Travelling and discovering new places is really a must for me. Since that time came when I can fund for my own travels, I started travelling. It may be just domestic travel but at least I’m gradually stepping up my game and praying for my international trip to push through this year. 🙂 Wish me luck! It’s like a therapy for me, aside from the much needed time out of work, it’s a great avenue to learn and discover new things about myself, the people around me, the culture and the world as a whole. So when an opportunity presented itself that would allow me to travel and be in a place where I have never been, I grabbed it with much gusto. That’s when I discover the Hijo Estates in the heart of Davao Gulf.
Together with my fellow Davao Bloggers we experienced, marveled and enjoyed the place with so much energy and enthusiasm. It was a day of walking, discovering and marveling ourselves both with nature and man made creations.
Hijo Estates– a 760 hectare property that aims to be a premier community with complete amenities like a world class resort, residential villas, school, international port, orchard within a forest, church and a commercial center, all in one estate for you to enjoy. However, beyond the dream of the owners for this property to become the world class destination they are still doing their best to improve the area with a minimal effects on the environment, thus still preserving the natural beauty of the nature and environment.
Like what I said in Hijo Estates you really get to see all nature could offer without having to hop in to many places. In this property one can find a forest that has abundance of wildlife creatures both animals and plants.
This must be one of the most picturesque place I’ve been into. The calmness and the serenity of the place was enough to blow all your worries away. (Oh diba parang poem lang, hehehe) But kidding aside, if you want to relax and just marvel how you are so blessed to have witnessed such a wonderful view, The Spot is the right place for you. You can also enjoy fishing and dining at their restaurant.
Ever wondered how there is a beach resort in a banana and coconut plantation? Indeed there is with the Banana Beach Resort, a 4km stretch of black shoreline (from a volcanic ash) with an infinity pool, massage area, restaurant and non and air conditioned cottages.
Together with the ICTSI or the International Container Terminal Services Incorporated, this port aims to be a world class international port that will connect Davao Gulf to the rest of the world.
