  10. hi baterya , Kidapawan City is in North Cotabato a different province from South Cotabato and about 2 1/2 hours drive away from Koronadal City, capital of South Cotabato.. :)

    ReplyDelete
  11. hahaha.. oo nga hahaha .. thanks for correcting me.. theres no traffic there and yet 2 1/2 hours. thats far

    ReplyDelete
  12. In the era of Internet, blog writing is a very appropriate way to support the travel industry. Other provinces in the Philippines should emulate South Cotabato's approach to tourism promotion.

  13. Good luck on this one. Hopefully, the ones who win are the ones deserving of it.

  14. I have never been to festivals. Growing up I didn't pay attention to festivals till I was in college. I want to experience how festivals are celebrated and to experience the rich culture we have. I don't have a province so it's something I want to experience.

    Good luck to those who are joining! :)
