Mountaineering, biking, swimming, food tripping, adventuring are just a few to name as reasons why most tourists would pay the Philippines a visit. Due to the natural wonders that can be seen in the country, Philippines remained to be a top pick for travelers.
1. Nature park
One of its major cities, Davao, has a pride of its own. Eden Nature Park is located at the foot of Mt. Talomo, Calinan, Davao Del Sur. It took us an hour’s drive from the city to get there. Travel time, of course, would vary depending on one’s transport option.
3. Shuttle Tour
Eden is one of the major attractions we found best for family or friends wanting to enjoy the serenity of lush greens. We were offered a guided shuttle tour that brought us to see their tropical plants, fruit trees, and acres of pines. It was not bad to pay Php 120.00 per person as the place is too big for us to walk around.
2. Balai Kalimudan
Balai Kalimudan is such a quiet place to spend our time together. It was so breathtaking to look at the wonders of nature whilst resting under the roof of this tiny house made of nipa. It was also great to learn about the indigenous people’s lifestyle. The Lumads of Mindanao are one of these groups who started a civilization in this land many many years ago.
History has so much to tell about this place. The Tinubdan is a replica village built in the heart of Eden. The shaman’s houses and statues of Lumads doing farming also brought us to the knowledge of Mindanao’s indigenous heritage.
4. Vista Restaurant
It was time for our feet to rest and our tummy to get going. After a long tiring tour at the park, we lavished ourselves with a delicious lunch buffet. It cost us Php 520.00 per adult and Php 330.00 for children. Varieties of fruits, Davao cuisines, and unlimited drinks were served from 11.30am until 2.00pm.
5. Nature sports
Nature sports and swimming are also available. Unfortunately, we didn’t go for it because our time is limited. We have to hurry back in the city for a special dinner. So the next time around, we might extend for an overnight stay. If you are up for nature loving experience, we highly recommend Eden Nature Park And Resort.
