  1. Wow! Great blog. So helpful blog. I'll use this as a guide.

    granton world

  2. I have visited Davao Crocodile Park and Eden Mountain Resort, both places are nice, the only downside is getting to the place it self. It is much better to have a private vehicle when going to these two places.
    Maybe this summer my target is The Philippine Eagle Nature Center. Although malayo masyado hehehe.
