How to get to Durian Garden Atbp in Polomolok South Cotabato

Going to Durian Garden Atbp in Polomolok South Cotabato from General Santos City: At Gaisano City GenSan take a van bound to Polomolok via National Highway. Travel time is about 30-40 minutes depending on traffic hour. One way fare going to Polomolok in South Cotabato is about P25.00 per passenger. You'll see sign board as you enter the mall terminal. Then you'll passing Polomolok town proper and city plaza. From there take a bus bound to Koronadal City, bus fare is P25.00 but if you want accesible transportation take a special tricyle trip rate for P100.00 pesos per way! Ang mahal! So I prefer to take bus instead of tricycle and then on the way to another town named Tupi you will immediately see the logo of a big Durian Graden Atbp signage. Located at National Highway, Barangay Sulit, Municipality of Polomolok, South Cotabato. For other inquires contact them at this numbers:

My South Cotabato Experience

It was a cloudy weather at Polomolok in South Cotabato. I take a van bound to Polomolok from Gaisano GenSan at around 1:00pm. Fare is about P25.00 per passenger and 30-40 minutes travel time. I don't have any idea about this place in the Mindanao, I will be enjoy this trip.  Yes, there are places in Mindanao that are quite dangerous, but the majority of the people here is friendly and accommodating. Polomolok public plaza is so clean and has a wide playground field which the government used this area for some of their activities like concerts, fiesta, public gatherings, sports events and many more. In the picture below you can find this volcano shaped-fountain at the center of the plaza. During the night this fountain will give you a scenic view of colorful light and fountain display.
