LET’S GO TO TUPI
Written by RB Jane
Tupi is located in South Cotabato in the Philippines. This place is known for its blooming beauty. Yes! You read it right!
Not all places that are part of the Cotabato Provinces are not safe to travel; in fact, the declaration of martial law in the whole Island of Mindanao busters the security and safety of the public because of the visibility and authority given to our men in uniforms.
To explore Tupi is an effortless way because everything is just a matter of sightseeing. Just along the national highway from General Santos City going to the City of Coronadal, you will pass the vast pineapple farms, and that’s the cue you are already enjoying in Tupi.
You can easily spot several flower garden signages.
First is the Marianos Blooming Agri Tourism Park.
Located at Purok 3A Brgy. Poblacion Tupi South Cotabato. Mariano’s is home to famous sunflowers who also sell sunflower seeds, various flowers, and activities such as bird feeding and flower picking.
Surely you will fall in love with the beautiful sunshine, but check if the sunflower is blooming season on your visit dates.
Next on the list is Eden’s Flower Farm. Not just one variety of flowers but just like its offering, they have a huge variety for your choosing. Their flowers are like covering a whole part of a mountain. So if you like walking in a giant maze of flower fields, be sure to visit this place. They are located at Lemblisong, Kablon 9505 in Tupi.
Another must-visit is the Matutum Blooms Cafe’ and Flower Garden. Just like what they advertise, they are a “Relaxing nature haven.” Aside from the beauty of the flower farm and a glimpse of the mighty Mt. Matutum, the place also serves excellent food and other delights.
