Destination: Glan Sarangani

Philippines is trully surprising i almost had a cardiac when i found out about this little island of Glan down south of the Philippines in Sarangani (SoCCSKSarGen) Province to be exact. i never expect that province is hiding a paradise, well now i know. anyways back to our destination Glan is a 1st class municipality it has a population of 83,051 people in 16,990 households. it is bordered on the west by Sarangani Bay, on the north by Davao del Sur, and on the south by the Celebes Sea. the towns economy is mainly based on agriculture,fishing and just recently Glan made known its tourism potential but still waiting to be discover by many. there are now few inns in the island.and there is a very controversial hotel resort in the island but i am not sure if it is operating already well it is not just an ordinary beach resort it is a very expensive resort hotel which according to report only have 30 rooms with a staggering price of 250 million pesos. the reason why im not sure if the resort was operating or not is because i have read an article regarding the hotel's investor being blacklisted by the immigration authority back in 2003 so the operation was put on hold the project is around 70% finish. so now its 2007 i hope everything went fine with that resort. anyways just when you think that the island is ll about white sand beaches well you are wrong as Glan is also rich in history and heritage and an ambiance of an old town. Glan distinctively remains an uncharted tourism hub and a paradise in waiting.

Getting There:

Glan is accessible by plane or boat from Manila and Cebu via General Santos City and by any means of Land Transportation. it is approximately 40 minute travel time from the capital town and a 1 hour drive from General Santos City in a 55 km world class highway passing through a breathtaking mountain and seaside view.
