If you plan your General Santos holiday in September, you’re in for a real treat. The annual Tuna Festival showcases GenSan’s fishy culture with the fishing boat parade, a sashimi night and (naturally) a best-dressed tuna competition. If you can’t make it for the festival, just take a cab or the car rental you’ve booked with Wotif to the docks for a guided tuna tour. It’ll include rubber wading boots so you can get right into the action. Is your annual leave coming due in another month? Book General Santos accommodation during February and enjoy the traditional cooking, dance and handicrafts of the Kalilangan Festival.
But really, no matter when you plan your getaway you can enjoy the white sand beaches of Glana and Gumasa; plunge into the sea at Diver’s Point; or tee off right near the water. Visit Plaza General Santos in the centre of the city and see the beautiful fountain, walk the flagstone pathway and admire General Paulino Santos Monument. Wotif’s hotels in General Santos help you experience it all!
General Santos International Airport (GES) is just 14 km from the city and most General Santos hotels. To get downtown, climb aboard a colourful jeepney or jump on a tricycle cab. Either way, you’re sure to have an adventure just getting to your accommodation (booked right here on Wotif of course).
And why not extend your adventure to include more of the Philippines? We’ve got Manila hotels too, so you can get the most out of your trip with some time in the capital. Book today!
