The provincial government here gifted this fish festival town with more than P100 million worth of infrastructure and community social services to enhance its enduring festival activities.
"It's even conservative for now, but for your efforts, the provincial government is allocating it to your town," said Gov. Steve Chiongbian, who witnessed the culminating activities of the 10th Bangsi Festival, the local name of the flying fish that abound the Sarangani Bay.
He did not specify the projects yet to which the funds were intended but he said additional funds as much as P50,000 were already ...
Hooray for my first water tubing adventure!
Last June 2016, my friends and I explored the administrative region of SOCCSKSARGEN in Mindanao. We were supposed to visit Lake Holon as part of our itinerary but it was raining hard all around the region so we decided not to push through the overnight hike. Having one free day, we searched for other activities we could do or places we could visit. And this is how we end up in the town of Maitum, Sarangani for some wet and wild fun!
How to get there
After checking out from our hotel in General Santos City, our group hired a tricycle that too ...
What really makes me go to Sarangani is the White Water Tubing. Sarangani was made famous by Manny Pacquiao but this province is more than just about him, there are plenty of places to explore and adventures to try. And White Water Tubing is one of them, it is similar to white water rafting but instead of a raft you'll be sitting on a tube solo while traversing the river. Not that really solo since you'll be accompanied by a guide on your back.
How to get there? From Amigotel, we rode a tricycle to get to Ablog terminal, fare is PHP 10.00 each. From the terminal, there are vans available th ...

Mindanao, the Philippines's second largest island has a veil of mystery draped around her. Feared by the uninformed but loved by those who know her true worth and beauty. This series is my tribute for Mindanao, where I've been crisscrossing over the years and where a part of me also comes from. From a distance, the river looks calm except for a few patches of white. Water foams as it hits submerged rocks and boulders. A closer look, however, reveals that it is fast flowing, even turbulent at some parts and ripe for a wild and wet adventure that is water tubing in Maitum's Pangi River system.
