    Monastery Of The Transfiguration A Place For Reflection In Bukidnon

    Situated on a hill in the village of San Jose away from the noisy crowd is a place where one can find refuge and seek peace.

    Bukidnon The Second Time Around

    Let's admit it. Your money during a trip is mainly spent in accommodation.

    Last June, I went on a short trip to Manolo Fortich, Bukidnon and I stayed with my friend who happens to live there. And just last July 29-31 I went back to Bukidnon and stayed in Malaybalay City with another friend who also lives there. The thing about staying in your friend's house during the trip is free accommodation and free food! HAHAHA.

    We left Iligan on July 29, 1PM. And we arrived in Malaybalay at 7:30PM. Yes! The trip is tiresome and a pain in the ass. Hahaha. Usually Iligan to Bukidnon will take you 4 h ...

    Travel Guide Top Things To Do In Bukidnon Province

    Bukidnon is known as both the watershed of Mindanao (six major rivers run through it) and the food basket of Mindanao (major rice and corn producer).

    Bukidnon A Dream Destination Without A Beach

    Despite having no beach, Bukidnon has a long list of destinations that can make your trip of the best travels you've had in the Philippines.

    I was told of Camp Phillips and pineapples picked along the highway, and the talk-of-the-town adventures in Dahilayan. I was told of a local movie starring Sam Milby and KC Concepcion filmed in Manolo Fortich, and another movie of Piolo Pascual and Angel Locsin shot in the picturesque Impasugong.

    Ask a friend what to see in Bukidnon and, more or less, you'll be told the same. But, to truly experience the best of the province, one has to get out of t ...
