Dahilayan Adventure Park is located at Manolo Fortich, Bukidnod, about 40 km away from the Cagayan de Oro airport and 4,700 feet above sea level. Getting there took about an hour, affording us a free tour of acres upon acres of pineapple plantations along the way.

Rhiannon and I (Team Eagle Creek) were on the third leg of our back packing adventure sponsored by Cebu Pacific and Canon, and we were totally psyched to ride Asia’s longest dual zipline --840 meters to be exact.

We opted to visit Malahibong Manok and Bonito Islands off Batangas. Our route took us through Cuenca and Alitag-tag along the old national road to Batangas City. This scenic route is covered with the lush vegetation inherent in the province of Batangas, with lanzones trees, road concessionaires and provincial homes constructed in uniform angles from the main road.

Luckily, there’s the Island Garden City of Samal. A mere 20-minute boat ride from Davao City, it’s the site of Playa Azalea, a new seaside residential community currently under the development of Landco Pacific Corporation (developer of Playa Laiya and Playa Calatagan, other resort communities in Batangas).
