Landscaping Views in Gensan

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The views above are some of the works of landscapers in the city.  There we would see different styles of landscaping.  We can see fountains, water falls, wall gardens and grotto.


  • Obviously, these are jet or stream of water made artificially by landscapers.

Water falls

  • This is  water from a height.  Landscapers can imitate the views of natural water falls.

Wall Gardens

  • It is a garden hanging at the wall.  Landscapers know so much about the plants that survive in wall.


  • This is usually an imitation of a cave.  Here in Gensan, landscaper’s layman’s term of grotto is a combination of a cave and Virgin Mary.

The Virgin Paradise

A friend of mine went to a beach he called paradise. He said it was one of the most beautiful beaches he found in his life. Every corner of the beach made him think that he doesn’t want to go back in the city.

The beach is located near Gensan. It is surrounded by mountains and fine white sands. The ocean water looks so pure and untouched. He said, it was a perfect place to relax and to experience the beauty of nature.

Many places like this beach can be seen near in Gensan. Our neighboring place like Sarangani province has so many Virgin Islands and beaches. These things are some of the must see places of tourists. I’m sure, they would really appreciate the beauty of the place.

Favorite Strolling Place of the Generals

As one of the Generals, I would like to give you some ideas of where most of the Generals stroll when they want to have time for themselves.

Here are the lists:

1.  Malls – Observe malls on Sundays and you will see bunch of people in that place.  We just love to window shop or buy anything that could catch our eyes.  Anyways, there are 4 malls in the city.  We have KCC, Gaisano, Fitmart and Robinsons.  By the way, the city is going to have another mall soon, it’s SM mall and everyone is so excited including myself.

2.  Beaches – Generals love beach.  We are surrounded with waters that’s why it isn’t so hard for us to go swimming.  I know some beaches like Maharlika, Tropicana, London & Gumasa.  Generals know those beaches.  Actually, we have so many here.  I just mentioned the most known.

3.  Plaza de Heneral Santos – Well, plaza here was renovated and it’s all worth it.  All the views look awesome and relaxing.  You can sit there and listen to fine music.

4.  Peria – We love to go there.  Actually most of the people watch out for Peria to open.  Everyone enjoys going there.

There are so much to tell, but I have only summarized the most common place where Generals stroll.  Well, if you can add something then feel free to make comments and suggestions.
