How To Go To General Santos City

General Santos City is one young urbanized city in the South. And, who won't miss this beautiful city if you are lucky to bump to the city's home - grown champions from Manny Pacquiao, Shamcey Supsop to young talents, Showtime's XB Gensan and Youtube Random Girl Zendee.

But, how do you get to this lovely city? Depending on your place, you can travel by land, air or sea. If you shall be coming from Manila, the most convenient is by air through AirPhil and CebuPac.

If  you shall be coming from Mindanao, you can travel by bus through Davao City or Tacurong City where Yellow Bus or Holiday Bus hailed from Davao City or a Rural  Transit from Cagayan de Oro. A fare of around PHP 250.00 is ticketed on one - way route from Davao and around 700.00 from CDO.

Once you get to the GenSan's international airport, if your hotel doesn't provide free shuttle, you can hail a taxi (which is a flat rate of 300 - 400 depending on your destination) or for a backpacker, a multi - cab can be shared with other passengers at 50.00 each. You can move around GenSan using a trike at 8.00 - 10.00 fare.

One affordable accommodation is the Dolores Hotel situated next to the Public Market and is 1 tryke away to 4 major malls.

Should you like to check the white - pristene beaches of Glan, or go zipline in Conel, you can ask assistance through the city's tourism. For Glan resort, you can direct yourself to KCC Mall's  Terminal for van for hires to Glan. Around 100.00 is the individual fare. About 1 hour trip, you can practically enjoy the scenic trip to Glan and enjoy the long strips of beaches.

For zipline, You can check out Fifth Mountain's B'lakayo Facebook page, so, you can communicate with the zipline's owner or personnel and if travelling with a group, they can somehow arrange a vehicle for you.

There is also water tubing, trekking, diving, museum in Upper part of Sarangani and a trip through the vans for hire near Bulaong Terminal can transport you to various locations.

Should you need help, the city police and locals are very helpful. And while you are in GenSan, never miss the city's specialty of tuna, tilapia and other seafood at way cheap rates. So, have fun!
