Wow GenSan! (Part 1)

The first time I visited GenSan early this year the only thing I got to experience was eating the fresh tuna sashimi at Orange Bistro (again and again) and the only other place I was able to go to was the KCC Mall. I was there for work, as usual, and my trip lasted about 24 hours.

And I prayed fervently that I'd be able to go back.

I was really happy when I got invited to visit again because of the 2nd Mindanao Bloggers Summit. I met Avel during the Davao F.A.T. and he then mentioned that if MBS was going to be held at GenSan then he'd invite me to come.

Fast-forward to the trip.

We took a land trip from Davao to GenSan after dining at Lachi's and arrived about 3 hours later. It was a full nature trip since we got to see mountains, a glimpse of the sea and mango and banana plantations. We had a short stop-over at the Family Country Hotel and then headed to the East Asia Royale Hotel to check-in. We just dropped our bags and then headed for "Grab-a-Crab" for dinner. After dinner we just hung-out at the hotel resto and had LOTS of blueberry cheesecake!

During the end of the second day we grabbed some coffee from "Coffee Club 101" (beside Grab-a-Crab), I absolutely love the place coz it has great coffee, great food and uber fast wifi!
