How to Go To Bukidnon Faster From General Santos City

We recently traveled to Maramag, Bukidnon  for a school trip from STI College - General Santos City. Unlike our usual travel to Bukidnon via Davao, we traveled through Tacurong City.

On board on Toyata HiAce, we started cruising at 4 in the morning and had to stop only to pick up other teachers along the way.

With light baggage including solo briefcase  and snacks for in - between meals, we passed through National Highway of General Santos City then through Polomolok. We could pass drop by at Tupi on our way to Tacurong City for some fresh fruits or dried fruits. Good thing though that early morning made the highway  less traffic.

Reaching Tacurong City, we turned right to Mlang, then, straight to Kabacan where we stopped for our breakfast. The Kusina Kabacan is a renowned restaurant in Kabacan with sumptuous meals at way cheap rates.

From Kabacan, you can enjoy the sweet delicacies they have including their very sweet water melon at way budget prices! We headed next to Maramag, Bukidnon and dropped by at Central Mindano University for the renowned pasteurized buffalo milk and delicacies. However, a warning! If you are lactose intolerant, skip the milk as it would really make your tummy uneasy.

For our lunch, we headed straight to Valencia City. The freshly baked buko pie at their shopping mall is a delight.  We simply made use of Jollibee, Greenwich and Chowking for our option.

Heading to Malaybalay, the component city of Bukidnon is only an hour or less trip from Valencia City, another key city of Bukidnon.

We stayed over at RR Family Spring Resort  for a nice spring deep with their very amazing facilities at only 40.00 per person for daytime entrance.

So, the next time you wish to travel by private car, you can have a safe trip to Bukidnon but travel only daytime as other areas between Maramag and Tacurong City are of critical security. Further, you can travel too by bus using Rural Tours Transit of around 700.00 from Bulaong Terminal, General Santos City.

Enjoy Bukidnon of its cool weather, bounty fruits and eco - adventure escapades including their zipline and 2nd Philippine highest mountain, Mt Dulang - Dulang.
