We stayed there for 5 days during the holy week. Our flight was very early -- 5:00AM. I immediately passed out when we got to our hotel room :)
I took some photos in the plane as well. Of course, I chose the window seat -- I wouldn't miss it for anything.

Here's another one showing people carrying baskets filled with fruits and vegetables, one indication that the Philippine soil is perfect for vegetation.
|I wanted to pretend that this is heavy but, oh well...|
This one shows fishermen with their bountiful harvest. Davao and General Santos are popular for its tuna-rich waters :)

The next day, we went to Eden Nature Park and Resort. It's quite far from the city, since it's a mountain resort. Measuring about 80 hectares of land, it has a lot of fun-filled activities and facilities such as horseback riding, mountain trail, aviary, fishing village, playground, 3-on-3 basketball court, swimming pool, pinoy games, campsite & camphuts, souvenir shop, trading station, amphitheater, and flower garden, deer park, etc.etc!!! :). It even has it's own all-you-can-eat restaurant which serves fresh organic vegetables straight from their own garden.

|Again, the famous carabao.|
|Can't get enough :P|

Of course, a summer wouldn't be complete without the beach!

We were going home the next day so we didn't had the time to relax after the beach --- we went ahead to Jack's Ridge, another mountain resort but smaller and much nearer to the city. It's like some of the mountain resorts in Busay, Lahug. It has it's own restaurant and coffee shop. It was already night time when we got there so the lights overlooking the city were just spectacular!

Of course, no matter how beautiful the place you went to, there's still no place like home :)
