, the wall is painted with a colored green apple and a blue highlight. The mall has a high ceiling and has five floor.

Lions Beach Resort in General Santos City

From General Santos City Fish Port, I took a motorcycle (habal-habal) about 15-20 minutes depending on traffic mode. I think this area need for rehabilitation and beautification. Located just at the downtown area, the park is pretty accessible for beach bums everywhere. This area is open for public and known to be the Queen Tuna Park of GenSan,close to their public market and attracts a lot of locals  and travelers who like to enjoy the waves to do their surfing and water ski-adventure.  Note: the tricycles and jeepneys are available on your way out to the city and this cost you about P10-15 pesos per passenger.

Queen Tuna Park in General Santos City

This esplanade or mini park in downtown of General Santos is serve as a baywalk boulevard in the city which is located at Barangay Dadiangas South, General Santos City. As you enter the gate park you'll see this two giant tuna ark which is known this city to be the " Tuna Capital of the Philippines ". There are a lot of establishments around the area like public market, restaurants, malls and some resorts. The place is quite and relaxing. You can see nothing but the beach within this area. But maybe it needs to have some improvement and investment to make this place more enjoyable to other visitors. For those who want to visit this place the park is usually open for the public from 5:00am to 10:00pm only. Inside the park the following are to be observed: no bathing of pets, no selling, bringing, drinking alcoholic beverage, no gambling, no smoking and cooking should be done at designated areas. Cleanliness is a must. The used of the cottages is free.
